Matt Smith (‘Dr. Who’) looks adorable in London: would you hit it?

Dear Whovian Nerds: don’t say I never do anything for you!!! Here are some new photos of your beloved Matt Smith/Dr. Who in London today. He was arriving at the BBC Radio studios and he stopped to greet his fans and sign autographs, which is always nice. I guess he was promoting the Dr. Who Christmas Special, which is something of thing, right? (I don’t live in England, which is sad for me because I love British Dong.) I believe the British get special Christmas programs, like special episodes of Dr. Who and Downton Abbey and such. You can read some spoilers for this year’s Christmas episode of Dr. Who here.

I’ve never been a Whovian (I know, I know, I should get into it), but I do like this Matt Smith guy. I think he’s way cuter than the previous Dr. Who, David Tennant. I know there is a lot of discussion amongst the Whovians, and some Tennant Fans feel like they’re betraying their dude by enjoying Matt Smith. Matt Smith just seems… naughty. He seems to be having fun. Tennant always seems to take himself so seriously. Maybe I’m wrong and I’m about to be yelled at by a bunch of fan-girls. We’ll see.

So, as to the question of whether or not I would hit it… sure. I like his hair, and I love a tall, gangly dude. He’s a cutie! Also: from what I know, he’s not gay. He was dating Daisy Lowe (Gavin Rossdale’s daughter), but they broke up earlier this year. So… definitely straight (or straight enough).

    I personally love Matt Smith and would hit it all day, every day, that’s all I got..

  2. Amelia says:

    Don’t worry Kaiser, you’re not alone on the David Tennant front; after a while he becomes quite grating. I don’t really consider him a particularly brilliant actor either – he does the same old thing for nearly every character. I can’t believe he was considered for the Bilbo Baggins role …
    Matt Smith seems much more game for a laugh. Not keen on the new assistant though.
    Do you not get Christmas specials Stateside? Hmm. It must be a British thing then!

  3. cmc says:

    The Christmas Special airs on BBC America too, so we get to watch it here! YAY! But:

    “I think he’s way cuter than the previous Dr. Who, David Tennant.”

    Girl, I will fight you. David Tennant is the Doctor-iest Doctor who was ever the Doctor, and I love him! Matt Smith (11) is okay- every new incarnation has his own quirks and I like this Doctor as more of a silly, brother-type buddy, whereas 10 (Tennant) is flat out sexy.

    Anyway, I can’t find myself attracted to Matt Smith the person because he has no eyebrows.

  4. berry says:

    Love Doctor Who and I like Matt Smith but David Tennant is my fave Doctor.

  5. Alexandra Bananarama says:

    HUGE Doctor Who fan! All that tortured, lonely, seductive, hero stuff. The doctor is hot! The actors… not all that appealing to me.

  6. MJsinAustin says:

    no. He needs eyebrows I think.
    But – the LAST Doctor – David Tennant – I would hit it in a heartbeat.

  7. Justyna says:

    I love Matt Smith. When I first saw his pictures I tought he is really, really ugly but after watching him as a Doctor I started crushing on him. Not in a Benedict Cumberbatch kid of way – I don’t think Matt looks much better and sexier onscreen like Benedict does, it’s just that he has such a great charisma as a Doctor and he seems to be such a warm, nice and fun person in real life. I’m glad I’m not the only one who likes him more than Tennant. I’m a Whovian nerd and I liked Tennant just fine (though I found his screaming annoying at times), but Smith is my favourite Doctor.

  8. Jenna says:

    Cuter than David Tennant?!?! Gurrrl, you need to stop!

    And Tennant was my Doctor, so I’ll always love him. It took me a while to get used to 11, but I love him now. Can’t wait for the Christmas special. But no. I wouldn’t hit it. Love him to death, but no. Not with those ears and that forehead.

  9. Bodhi says:


    It was the Nerdist Celebrity Bowling episode with the Dr Who cast that sold me on him

  10. LeBarron says:

    Heh. Yes, you may get swamped by Tennant fangirls.

    When it comes to the show, I love both Ten (Tennant) and Eleven (Smith) but Nine (Eccleston) is my Doctor.

    As far as attractiveness goes, David Tennant as the Doctor was a serious hot piece. I still swoon when he wears a tux in seasons 2 and 3. Plus, he’s Scottish in real life, and I’m a sucker for a Scotsman. But I’ve seen recent photos of him, and I don’t think he’s aged so well. He looks quite gaunt or something. He peaked, in terms of hotness, when he was on Doctor Who.

    Matt Smith seems wonderful and charming from everything I’ve seen of him, but he doesn’t do it for me.

