Doctor Who star, David Morrissey, who starred in the 2008 Christmas special, The Next Doctor, has released his views on 11th Doctor, Matt Smith. He was inteviewed by the Chester Chronicle in their report about the new Channel 4 film trilogy, Red Riding, where Morrissey stars as Detective Inspector Maurice Jobson.
“I’m a massive fan of his. I don’t know him at all but I know his work and he’s a great actor, I’m really glad they haven’t just gone for a celebrity, they’ve gone for an actor, and a great actor at that,” he says.
However, unlike David Tennant, the actor DID NOT give any advice to the young star on how to play the part.
“I don’t think I’d give him any advice. The main thing is to always do your job to the best of your ability and if there’s anything that gets in the way of your job you should get it out of your life. I think he looks young but he’s done a lot of work and I think he’ll be fine. The people who run Doctor Who are great and they’ll look after him, and I’m sure he’ll relish it,” he says.
