Day 1 -
About a year ago, if someone had asked me this, I probably would’ve said David Tennant, with Matt Smith as a close second. After the last season, though, I think they’ve flipped. Smith won me over with his ancient-nine-year-old attitude. I absolutely LOVE how he can be so childish and so old and knowing at the same time; not only is it a testament to the Doctor’s character, but also to Smith’s wonderful acting.
And his face—from a completely non-fangirl perspective, it’s beautiful. Not necessarily attractive, but beautiful. His eyes are so expressive. Just one look from them can make you grin like a doofus or cry like it’s Reichenbach. And that, to me, that pure emotion, is gorgeous.
