Dr. Who's Matt Smith to Play Gay in UK TV Movie

Evidently this is old new, but it's new news to me. Matt Smith, star of the iconic British Sci-Fi television series Doctor Who, is slated to star in a titillating new docu-drama focusing on the life of British author, Christopher Isherwood; titled Christopher and His Kind. writes:

Doctor Who star Matt Smith is set to play gay author Christopher Isherwood in a television adaptation of the writer’s autobiography, Christopher And His Kind. Written by playwright Kevin Elyot and directed by Geoffrey Sax, the one-off drama chronicles the formative years of Isherwood and also stars Lindsay Duncan, Imogen Poots, Toby Jones and Burberry model Douglas Booth. 
The drama tells the story of Isherwood’s escape from repressive 1930s England and his suffocating relationship with his mother to the decadent world of Berlin, and his struggles to save his companion, a German man named Heinz, from the Nazis.  It is due to be screened on BBC 2 within the next few months.

I can't wait to see Matt Smith stretch in theatrical muscles and play for our team for a bit. His asexual depiction of the Doctor is a refreshing change from Tennant's frequently (hetero)sexualized version, but I am hankering to see Smith get his twink on!

That movie sounds super depressing but I'd like to see it. He's really good. Also, "Imogen Poots" is totally mystifying. If it's her stage name, why would she choose it, and if it's her real name, why would she keep it?!
