Matt Smith confirms starring in Doctor Who in 2014



In the most recent issue of Radio Times, Matt Smith has confirmed that he will continue to do Doctor Who in 2014, taking him through the 50th Anniversary Special, 2013 Christmas Special and Series 8, which categorically has proven recent rumors that he would leave in the 50th special to be false.

Are you happy that we will get our 4th series with the 11th Doctor and that no regeneration will take place during the 50th special in November? We certainly are!

So what is Matt staring at?

David Roers said...

He says 'for the next year' - I take that to mean this calendar year; filming the 50th anniversary & Christmas.

Marcus Wilson (on a radio interview I can't remember the name of) said they would like to keep Matt as long as they can, and since nothing has been confirmed either way (assuming you see my point and don't take the RT article as conformation of anything) I'd say they're negotiating his contract, and until they reach an agreement, it may be a bit before it's (really) confirmed.

I think Matt smith is ok it is just the fact that when David tennant regenerated he was all sad about going and crying and then when Matt smith came on he started kissing his leg.... I think Matt smith is to silly to be on Doctor who.... David tennant used to make funny jokes when it was the right time and be sad at sad times now Matt smith just seems silly all the time... I would love to see a new doctor some time either David tennant or someone else... what could happen is Rose (billie piper) turns into it because the doctor says he is running out of regenerations and rose says take my body use it and so he does.... or I would love to see Catherine Tate as the doctor.....

"Doctor Who" frankly felt overwrought when David Tennant was the Doctor. I couldn't have been happier when Tennant's moping and crying was replaced in a flash with Matt Smith being a goofball and being...what's the world? Oh, yes: fun.

YAY! I love all the Doctors, but I like to keep the current ones as long as possible. I was really freaking out there for a little bit, with all those rumors about Matt Smith leaving!

Matt Smith IS The Doctor!

Marcus McClendon said...

I agree with you amen... Some fans find him cute like an american idol... 90 percent of his episodes are earth based research yourself. He is goofy at times to silly. Amy, river and rori made it a soap opera. The good thing is clara. Clever back bone and makes smith look more watchable

Marcus McClendon said...

The ratings disagree with you tennant up. Smith down. Ive bee watching who for decades and smith is not in the top 5

Marcus McClendon said...

Smith will leave sooner or latter... He is not in the top 5 and tge writing has not been good. 90percent on earth check out how many of his have been on earth compared to the others. He has been goofy and silly as a standard part of his role. Rather than an added part. Amy river soap moma and daughter yuck. Some fans think he is cute. No he is one of the 11 doctors not the doctor not even close

Marcus McClendon said...

I agre with you about tennant over smith...

Benjo Davis said...

NO Smith gets it right, he is like Tom Baker mixed with Troughton and thats good, ps Pertwee was more earthbased as he was exiled

Benjo Davis said...

Actually Tennants first series 7.64 million, Smiths 7.73 and the second series being for Tennant 7.54 and Smith 7.51 and for the third series Tennant 8million and Smith is 8 so HA

Benjo Davis said...

And i worked out the average Appreciation index for Eccleston 82.7, Tennant 85 and Smith 88.7

Benjo Davis said...

The soap opera was in RTD era. Not so much in SM era.

C.M. Thompson said...

I don't think I'll miss Matt Smith, honestly. Kind of sad he isn't leaving sooner, but thats fine. I still love the show, it just feels like somethings been missing since he became the Doctor.

Rebecca Burkhead said...

then why did he cut off his hair?

tati said...

the doctor is soooo AWSOOOOME! (also as Matt smith himself)

I love both Tennant and Smith very much. When Ten left I was devastated, and it took me a bit of time to warm up to Eleven. He was so different, but so wonderful that he made me love him. I am glad Smith's staying, I don't want him to go.
