So, uh. Up until a few months ago I always thought those jokes about British people having bad teeth were just, well, jokes. Then I started watching Doctor Who and happened to see, at around the same time, several British movies/miniseries.
Wow. Total dental fail on all counts.
How these people can be so beautiful and yet not bother to fix their teeth is beyond me. I thought nearly everyone had straight white teeth these days. Almost everyone I personally know does. And these people on these tv shows are ACTORS, whose living somewhat depends upon them looking good. I swear, though, every time anyone on DW opens their mouth I start gawking at their teeth, especially the lower set. It's like the dark ages or something. They really should just hire a show orthodontist to straighten that shit out.
Also David Tennant's nose is crooked and he has a wonky eye.
But it's okay. I still heart him. And think he's totally hot, despite his weird physical awkwardness.
