Smith: The best storytelling was in Series 5

Pandorica-Opens-(3)Doctor Who TV readers recently voted Series 5 the best of Matt Smith’s era, but what does the man himself think?

Speaking at the Wizard World Con panel, Smith said: “For me the best storytelling was in Series 5. It had great adventure and great clarity and I loved that whole idea about the Pandorica and the Big Bang. It was the one I connected with most.”

On the Series 6 twists he says: “I think in terms of revelations River being Amy’s daughter was a bit ‘what the hell?!'”

Smith’s Doctor was of course known for his big speeches and he gave preference again to one from Series 5: “I think it has to be when I talking to the spaceships in The Pandorica Opens.

He adds: “Looking back I think some of my best work was in my first series because I was actually taking real risks and that was a real moment.”
