Another in my new line of reviews although I am pleased to say it happily crosses over to rants my favourite of all the categories.
The target for today’s joyful romp through the alphabet is the new series of Dr Who.
I should perhaps start by stating from the top that I am not a Dr Who fanatic I confess it did play a part in my childhood but has never been rock solid in my soul. Therefore this review/rant is written through the eyes of a “layman” no Who expert am I.
Two words or if you prefer one name is perhaps my theme, Matt Smith.
I mean really? The man has the charisma and charm of a wooden mannequin, he is like a walking breadstick with hair from a lego man.
I remember hiding behind various items of furniture when young watching the good Dr now I cover my eyes with sheer embarrassment for all concerned.
Replacing David Tennant with the flop haired leaden Smith is like having a plate of the finest steak you could imagine (please insert suitable vegetarian option of choice) with a tin of spam no make that half a tin of out of date spam which is slightly mouldy.
And Amy Pond the Drs glamorous assistant ? I fear her skirt will get shorter and shorter as the viewing figures surely will. Leaving her in terrible danger of frost bite of the bottom should the Tardis land them somewhere cold. You cant help the feeling however that given a decent pair of trousers she would kick breadstick boy’s wooden bottom should she be given the lead role!
Even the Tardis has turned daft losing its identity and becoming some sort of toy for children in a Dr’s surgery waiting room, covered in a plethora of germs.
I mean no disrespect to Mr Smith strangely I don’t know him. Maybe he is a good actor in the right role one can only pray so, me I see him as the star in a remake of Andy Pandy.
Sadly he brings forth so many mixed emotions in me (none pleasant) that whenever he is on screen I just want to tie him to a chair that spins, spin that chair for half an hour then throw him into a locked room full of Daleks.
We all need to hope for a swift regeneration very soon.
