Smith will be the 11th incarnation of the Doctor on a series which has run since 1963.
The Northampton-born is in the upcoming Moses Jones, and has previously appeared in Party Animals, Secret Diary of a Call Girl and The Ruby in the Smoke.
Stylistically, Smith is not a far cry from Tennant’s own image potential. Both young, energetic and potentially trendy, the change is not as dramatic as some had hoped or feared. And although he looks like the drug addict in your local alleyway and boasts an impressive nose, he seems a plausible candidate for a fanatical new fan base.
The 26-year old becomes the youngest to have ever played the role.
