Doctor Who News Matt Interviewed

Published on April 5th, 2013 | by Andrew Reynolds

“Dear Doctor, can I whip out your Sonic Screwdriver…?”

If you happen to be in the habit of writing a shopping list of sexual favours to be performed on/around/on/adjacent to a certain Mr Smith, you might not get the Mr Smith you had in mind.

Doctor Who: The Rings of AkhatenBeing a talented, young, sexy actor, Matt Smith gets a fair share of fan mail but one particularly graphic piece of fan mail received by Matt found its way to his granddad…who responded to it!

Recalling the time his grandfather offered to help him sort through the mountains of fan mail, Matt told The Times Magazine:

The first letter he ever opened… was what he described as ‘very blue’. But he has a wonderful sense of humour, my granddad. So he gets this letter and it opens with, ‘I want to…’ you know… Well, you know, there was sucking and… All that stuff involved. It was pretty graphic.

But anyway, she (the fan who wrote the letter) was about 40 or 50 and asked me to go to her house in Essex, I think it was, and you know, ‘take care’ of all these things that she was describing.

So, as you do, his granddad replied:

My granddad wrote back, ‘Matt isn’t available but I’m his granddad and I am.’

And I must say his Granddad was a sensitive, gentle lover…no, wait. I’ve said too much…

About the Author


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.

      Never realized how loaded certain Who sayings can sound…
      “Traveling backward and forward in the vortex”
      “Reverse the polarity of the neutron (ahem) flow”
      “Affirmative Master!”
      “Feels different this time”
      “Leave the girl, It’s the man I want”
      And my personal favorite:
      “It’s the end…but the moment has been prepared for!”
