Doctor Who: Matt Smith In Costume

It's the eleventh doctor and assistant!

OK, so it's TV, and we've already reported on one TV story today, but this too is a bit too interesting to ignore: it's the first shot of the new Doctor in costume as filming starts on the 2010 series of Doctor Who.

Newcomer Matt Smith is taking over from the much-loved David Tennant as the eleventh Doctor, Time Lord and defender of humanity against all comers. Karen Gillan joins him as awesomely-named sidekick Amy Pond, with Steven Moffat taking over series-producing duties after Russell T. Davies bowed out.

First impressions? For our money, Smith has huuuuge shoes to fill, but we're prepared to give him a chance. How about you?
