Cross: Smith might be Greatest Ever Doctor

neil-cross-matt-smith-2012Neil Cross, the writer behind Series 7 episodes The Rings of Akhaten and Hide, has praised Matt Smith’s Doctor, going as far to say he might be the best ever incarnation of the Time Lord.

Reacting to news of his departure Cross told Stuff: “When he came into our lives as the eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith had some very big Gallifreyan Chuck Taylors to fill. I watched his first episode with sweating palms and crossed fingers: hoping against hope that it would all be okay.

”It was more than okay. Within about ten seconds, I was smiling with relief. He had me at fish fingers and custard; he had us all at fish fingers and custard. By the end of that first episode, The Eleventh Hour, I was punching the air with tears in my eyes.”

He adds: ”Matt Smith is a great Doctor, maybe the greatest Doctor ever . . . because he is the Doctor. Hearts and soul. I’ll miss him desperately. And I can’t wait to see what’s next.”
