Matt Smith To Star In Doctor Who For Next Two Years

Matt Smith has confirmed that he will carry on playing The Doctor in Doctor Who for the next two years (until 2014), at least.

It has been revealed that executive producer, Steven Moffat convinced him to stay by creating a “brilliant” series.

Speaking about next years episodes, Matt said: “His first episode sounds great. It hasn’t been written yet but the idea is as brilliant and as mental as you’d expect from Steven. So there’s a lot to look forward to.

“When Steven was going to pitch the next season to me not long ago, he said, ‘Are you ready to cry?’ ”

He added that he couldn’t wait to get involved in the shows 50th Anniversary celebrations next year. He said:  
“We want to do 50 years — and everyone that’s been associated with the show — justice. We want to go, ‘Look, world, here is Doctor Who. It’s 50 years old, a science-fiction show, still going and going from strength to strength’.

“Steven will do something brilliant. He’ll do something grand or maybe something very simple but he’ll come to it as a fan.

“He’ll go, ‘What would I want to see?’ ”
