Matt Quits?

Murdoch tabloid The Sun has printed a story concerning the future of Doctor Who star Matt Smith – suggesting that he may quit the role at the end of his second series.

Doctor Who star Matt SmithSmith has only just come to the end of his first series as the Time Lord – in general, he’s made a great impression, and certainly seems to have worked very hard in the role.

According to the tabloid rumour-rag in question, Matt Smith has a “pal” who has told the paper:

“Matt plans to quit after the next series. He is eager to try new things and thinks Hollywood beckons.”

Whether Hollywood beckons or not, an actor of Matt’s verve and intelligence should know that the leafy suberb in California has little sway over the movie industry these days. Obviously it’s short hand – Smith wants to do more movies.

But does he really want to quit Doctor Who so soon? The article confirms that Smith is committed to a second series, and according to the BBC,

“Matt is filming the Christmas special and then goes on to film the second series. Beyond that, the BBC and Matt won’t speculate on things.”

Here’s hoping that we get at least three series out of Matt Smith.
