Cool. Smith is a pretty good actor, and its unfortunate that he hasn't yet achieved the success in film that his costar Karen Gillan did as Nebula in the Marvel films.

There's a tendency for Doctors to be typecast a bit and take awhile to start showing up in other roles.

Once one has been the Doctor *so* recently, it needs to fade a bit before the work starts flowing again. Also I suspect a lot want a rest after the Who workschedule.

Smith hasn't been idle since he left Doctor Who back in 2013 - he did a part in the last Terminator film and one or two season's of a Netflix show called "The Crown" as Prince Philip. Been meanign to sit and watch that but never got around to it.
Baltar: "I don't want to miss a moment of the last Battlestar's destruction!"
Centurion: "Sir, I really think you should look at the other Battlestar."
Baltar: "What are you babbling about other...it's impossible!"
Centurion: "No. It is a Battlestar."

Corrax Entry 7:17: So you walk eternally through the shadow realms, standing against evil where all others falter. May your thirst for retribution never quench, may the blood on your sword never dry, and may we never need you again.

I haven't watched "The Crown" (my mum's the watch-anything-royal buff of the family, and we don't do Netflix anyway) but I've seen a few clips. At least as far as looks go, he can do a scarily good likeness of HRH in his active Navy days, during and soon after WW2.
