New Who really never fails to elate me. (Actually, since I started watching Four's time on the show, old Who consisitently amazes me too.) But really - Steven Moffat is a genius, no doubt, and with Matt Smith and his Doctor, I'm pretty convinced that everything they put their minds to will turn to gold.
For example, I was surfing the Web and stumbled upon an article on Digital Spy
in which Matt Smith explains a bit about the Doctor, and it is just so... solid, reassuring, affirmative. I don't know. Brilliant, definitely.
"Steven Moffat, who's just the most brilliant writer, told me when I first met him that the interesting thing, the defining thing, about The Doctor is that he never quite knows what's going to come out of his mouth in any given situation."
Smith continued: "His thoughts just combust spontaneously . I've tried to harness the brain-to-mouth rapidity. I mean, you could think about it forever, but how do you play the most charismatic man in the universe? It's a real challenge.
"If you play him constantly charismatic, he instantly loses the charisma. Of course, really charismatic people don't have to do a thing. They just are. I'm still finding my way on that one, but I like to think it gives me something creative to play with."
