Tell that to casting .. besides if that were the case, why have each incarnation become seemingly younger .. Don't mistake me for a naive Tennant Doctor worshiper. I appreciate his relationship with Rose, I'm the first to admitt it, but I'm not ignorant.

Matt Smith might do wonders, but I wash my hands of the show.

Nobody will be as brilliant as Tom Baker ever was.

There's not really a trend there. Once you take out Hartnell (55) and Smith (27), all the Doctors have been in their 30s or 40s.

ObTeenyNitpick: I believe Davison started just before he turned 30, didn't he?

Ooh, pedantry! : )

I can't believe I just went and checked this. Peter Davison recorded the regeneration scene in "Logopolis, part 4" on 24 January 1981. He turned 30 on 13 April 1981. So yes, he was indeed only 29. For about 12 seconds of screentime. : )

The story I heard was that they were actually looking for an older actor this time, but Matt's audition was so good that they couldn't not choose him just because he was younger than what they were looking for.
