Matt Staying Put?

Appearing on this week’s Graham Norton Show – to be aired on Friday evening – Doctor Who star Matt Smith told the Irish comedian that he doesn’t have any plans to leave the series any time soon.

Despite being sad about the departure of Karen Gillan, Smith was philosophical, noting:

“I’ll miss Karen because she’s my best mate. She’s mad as a box of cats but she’s a firecracker!”

However on the matter of his own future on the show, Matt noted that although one day he would have to leave, there doesn’t seem to be any sign of that happening soon…

“There comes a time when a story reaches its conclusion and the essence of the show is that it constantly reinvents itself. I am very happy to stay. I love it and love making the show.”

It seems that actors playing the Doctor are constantly being tasked with answering questions about their future. Isn’t it time the questions were put to one side for a while?
