Good god. The Guardiian review of the Xmas WHO outing has praised it heavily and muchly ( is that a word?) , however they go on to say that Matt Smith was slightly annoying in it. Which he was. Which makes me wonder if he is slightly annoying generally? He's briilliant in the role but is he... slightly annoying?
I would say yes.
My Dad watched WHO with me this year and said at the end. " That was really crap" . His verdict, as a non Who fan or even casual watcher since Tom Baker, was that the Doctor didn't actually do much nor did he save the day and the kid playing Doctor Who is... annoying. I found it hard to disgree with him but muttered soomething about it being an xmas special and they are usually not the same as ...blah blah.
I wish The Guardian hadn't said he was slightly annoying because ...... well because he is. And I've blocked that out , i've been in denial about it. He's not ALWAYS annoying but its when he starts going into high pitched tones annd waving his arms around he gets more annoying than Tenant ever was when he did it, it seemed to work when he did it.
p.s Tom Baker was never annoying , except when he didn't look at Leela and Romana 2 because he was annoyed with them in real life, that got a bit annoying. Who knew watching WHO could be so bothersome!
