He is also vain, ego-centric and quite mad

I remember being very disappointed when I heard he'd been cast as the Doctor, but as soon as I saw The Eleventh Hour I realised how wrong I'd been. He's already definitely my favourite Doctor since the series came back. I just love the 'alienyness' he brings to the part - it's obvious from watching him that he's a 900-year-old alien, the very idea of him being a 20-something actor from Northampton seems absurdly far-fetched. I never really got this feeling with his two predecessors; great as they were, they always seemed a little too human for my tastes.

That perfectly sums up my position as well. When the confidential came on announcing MS as the Dr I wasn't quite hurling things at the screen but when people were asking me how I felt about it It was like I was responding to being given a present I didn't really want. Then the 11th Hour hit me and I loved it and him. His performance in the season finale was truly breathtaking and actually in amongst all of the mixed feelings and ambivalence about other aspects of season 5, I find it is MS's portrayal of the Doctor which is the constant beacon throughout. A dollop of Troughton, a twist of Davison, a hint of Hartnell and some of his own unique style as well. He is definitely a Doctor to savour and I think we haven't even seen half of his true potential yet.
