Le nom du 11e Docteur

C'est officiel, la BBC l'a annoncé : le Onzième acteur à jouer le Docteur sera révélé demain, Samedi 3 Décembre.
Son nom sera révélé dans le "Doctor Who Confidential", diffusé demain à 17H35 en Angleterre, soit 18H35 en France. Dans cette émission, nous verrons l'acteur du Docteur 11 donner ses premières impressions sur le fait de jouer le nouveau Docteur.

Site de la BBC

D'après, la BBC, l'acteur a été confirmé durant la période de Noël et commencera à jouer le Docteur cet été, pour la saison 5, qui sera diffusée en 2010.
Le nouveau producteur de la série, Piers Wenger, a déclaré "We believe the actor is going to bring something very special to the role and will make it absolutely their own. I just can't wait to tell everyone who it is - it has been a nail-biting Christmas trying to keep this under wraps!".

Le 11e Docteur sera

Matt Smith








New Doctor actor is youngest ever


Matt Smith has been named as the actor who will take over from David Tennant in Doctor Who - making him the youngest actor to take on the role.
At 26, Smith is three years younger than Peter Davison when he signed up to play the fifth Doctor in 1981.

Smith will first appear on TV screens as the 11th Doctor in 2010.

He was cast over Christmas and will begin filming for the fifth series of Doctor Who in the summer. Tennant is filming four specials in 2009.
Smith was named as Tennant's replacement in Saturday's edition of Doctor Who Confidential on BBC One.

He said: "I feel proud and honoured to have been given this opportunity to join a team of people that has worked so tirelessly to make the show so thrilling.
"David Tennant has made the role his own, brilliantly, with grace, talent and persistent dedication. I hope to learn from the standards set by him.
"The challenge for me is to do justice to the show's illustrious past, my predecessors, and most importantly, to those who watch it. I really cannot wait."
Piers Wenger, head of drama at BBC Wales, said that as soon as he had seen Smith's audition he "knew he was the one".
"It was abundantly clear that he had that 'Doctor-ness' about him," he said. "You are either the Doctor or you are not. It's just the beginning of the journey for Matt.
"With Steven Moffat's scripts and the expertise of the production team in Cardiff behind him, there is no one more perfect to be taking the Tardis to exciting new futures when the series returns in 2010."
Wenger said a broad range of people had been auditioned, but they had not set out to cast the youngest Doctor.
Smith's TV debut was in the 2006 adaptation of Philip Pullman's The Ruby in the Smoke, which starred former Doctor Who companion Billie Piper as Sally Lockhart.

He has also acted opposite Piper in the follow-up, The Shadow in the North, and in ITV2's Secret Diary of a Call Girl.
In 2007, he had a leading role in BBC Two's political drama Party Animals, in which he played a parliamentary researcher.
Smith's stage work has included stints with theatre companies such as the Royal Court and National Theatre. His West End debut was in Swimming With Sharks opposite Christian Slater.

He was born in Northampton in 1982 and studied drama and creative writing at the University of East Anglia.

Bon, je ne vous cacherai pas que ma première réaction à cette annonce a été du genre : No affraid affraid No
ccompagné d'un cri qui a étonné mes invités présents dans la même pièce :

Cri
Spoiler:
Quoiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Mais c'est pas possible !!!!! c'est une blague


Et puis c'est vrai que dans ma tête je voyais quelqu'un de plus "mûr" physiquement et faisant moins "jeune premier" à peine sorti de l'adolescence...

Car excusez moi, mais il fait quand même très jeune pour un gallifreyen de 903 ans, ayant tout perdu de son monde d'origine ainsi que sur son monde d'adoption : La Terre... et tout le Background qu'il traine...

Mais bon, je ne le connais absolument pas... je ne l'ai jamais vu jouer dans une série ou un film... donc ... mon avis n'est donné qu'à chaud et sur l'apparence extérieure...

Qui vivra, verra... dit-on... donc attendons et laissons lui sa chance de nous étonner et de nous faire (non pas oublier...) mais au moins adoucir le goût amer des départs de nos chers Christopher Eccleston et David Tennant, ce qui sera une performance de très haut niveau...

Alors, Mrs Moffat et Smith (coïncidence ???), nous vous attendons de pieds fermes en 2010.... Ne nous décevez pas...

