The wait is nearly over! Matt Smith will be materialising on BBC TV over the Easter weekend.
I have never seen him before so I don't know what to make of him as an actor. The few clips I have seen of him as the Doctor would seem we are in for more of the Tennant-esque dialogue, which I hope not. I like the Doctor to have different personalities with each actor (e.g. crabby grandfather - Hartnell; dandy - Jon Pertwee).
Needless to say, I will be reviewing the episodes each week; and I have the Ecclestone and Tennant years left to review too.
Former world chess champion Smyslov passed away today. I have been reading the New in Chess book of the Botvinnik-Smyslov world championship matches from 1954, 57 and 58; the games and annotations are terrific.
Woman Grandmaster Anna Sharevich from Belorussia is the most photographed female player on the chess circuit. One thing is certain, though - do not let her sing! I think my chess club should use this song as torture, for punishment of those who lose....
