“Blood on his hands…”

Doctor Who star Matt Smith has given Wired.com an insight into why the Doctor is so intent on travelling on and on through time and space.

With just a few days left before The Eleventh Hour, there continues to be no respite in press coverage – Smith, Karen Gillan and Steven Moffat have all been providing interviews for various mainstream outlets, both print and online.

Smith gives an interesting view, one that has been touched upon by predecessors but never given the same clarity that he brings to the answer.

He builds up the answer too:

“I think the Doctor’s got a lot of blood on his hands… I think if he didn’t travel the universe he’d probably end up hanging himself.

“He’s been doing this for 900 years, he’s seen a lot of people die – he’s let a lot of people die, he’s had to, to save the greater good, and to save the universe…”