    • AmyLynne says:

      The suit! And those glasses….sweet Jesus.

    • Brittney says:

      Totally agree with your entire comment!! After every regeneration it’s taken me a long time to warm up to the Doctor’s next incarnation, but Nine will probably always be my favorite, because he was my first. He’s less “pretty” or “goofy” and more of what I think the Doctor should be — strong, confident (but humble), masculine (but hilarious), etc.

      (I’ve since seen the classic seasons too, of course, and love each of them in their own way. The Fifth is fantastic, especially when you’re already used to Tennant’s homage.)

    • GoodCapon says:

      Thank you! We need more Eccleston love here. He’s often forgotten because he only did one season, but he was my favorite Doctor since the reboot. Part of me thinks I still pine for him because he was gone so quickly…

      I also find him oddly attractive sometimes. I think it’s just his northern accent :-)

  11. AmyLynne says:

    I literally saw this on my phone and got on my laptop because I can’t leave comments on my phone. I was just bemoaning the lack of Matt Smith on here, even though he’s often lacking, gossip-wise.

    But anyway, I would hit it. I would hit it a thousand times, then I’d get a drink of water and hit it again. Like you said about Cumby, I’d send my mother up a river in a basket to get him…guh I just love him so much.

  12. Dorothy#1 says:

    David Tennant is soooooo hot! Best Doctor ever!! Love, love, love him. Matt smith is pretty good too ;)

  13. kay says:

    Love Dr Who. The Weeping Angels freak me out.

    Bring back the Ponds! I know they change companions, but I loved Amy Pond.

  14. dcypher1 says:

    I luv dr who its my fav tv show. I would luv to ride his tardis. The other doc is hot too david tennant. I cant decide between the two on whos my fav doc. Cant wait to see the new episodes.

  15. MerryHappy says:

    I love the doctor! I did feel like i didn’t want to like may Smith after David Tennant left–i love me some David Tennant! But Matt grew on me and i loved him. But i don’t find him hot, oddly enough. He’d be like a cheeky friend, not a hit-able man. I can’t wait for the Christmas special!

  16. j.eyre says:

    In these photos, yes. And because I am in a general ‘hitting it’ it mood, yes to Tennant too. My TV died last night so I will be postponing my conversion to Whoian for some time now.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Tennant is a massive yes. Smith is too, but I always feel guilty cos Mr Kiki pointed out that he bears an uncanny resemblance to a close friend who I used to hook up with back in the day.

      Edit: soz J that was supposed to be a separate comment I wasn’t hi-jacking your comment!

    • keats says:

      Haha ‘general ‘hitting it’ mood.’ I like.

    • j.eyre says:

      Ms. Kiki darling, never apologize for jumping on my comment – I adore the company. I also appreciate the Mr. K story as I gave up my McAvoy obsession because of a resemblance to a practice boyfriend. Mr. Rochester never made the connection but it made me feel dirty… although I must say, feeling dirty when it comes to McAvoy is a delicious combination, apologies to Ms. Duff.

      See keats – “hitting it” mood. I am incorrigible today.

  17. Nikole says:

    Barf. He looks like Rocky Dennis.

  18. Isabel says:

    While scanning the homepage I swear I thought it was a pic of Alexander Skarsgard with darker hair, until I opened the full post and saw a big pic. xD

  19. K-rock says:

    No I would not hit it. Never.

  20. indiaGirl says:

    You just have to get DW. They’re different, not better or worse. The first doctor was almost evil, the first in the reboot felt like my father. You really need to watch it.

    • Brittney says:

      He WAS almost evil! It was a bit shocking to realize that the Doctor started out as a defensive old man in a junkyard. It’s insane how far they’ve taken the Doctor in the other direction, though Eleven is far less humble or forgiving than Ten in my book.

  21. K-state says:

    I saw Matt Smith on an episode of Top Gear on BBCAmerica, and I kept feeling that something was off in his appearance. I finally realized it was his lack of eyebrows. It looks so freaky, and now I cant un-see it. Either they’re very light-colored or he doesnt have any. So crazy!

  22. mom2two says:

    I would say looks wise, no I wouldn’t hit. But his personality goes a LONG way. He seems like a really nice guy who enjoys DW and it’s fans. So based on looks alone, no…but because he has a great personality yes.

  23. Marissa says:

    Eeek. I can’t stand it anymore. It’s “Doctor Who” not “Dr.Who” guys :p. But I would hit it, although David Tennant made me swoon for many seasons and it was sad to part with him. I can never choose who my Doctor is. They’re all so interesting and always bring something new and exciting to the table.

