Dr Who? Matt Smith who?

As Kat comments on the Times Online:
You know women, or people of colour can be Drs too. Perhaps the people at the BBC don't know this.
The BBC's response is clear.

My hopes are dashed. Again. I fear that the sexy young thinging of the Doctor is an irreversible decline of standards, however the more I read about Matt Smith, the more I think he has interesting acting chops. And I'm kind of getting used to the face.

I remember thinking that Peter Davison, the former youngest doctor ever, was a lot unbelievable but I got over it.. No, actually he still looks like a complete prat. And I also don't think a time lord needs to look wizened and twisted. Let's extend!
