BBC Claims Matt “Around for a while yet”

Following concerns that Matt Smith’s casting in a new Hollywood movie could be the first sign of his impending departure, the BBC has told The Mirror that the actor isn’t leaving just yet… Matt with exhibits

It was revealed this week that Matt is playing a lead role in a new Ryan Gosling film (me neither…) called How to Catch a Monster. Although there is nothing firm concerning the scheduling of the production, it seems to be straight after the recording of the 50th anniversary special – raising concerns among fandom of the future of the Eleventh Doctor and the timing of Doctor Who Series 8.

The tabloid paper reports that a BBC spokesperson said:

“As in previous years Matt is taking advantage of a gap in the Doctor Who production schedule to take on another project. It’s the 50th year of Doctor Who and Matt is committed to the show. He will be around for a while yet.”

Of course, how you define “a while yet” is up to you…