    • Jax says:

      Thank you. That’s been irking me too.

      And I swore I wouldn’t love #11 (Smith) as I was quite smitten with #10(Tennant) but I love his delivery and have come to love him although I like #10 paired better with River Song due to the age differences. And I have special love for #9 (Eccelston).

      Never lusted over any of the others since I was too young, but loved this series as a kid.

      • Marissa says:

        I agree! I have to say that I really hated how whiny and dramatic they made #10 after awhile . Even though I loved Rose and him, it got kind of annoying. And it really upsets me that they hardly ever mention the past companions for #11. He is still the Doctor. It would be nice to have a cameo from Captain Jack or something.

        Not to mention the whole “River Song is his wife/ Amy and Rory’s daughter” thing. That was just too much. Along with Rory constantly dying.
        And I reaaaallly wish Chris stayed for a few more seasons. He was my first Doctor. I started the show only earlier this year.. so I was a late Whovian.

  24. Annie says:

    He’s not photogenic…at all, however I do find him quirkily handsome in motion. The second picture is bad and looks like he aged overnight or something.

  25. Doctors Four and Five for me. I do like Matt Smith, though, and I like his take on the Doctor, that juxtaposition of weary old man and excited innocent.

  26. Lila says:

    I always fall for the strange-looking, beautiful Brit guys. Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch – doesn’t get any better than that!

    Thanks for the post, Kaiser!

  27. jamie says:

    I was so upset when Tennant left I had to take a break from Doctor Who and didn’t watch for a few years. Not long ago I got caught up on on Netflix and now I LOVE Matt Smith, maybe even more than Tennant. He’s an acquired taste. And I totally agree, I definitely think he has a naughty streak. Probably a spanker.

  28. LW says:

    I would hit Tennant like the wrath of god.

  29. LAK says:

    i hate commenting on people”s looks but i can’t get over how wierd and strange Matt Smith’s looks are.

    I saw him in a play some years back and he was so odd to look at. It was incredibly distracting.

    I can’t watch his episodes of DR WHO as a result.

  30. nittfox says:

    I would hit that daily,nightly and ever so rightly!

  31. EscapedConvent says:

    Anyone who doubts David Tennant’s heat & hotness ought to watch “The Girl In The Fireplace.” To me, he was the greatest Doctor of all!

  32. Shy says:

    I like Matt Smith more too. He is funny, always has fun and is weirdly hot. David David Tennant was fine, the best Dcctor… until Matt Smiths’s Doctor arrived.

    Agree that David Tennant was too serious with himself. And was overacting a lot.

    Matt Smiths’s Doctor is the one you would fall in love and would date. David Tennant’ Doctor is your uncle. Wise, he is always right, you can depend on him, he will never leave you… and he is your good uncle, or friend of your mom, or good friend of your dad.

    That’s why people love Matt Smith.

  33. Halfmydadsage says:

    Love the Brit posts. More Brit men.

  34. Al says:

    Love Matt Smith as the Doctor, but no I wouldn’t hit it.

    David Tennant, on the other hand, can show me his sonic screwdriver anytime ;)

  35. UghInsomnia says:

    9 was my first doctor, but 10 is MY Doctor!! I love 11, too, though!

    Tennant is fantastic in Cassanova! But I DO love some Matt Smith. It just took a long time to get over my heartbreak of losing Tennant. If I’m even over it.

    Oh god, I’m stuck in a paradox now…

  36. Lindy says:

    Oh yes!!!!!

    God, I love him. Yes, I would hit it all day long in the Tardis. I am a geek like that. And bonus if I can have a Cumby-Matt Smith threesome.

  37. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    I don’t find Matt Smith appealing, but I do understand the ‘naughty’ vibe.
    I too am a huge fan of the 10th Doctor.

    I was so disgusted by the poor writing and massive plot holes in Amelia’s Last Farewell that I’ve wrote off the show. I’m done watching it.

    I won’t go too deep into the entire dynamics of the various personalities of The Doctor after each reincarnation, but I can say that there is far more to it aside from what the new actor brings to the character.

  38. Aurora says:

    I miss david as dr who. Matt is an great actor but I really want to have a sexy dr who back. I really
    don’t see the appeal.

  39. Andrew says:

    First, it’s DOCTOR who, not dr. Who. Second, to all these idiotic commenters gushing over David tennant and want him back: you clearly don’t know how the show works. I’m situated of listening to people complain about Matt smith as if its new news…he’s been the Doctor for almost 3 years, get used to it. I personally think Tennant stayed a bit too long (don’t get me wrong, loved him as the doctor, but didn’t whine when he regenerated)
