Steven Moffat and Matt Smith on location in New York

Matt Smith: ‘Two More Years’ as the Doctor?

Steven Moffat and Matt Smith on location in New York

Matt Smith has confirmed what many fans had hoped; that he’ll be in piloting the TARDIS until at least 2014 – and he’s also described some of the concepts for Series 8 as ‘brilliant’.

Speaking to Digital Spy (via MTV News) Matt let slip that Steven Moffat has already divulged just what’s happening in the as yet unwritten episodes:

“It hasn’t been written yet but the idea is as brilliant and as mental as you’d expect from Steven. So there’s a lot to look forward to.”

Speaking of things to look forward to Matt has also spoke of the obligation all the Doctor Who crew feel towards making the fiftieth anniversary one to remember:

“We want to do 50 years — and everyone that’s been associated with the show — justice. We want to go, ‘Look, world, here is Doctor Who. It’s 50 years old, a science-fiction show, still going and going from strength to strength’.

Steven will do something brilliant. He’ll do something grand or maybe something very simple but he’ll come to it as a fan. He’ll go, ‘What would I want to see?’ “

Obviously with an end date in mind Matt was also in a reflective mood; commenting on his first few months in the role of the Doctor:

“For a month or two when I started I was like, ‘This is impossible. I can’t’ — just the pressure of it. Everyone was sort of going, ‘Go on, show us what you’ve got.’ I told myself, ‘If I can get through this I can get through anything’.”

Could it be true? Is Matt planning to bow out in 2014? Will this mean the end of an era with Steven Moffat also departing, or might The Grand Moff stay on longer?


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
