Happy Birthday, Matt Smith

Today marks the 29th birthday of the youngest actor to play the lead role in Doctor Who, the 11th and current Doctor... Matt Smith. So a big spirited happy birthday wish goes out to Matt who is big spirited himself.

Now I believe he is at the age that Peter Davison was when he took on the role, the previous title holder for youngest actor to play the role in the series. Smith was still 27 when we met and interviewed him in April 2010 which is when I took these photos here of him.

She goes on to mension that she shall not be watching the 5th Series of Sarah Jane Adventures, Saying “I find it just a bit strange. I can’t really watch it, too soon. But I know I’ll enjoy watching them again at some stage. And if I have children it will mean a lot to watch it with them. Mum would have been a wonderful grandma and I feel sad that she won’t get to experience that.”

Death is the Only Answer [VIDEO]

"Death is the Only Answer" is a mini episode produced as a result of a 'Script to Screen' competition geared to children (9 to 11 years old) which you may had seen documented on Doctor Who Confidential. The winning entry resulted in having their script produced into a mini episode which was shown in the finale episode of Doctor Who Confidential on Saturday. This is that mini episode.

End of an Era: Doctor Who Confidential Ends Saturday 1st October.

As of Saturday the 1st of October, Doctor Who Confidential is no more. After six years of coverage of the production of Doctor Who and background information, Confidential comes to an end, but it goes out with a bang, not with a whimper.

As followers of the British Schools Writing Competition should know, Confidential has been following the process and on Saturday it comes to a climax as the finished episode "Death is the Only Answer" is transmitted on Confidential. 

So thank you Doctor Who Confidential for all your information, past and present. You shall be missed.
