Oh my gosh! This must be a historic first ... in the forthcoming Dr Who episode, The Lodger (broadcast this coming Saturday) the Time Lord gets his kit off! Well, not quite the full kit as you can see, but close enough ... What is the programme coming to? In the soon to be screened story, the Doc also plays a game of football with James Corden (pictured left). They must have written this into the show deliberately, as Matt Smith is a bit of a footy fan (and fact fans, before becoming a thespian, Matt S almost embarked on a footballing career, but had to give it all up when he suffered a back injury).
I'm not sure what I think about the prospect of a near-naked Dr on the show. Whilst undoubtedly a fan of the masculine form, and normally happy at the presence of hot male totty, I'm not 100% convinced that the sight of the Time Lord stripping off in the programme is right. Granted, DW has moved on since the days of the old show with its acknowledgement of relationships and things sexual (e.g. Rose snogging the Dr, Captain Jack flirting with the fellas, etc etc) but the Dr has always been a bit exempt from all that stuff. Okay, so in the pic above he's only had a shower and that's all there is to it, but ...
Or am I being a prude about the Doc in the nude?
What are your thoughts, folks? And does Matt Smith's body float your boat? (Incidentally I'm expecting only an affirmative response from the girls and gays, in response to the latter question...)
(By the way more Dr Who reviews are on their way!)
