Smith talks Wives & Series 7
Episode 4 of Doctor Who’s sixth series may be called The Doctor’s Wife, but Matt Smith doesn’t think his Time Lord is the type to settle down.
Smith told the Radio Times: “He’s too much of a space bachelor. The universe is his mistress and he’s not going to give her up for anyone!”
“He finds marriage all rather peculiar, I have to say. To him, spending his whole life with someone is an alien concept. Should he meet the girl of his dreams and they travel around together? Naaah! He wants to keep them coming. He loves the attention of a beautiful young lady on his arm. The Doctor gets to flirt, he just doesn’t get all the rubbish stuff. He doesn’t have to clean up!”
What about River Song (Alex Kingston)?
“Maybe The Doctor will pack it all in and go and live in a shack with River, but I can’t see it. I think he’s always going to have the element of a mad man with a box, which I really like.”
Asked about returning next year for Series 7, he says: “I would hope that this year wouldn’t be my last, but you don’t know. I would like to do next year as well, I think. But these matters are unto the gods!’
