It seems as though Matt Smith is going to be a very clumsy incarnation of the Doctor; Steven Moffat, the show's new headrunner, has likened him to a 'drunk giraffe,' claiming that he is constantly breaking things.
Speaking to DWM, he said, "He knocks over coffees, falls over, breaks props! When he was first handed the brand new sonic screwdriver on the first day of filming, I turned to Piers [Wenger, executive producer], and I said, 'I'm going to start a book on how long it takes him to break it.'
"And, as I was saying it, the prop man was walking past me with the sonic screwdriver in two bits! I thought, 'He's done it already!'. Straight away, he'd broken it!"
He added: "I described him recently as 'walking like a drunk giraffe,' which has caused him some concern. But he does! Actually, that's true of Karen [Gillan] as well. It's hilarious when the two of them have to do shaky floor acting!"
In an earlier post I did point out that Matt Smith had an exceptionally long neck, so I'm not the only person who thinks this!
