He revealed that:
“You never lose sight of the fact that you’re part of a programme which has been around for a very long time and will doubtless go on for a very long time in the future, long after I’ve stopped playing the Doctor.”
Call The Sun newsdesk; he’s quitting!
The actor has also let slip a few details about the forthcomming episode Death of the Doctor - written by former Who head writer Russell T. Davies.
“There are rumours of the Doctor’s demise, which obviously cause Sarah Jane a great deal of concern and an understandable need to try to help by rushing to his side,” he explained. “It’s drama on a grand scale, with some tense scenes inside a secret base beneath Mount Snowdon.”
The Sarah Jane Adventures begins Monday, October 11th on BBC One.
