matt smith on set bbcWith all the buzz surrounding tonight's U.S. premiere of Torchwood: Children of Earth, I didn't really expect to hear anything new from the Doctor Who camp. But The BBC has just released the first images of the new Doctor, Matt Smith, in costume filming scenes for his debut.

The photos show Smith accompanied by Karen Gillan, the actress playing the Doctor's new companion, Anna Pond.

I'm digging the Doctor's new clean-cut schoolteacher garb. Pond's sweater-skirt-and-sneakers combo makes me think these two will have a teacher-student type relationship once the new series premieres on BBC in 2010.
