50th Anniversary Shooting Spring 2013
Matt Smith has revealed that Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary will likely begin filming Spring 2013.
In an interview with the Waikato Times, Smith spoke about the plans so far: “[Steven Moffat] was pitching the 50th anniversary at the end of this series and what everything was going to be about and it was a very exciting meal. No doubt he’ll come up with something brilliant because that’s the sort of man he is…
“I hope that we mark it in the best way possible and we honour the people that have been in the show before us and we make it as grand and brilliant and inventive and as much an occasion as possible. What that is, I may have an idea, but I can’t tell you I’m afraid.’’
Asked about multiple Doctors appearing, Smith said: “Who knows? I think it’s an exciting idea. Whether it would be possible, or whether it could ever happen I just don’t know, but whatever we can do to mark that 50th anniversary will be spectacular, that much I do know.’’
‘‘Nothing’s set in stone. I imagine there will be a script knocking around about Christmas and there we will develop further and shoot it next spring.’’
Smith also denied he is quitting any time soon: ‘‘Shock horror. Everyone leaves eventually people. No I’m not leaving any time soon. You know I am coming back for the 50th anniversary. To suggest I am quitting now is wrong,’’ he said.
