We love Matt Smith as the latest Doctor Who. But what does the guy he replaced as Time Lord think about the job he's doing? Turns out David Tennant loves Smith just as much as we do.

In an interview with The List, Tennant said:

"Genuinely, I think it's been brilliant. I've loved every second of it. It's a thrill for me to be watching as a viewer again. I knew Matt was going to be fantastic and he is. He's a great choice and he's knocked it out of the park."

Tennant also stated he had no regrets about moving on.

"It felt right to pass the baton on and for it to continue to thrive," he said. "I think that was all exactly as I would wish it to be."
