Claire, 12, Dublin, Ireland

"Matt is going to be brill. He is probably in my top five greatest Doctor's. Good luck Matt!"

Tom, 13, Chester, England

"I'm looking forward to Matt, as the new writer and a new Doctor sounds promising. Matt has a good voice for the Doctor, as it isn't too different to David Tennant's."

"I am really excited about the new Doctor Who! Daleks back, Weeping Angels, Vampires and more!"

Jacob, 8, Manchester, England

Isla & Paige, 11, Rochdale, England

"No. We want David Tennant back!"

Jake, 11, Hereford, England

"David Tennant was the best Doctor ever! My mummy bought me DVD's of the other Doctor Who's and Tennant is the best. I don't think anyone can ever be as good, but can't wait to see him try!"

Jayson, 8, Leicester, England

"Matt Smith looks fantastic! As a long time Doctor Who fan I was never keen on David Tennant's Doctor. Steven Moffat is the new head writer which means the show will improve a lot. Russell T Davis changed Doctor Who too much, but Steven Moffat will go back to the basics."

Sam, 12, Norfolk, England

Ibbo, 10, York, England

"Why Matt Smith? I am 100% sure David Tennant is much better!"

Katie, 9, London, England

"I think Matt Smith will be as good as David Tennant because everyone thought David Tennant wasn't as good as Christopher Eccleston but he was."

Dominic, 12, London, England

"Some people aren't?! I'm counting down the days! Don't forget that there's a new writer too, Stephen Moffat, who wrote my favourite episode, Forests of the Dead."

Claire, 12, Dublin, Ireland

"I am looking forward to it and I'm trying not to judge him yet - we have only seen him in the advert and the last few seconds on The End Of Time. So people, wait until the Eleventh Hour and we'll see!"

Ella, 14, England

"I'm so excited."
