Moffat on Smith’s Regeneration
Steven Moffat has spoken a little about Matt Smith’s final moments as the Doctor and his regeneration into Peter Capaldi.
In the latest issue of DWM, Moffat says: “Pretty soon [Peter] will arrive and he’ll be whisked off to begin the trip of a lifetime, probably wondering what it will be like, where it will take him, and how long it will last. And about then, Matt Smith will be standing in his TARDIS for the very last time, with his eyes on the studio door – because about to step through is a Scottish actor, dressed as him.”
So another regeneration in the TARDIS then, by the sounds of it.
In another recent interview Moffat spoke about Capaldi’s first scene following the regeneration: “It’s utterly bonkers! He still thinks he’s Matt Smith, but he looks like he’s Peter Capaldi. He’s adjusting to who he is. It’s a transitional phase.”
