Gillan: Matt Smith’s Not Leaving
Myth debunking time!Â Whether you hate his guts and want David Tennant back or think he’s the best thing since fish fingers dipped in custard, it seems Matt Smith will be “Doctorin’ the TARDIS” for many years to come!
Smith’s co-star Karen Gillan, who goes by the name of Amy Pond in some show we’ve never heard of called Doctor Who, dismissed the recent tale spinning across computers that suggested Smith would be departing the series following his second season, saying:
“Matt will be sticking around.
“I think those rumours were made up.”
It’s short, it’s sweet, it’s to the point, and it puts to rest any fears of yet another bout of New Doctor Anxiety in the near future similar to what we suffered for the whole of 2009.
Smith and Gillan have been working on the set of the Christmas special lately, along with Katherine Jenkins, Michael Gambon, and presumably Arthur Darvill (unfortunately, very little news of Rory being in the special has surfaced, although Steven Moffat has mentioned the word “honeymoon” when teasing the plot of the episode).

Is Smith a Baker, or a Baker?
Now that we once again have no clue how long we’ll get to keep Matt Smith, for how much time do you think he’ll don the bow tie?Â Will he have the long-lived reign of the Fourth Doctor, or the one of the cut-short stints of the Sixth, Eighth, and Ninth?Â Or will he be somewhere in the middle?Â The comment thread below is a useful place for communicating these thoughts!
