Doctor Who is now so central to everyone's lives, or rather is assumed to be so, that even newspaper political columnists are launching into trailer-celebrating and Doctor-dissecting, as for that matter are Labour MPs.

What trailer? My current impression of the new Doctor is "Hair, son of Hair".

At the moment Eleven (to use the new vernacular) comes across as a more genuine, less forced version of Ten. Appallingly young, of course, but I think he is going to get away with it.

The more I see of Matt Smith, the more I feel that contrary to my initial "You cannot be serious, he's still in nappies" reaction, his (physical) youth is actually going to work really well.

I think you could be right - on the basis of the trailers (which should of course always be treated with caution) he seems to have more natural authority in the role than David Tennant did.
