Another Matt Smith Leaving Rumour
Here we go again! The Sun are today claiming that Matt Smith has quit Doctor Who and will leave in the 2013 Christmas Special. They cite the usual anonymous “insider” as the source.
The story says:
Insiders say the festive special will be Matt’s last outing as The Doctor, after a triumphant four years in the role.
The actor has made no bones about his ambition to crack Hollywood and has filmed new movie How To Catch A Monster with Ryan Gosling, which is released next year.
Sources say bosses already have an idea of who they want to replace him, with work on the special due to get under way later in the year.
Matt’s contract is understood to expire in November but we understand he doesn’t want it renewed.
Last night, the BBC said in a statement: “Sorry folks but even we don’t know what’s going to happen at Christmas. It’s not been written yet! But Matt loves the show and is to start filming the unmissable 50th anniversary, and the new series starting on Easter Saturday.”
So basically it’s just another rumour to take with plenty of salt!
