When I first read this

 at the Doctor Who On-line News Site, 
 I thought that it was an accounting of the number of pints the 11th Doctor could down in one sitting. No seriously! 

Matt's Guinness Record
News Dated: 16/9/2010

Doctor Who star Matt Smith has materialised in the record books.

The actor is officially recognised as the youngest star to take the role in the new edition of Guinness World Records.

The 2011 book also features another record for his hit show, which is listed as the longest-running science-fiction TV series in the world.

Smith - who made his debut as the Time Lord last year - was just 26 when he filmed his first scenes, three years younger than Peter Davison.

And the show has extended its own record for a lengthy run, after notching up 769 episodes up to June of this year, made up of 212 storylines plus a TV movie.

The last time book bosses included the category, the show had run to 709 episodes and 173 stories. This year, publishers have included a whole section dedicated to Doctor Who records.

I haven't cracked open the world's record book since I was a tiny(er) time I'm in Barnes & Noble, I'll be forced to! By the way, the online news site serves up Whovian info in neat little bytes, a good go-to source for the latest!
