So, which is it, Matt? This evening’s National Television Awards ceremony has seen Matt Smith take the gong for Best Actor, but after the Doctor Who star took his trophy he was asked about his future on the show…
…and gave conflicting answers.
At one point, Matt announced that he has “no plans to leave” the role of the Time Lord, but later repeated an earlier comment that he had “one more year” on the show (although Hollywood hasn’t come calling yet).
It’s obviously a great night for an actor to be touting for work, but is Matt really leaving in 12 months time? Or is he letting everyone know that his contract is up for renewal and he would be happy to hang around?
We really, REALLY need to know as Doctor Who fans. But at the same time, wouldn’t it be great if the Doctor’s regeneration came as a complete surprise?
Ultimate, we’re bound to find out eventually, but the uncertainty ahead of the 50th anniversary is a little upsetting…