Quelques informations biographiques



Matt Smith, 26, grew up with his family including one sister in Northampton. He was head boy at Northampton School For Boys where he excelled at sports, music and drama.

Initially, Matt wanted to be a professional footballer and played for Northampton Town Under 11 and 12s, Nottingham Forest Under 12,13,14s and Leicester City Under 15 and 16s before a back injury forced him out of the game.

Following his injury, and with the encouragement of one of his teachers, Jerry Hardingham, Matt decided to join the National Youth Theatre. It was during this time that Matt first gained attention at the Royal Court Theatre when he was cast in the play Fresh Kills, directed by Wilson Milam, whilst still at the University Of East Anglia where he was studying Drama and Creative Writing.

Already a stalwart of the National Youth Theatre, his performance at the Court led to a variety of theatrical experiences at the National Theatre: in the award winning History Boys (directed by Nick Hytner), On The Shore Of The Wide World (directed by Sarah Frankcom) and also in the acclaimed trio of plays Burn / Citizenship / Chatroom (directed by Anna Mackmin).

These roles led to Matt's first outings on the small screen, alongside Billie Piper in Phillip Pullman's period detective stories, The Ruby in the Smoke and The Shadow in the North, where he played Jim, right hand man to Billie's detective heroine Sally Lockhart. These pieces were followed by the lead role of Danny in the BBC Two series Party Animals, the brilliantly observed drama set in the world of young politicians.

In a dazzling return to the Royal Court in 2007, Matt played Henry in Polly Stenham's award winning first play That Face, opposite Lindsay Duncan. His performance gained Matt an Evening Standard Best Newcomer nomination and a year later the play had a second life in the West End at the Duke of York's Theatre. In between the two runs, Matt played Guy opposite Christian Slater's Buddy in Swimming With Sharks, Mike Leslie's searing West End adaptation of the 1994 Hollywood film. In this time he also played a lead role in the BAFTA winning BBC One series, The Street, opposite Gina McKee and Lorraine Ashbourne.

Matt has recently completed work on Moses Jones for BBC Two, directed by Michael Offer, in which he plays the lead role of Dan Twentyman, alongside Shaun Parkes in the title role.

Quelques articles...

Site qui récapitule sur3 pages, les réactions de la presse après l'annonce de Matt Smith dans le rôle du 11e Doctor = kasterborous.com

Matt Smith Reactions


Here's a selection of what the press and other commentators make of the news..

Northants Evening Telegraph(Matt's local paper, we're guessing...) has a story about Matt's parents' reactions:

Mother Lynne said she was delighted her "little boy" was set to become the youngest actor ever to play The Doctor. She said: "We're absolutely delighted, it's just amazing news and we're so proud. We know he's going to be amazing in the show."

I can't help echoing the sentiment of that last sentence. From the little I've seen of him I have high hopes!

Article en entier

Entertainment Wise website focuses on Matt's role in Secret Diary of a Call Girl with accompanying photos of his character in bed with Billie Piper's character Belle. The last picture of the gallery reminds me of a young Bill Nighy - I wonder if that crossed the minds of the-powers-that-be?

The Stage does the same sort of round up of his short career to date as everyone else above (Ruby in The Smoke, History Boys, The Face, yada yada yada) but there's also a blog post here that hits the nail on the head regarding "fandom" and how some so-called fans had the claws out straight away -

Of course, within seconds (yes, seconds) the usual narrow-minded, ignorant and sweaty-palmed drivel from the fan message boards erupted across the web. If Smith were to read even a couple of lines of some fairly tedious keyboard dribbling, then he’d probably hand his notice in before he’s even started. It goes with the territory, naturally, but some of the things I read on Sunday morning made me genuinely sad, especially as amongst the bile were some genuinely warm messages of welcome that got lost in the crowd. The thing to remember is that the fans shout the loudest, but it’s the other 10 million audience members that will get your show recommissioned. And therein lies the dichotomy of fandom…

"The usual narrow-minded, ignorant and sweaty-palmed drivel from the fan message boards erupted across the web" indeed. We here at Kasterborous Towers and the members of the Kasterborous forum wish Matt Smith the very best of luck and send our heartfelt congratulations his way.

