who else writes ‘Doctor Who’ fan fiction?

Matt Smith, that’s who:

Matt Smith has apparently revealed he has written his own Doctor Who stories – to help him understand the character.

The 27-year-old, who replaces David Tennant as the Time Lord in the new series starting on April 3, told the Daily Mirror: “I wanted to feel like Doctor Who, understand where he’d come from, so I wrote stories of the Doctor and Einstein in Egypt, which focused on their roles in the creation of the Pyramids.”

He added: “I had six months prep before we began filming so it gave me time to write quite a few stories.”

What a dork.

Actually, that has given me a little more confidence as Matt Smith as the Doctor, if he’s that enthused about it all.

Sadly, I saw on Neil Gaiman’s blog the other day that his Doctor Who episode has been moved to Series 6, so a longer wait for it. Grr.

Yay dorkiness! That certainly makes me a bit more inclined to love this man.

He, Karen Gillan and Steven Moffat are visiting New York on 14 April for a screening of The Eleventh Hour, followed by a Q&A. Details on the BBC America Facebook page. It’s first come, first served, so get in quick!

The Doctor leaned in close, his eyes locked with Einstein’s. The brogue throb of the Tardis was the only sound.

“Doctor,” said Albert with a tinge of lusty anxiousness, “what are you doing?”

The Doctor took Albert’s face in his hands and kissed him on the lips, a brief tickle of moustache. “Something I should have done a long time ago, Albert,” said The Doctor.

Oh, gross. I just puked on my laptop!

That’s pretty damn adorable. Perhaps I can forgive him for being a mere child.

If any of you have livejournal, I did stumble across a “Sense and Sensibility” crossover with “Doctor Who.” I didn’t keep track of where, so I can’t provide a link.

Matt says his stories are “probably quite crap” (then apologises for using “the cr word” on early-evening television).
