All Matt Smith wants for Christmas is a script for the Fiftieth Anniversary special – that’s when the Eleventh Doctor will find out just what ‘brilliant ideas’ Moffat has been teasing him (and us) all year long.
So excited was Matt to hear just what Moffat has concocted, he arrived an hour late and full of ideas to tease the New Zealand based paper Waikato Times with:
I hope that we mark it in the best way possible and we honour the people that have been in the show before us and we make it as grand and brilliant and inventive and as much an occasion as possible. What that is, I may have an idea, but I can’t tell you I’m afraid.
Naturally the conversation turned towards the big question: Will we see a multi-Doctor story to mark the occasion like other anniversaries before it?
Who knows? I think it’s an exciting idea. Whether it would be possible, or whether it could ever happen I just don’t know, but whatever we can do to mark that 50th anniversary will be spectacular, that much I do know.
