Who Carried The Olympic Torch Better – Patrick Stewart Or Matt Smith? You Decide. [VIDEO]

I can imagine Sir Patrick Stewart giving Matt Smith one of his cheeky Captain Picard grins right now. The Doctor Who star made news a few months ago when he ran in the London Olympic torch relay. Turns out, the X-Men actor also carried the torch through parts of Croydon, South London just yesterday. “Nevermind Jean-Luc Picard. I have attended world premieres of big movies that have not had the excitement and sense of pleasure that people are exhibiting today,” said the 72-year-old Stewart. He also made it a point to tell the press he remembers the London Olympics after World War II. Your move, Time Lord.

    He’s still quite fit, isn’t he? I’ve heard that torch is a beast to carry. Much respect to Sir Patrick!
