In an interview with The Sun’s Saturday TV Magazine the Eleventh Doctor actor, Matt Smith has confirmed that filming on Series 8 will begin between late 2013 and early 2014. The man himself more importantly has also confirmed that HE WILL BE BACK as The Doctor when the show returns after this years Christmas Special. Many of you will have seen early set photos from his first Hollywood role with Matt sporting his shaven head look. He told The Sun:
“I’m on a break for a couple of months while I’m in Detroit making How To Catch A Monster.”
And the news everybody has wanted to hear?
“We come back and shoot the Christmas special over the summer, then we go on to the next series, which will either start filming at the end of this year or at the start of 2014.”
So Smith will be back for more adventures in 2014. I for one am rather pleased!
