Doctor Who - Matt Smith Confirms Series 8

TV Magazine joins Matt on set, we’re thrilled to declare he’s going nowhere just yet.

“I’m on a break for a couple of months while I’m in Detroit making How To Catch A Monster [he plays the lead role in Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut],” explains Matt, who’s played the eleventh incarnation of the Time Lord since 2010.

“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 unless he’s lying through his teeth, fans can look forward to another full series of Matt next year, as well as the bumper treat of the 50th anniversary 3D special, with his much-loved predecessor David Tennant, this November.

Shrugging off rumours that he’s quitting, the actor is good-natured about the speculation.

“People are always going to ask because they care about the show,” says Matt, who admits he’d love to direct an episode of Doctor Who.

“But I take it year by year. And this year is going to be the biggest one in the show’s history.”
