Matt Smith on Doctor Who USA

Doctor Who star Matt Smith features in a short interview clip here in which he gives his thoughts on filming in the USA in the future.

The sole 1996 feature length episode of Doctor Who – starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor – was filmed in Vancouver, Canada but set in San Francisco. Meanwhile, establishing shots and some camera only location work were conducted for 2007’s Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks

Pedants among us might like to point out that Doctor Who has already “done” San Francisco on screen, but his Sinatra plot sounds pretty cool.

Alternatively, view the video at BBC America – and don’t forget, The Eleventh Hour kicks off on BBC America next weekend on Saturday, 17th April at 8/9c, preceded by The Ultimate Guide at 7/8c.