We are not so narrow minded here as to launch an attack at him and the showrunners for not being/casting the "flavour of the month" actor. If there's one thing to be learned from the nay-saying knee-jerk reactions to the announcement in 2007 that Catherine Tate would return full time as Donna Noble in S4 for 2008, its that we should never pre-judge a performance we haven't seen yet.

Wales Online quotes our very own esteemed (sometimes "steamed") editor Christian Cawley (atomickarma) in an article covering positive reactions...

Across on the forum hosted by the Kasterborous Online Magazine, atomickarma posted:

“It’s a great piece of casting, you know, and I cannot wait to see what he does with it. His age came as a shock when I first got wind of him this morning, but I’ve eaten my hat, everything else is as it was, so bring it on!”

Wales Online also covers reactions in a slightly less positive piece here where they quote atomickarma again, but in brief and without a credit. I suspect this version of the article was an earlier attempt garnered from interviewing Joe Public before they found a more positive spin. Or something.

The Guardian covers the initial outburst of bile here quoting various users on the OG and drwho-online forums (I'm sure there were positive comments as well, but, y'know, negativity sells papers...) and they also have a nice photo gallery here. They have an earlier article on the announcement where they quote Sophie Aldred, who played companion "Ace" alongside Sylvester McCoy's Seventh Doctor

"I'm delighted. I'm so pleased that they haven't chosen a big name but gone with someone who's obviously a good actor but not well known to the public at large.

"He's got a very interesting face and a fantastic presence. It's going to be a difficult job to follow David Tennant, but I think he'll be a safe pair of hands."

The same article gives a positive quote from DWO editor Sebastian Brook, though, so its not all doom and gloom!

"We think it is a great choice to have someone so young. David Tennant was the most energetic Doctor ever, and you need somebody with youth and energy to take that forward,"

The Telegraph has a good article to introduce Matt Smith citing reviews of how good his stage work is and points out that David Tennant was also a relative unknown to TV audiences when he got called up to the role, having only played in Casanova after cutting his acting teeth on the stage

It's easy to forget that the only major TV David Tennant had done before he became the Doctor was BBC3's hit-and-miss Casanova...Like Tennant, Smith has already made his name on the stage before becoming the Doctor, even if he hasn't done much screen work. He had several minor roles, one of which was in Alan Bennett's National Theatre hit The History Boys.

Then in 2007 came his major breakthrough: the part of a disturbed, abused adolescent in the Royal Court's play That Face. Smith was "outstanding" according to The Daily Telegraph; "the star of the evening" said The Sunday Times; "virtuoso", "mesmerising", "heart-rending" said three other critics. I saw his performance in That Face and it was devastating.

The article finishes with a rather interesting statement

Smith is of the Harry Potter generation and so his Doctor Who may be full of the sense of myth and mystery found in the tales of the boy wizard – one quality that Tennant's Doctor maybe lacks.

I like that. It would be good to get the sense of myth and mystery back. The mystery that the classic series tried to recapture towards the end of the original run with Sylvester McCoy's Doctor telling Davros "I am so much more than a Time Lord..."

The Daily Mail quote some unnamed "Whovians" from somewhere on the web in their article

Some fans suggested the BBC had chosen an unknown actor to cut down on costs, while others said they wanted to create love interest in the show. 'They say age is irrelevant so why not cast a 40-year-old?' one Whovian wrote.

'Because a 26-year- old will be more marketable and they want to create another tedious love interest, even though the Doctor has never really been into women in that way.'

News also spread around the world via Associated Press and Reuters releases and made its way into various news outlets such as :

Chicago Daily Herald
USA Today
Baltimore Sun
CTV.ca
Newsweek
Forbes

Other sites such as
Newsarama.com go into more detail and the news has even registered in China, no less, on The China Post.

Alors, après avoir (enfin) vu le confidential... mes doutes se sont envolés ;)

Je pense réellement que Matt Smith fera un bon Doctor... Il est effectivement "jeune et vieux" à la fois. Il a un quelque chose dans le regard... et dans sa façon de bouger et de s'exprimer qui correspond à ce que l'on attend du Doctor.

et puis, il aurait suffit des 4 dernières secondes pour me faire changer d'avis par rapport à ce que j'ai écrit précédemment... ou plutôt de ces deux photos... Maintenant je sais... Je ne penses pas que nous seront déçus par sa performance... au contraire il apportera sa touche personnelle au personnage, mais restera Le Doctor de ces 45 dernières années ;)
