Matt Smith Teases Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special
Matt Smith has teased some things we can expect from the 50th Anniversary special, that will air later this year.
Speaking to Jonathan Ross on tonight's airing of The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV, Matt began: "I have read the script and Steven is on fine form. It won’t disappoint. It will be undoubtedly the biggest and the best. And it will be one of the most exciting years for the show. With 3D, Steven (Moffat) is so clever. He doesn't just throw things at the screen, I’d get bored then."
The Hints then dropped on the episode: "You might see London. The thing is with Who, you will understand it more when you have seen it, but ‘paintings’ – that is all I am saying. Steven is gonna whup me tomorrow."
Matt Smith then moved on to his future on the show: "I go and I do the anniversary special, then I go away for a bit and then I come back and do the Christmas special.” And Beyond that? "It’s one of those jobs that you have to take year by year, it’s ten months a year, it’s all-consuming. So I don’t think you can plan five or six years ahead, or even two years ahead. It’s a year by year thing and at the moment it’s 2013 and we’ll see what 2014 holds.”
You Can see the full interview and a new preview clip from the series on The Jonathan Ross Show at 9.20pm tonight on ITV.
Matt Smith also talked to Chris Evans on Radio 2 yesterday and had a brief word on the series and the 50th Anniversary. "We start with a monster called the Spoonheads. Imagine if aliens got in your wi-fi, there’s sort of people with Spoonheads, literally. We’ve got an episode on a submarine and Liam Cunningham. We’ve got Diana Rigg playing a sort of witchy old woman in an episode by Mark Gatiss called The Crimson Horror. We’ve got the Cybermen back and monsters old and new. It’s classic old Who really.” Matt Smith also confirmed that Neil Cross' second episode in Series 7B is called The Hider in the House.
On whether any Doctor's will return, Matt finished with "If I told you, I’d have to kill you!”
