With speculation rife you can’t blame Matt Smith for wanting to confirm just how long he’ll remain in the role of the Doctor.
So while speaking to the Life of Wylie (via Blastr) about his forthcoming performance in the ‘austerity Olympics’ drama Bert and Dickie Matt share his thought process with us and revealed a little something about how long he’ll be in the role:
“…50 years. I’m loving making it. I think we’ve got one of our strongest seasons yet coming up. I really do. We go into the 50th year all guns blazing. And I’ll be around. So … that’s it, really.”
So it could be forever, fifty years or the end of 2013. I’m glad we cleared that up.
Whatever the outcome of Matt’s deliberations there’s still plenty of time left for more hijinks, more mystery and more drama as the stakes continue to elevate towards ‘the fall of the eleventh’.
So how long do you think Matt will stay in the role beyond Doctor Who’s fiftieth anniversary in 2013?
