New Doctor Who pic released

Matt Smith as Doctor Who

Doctor Who fans are in for a treat as one of the first photos of Matt Smith in the role has been released.

Matt is pictured with his companion Amy Pond, who's played by actress Karen Gillan. It looks like they're caught up in a swirling time vortex.

And we get a sneaky peak of some of the enemies Matt's Doctor will face in his first series, including the Daleks, the Weeping Angels and a Smiler.

A new trailer will be shown on Saturday 20 February on BBC1.

Matt Smith is the 11th actor to play the Doctor. He replaces David Tennant, who left on New Year's Day.

This series is also the first under new Doctor Who boss Steven Moffat.

He's already written some award-winning episodes of the show, including Blink from series three, and The Empty Child from series one.
