Appearing in this Saturday’s TV Magazine supplement in The Sun, Doctor Who star Matt Smith confirms that he will be back for Series 8.
Speculation had been mounting that he would be leaving during the Christmas special, but the actor reveals that he will be back for filming of the next full run of episodes.
I’m on a break for a couple of months while I’m in Detroit making How To Catch A Monster.
We come back and shoot the Christmas special over the summer, then we go on to the next series, which will either start filming at the end of this year or at the start of 2014.
Of course, what Matt doesn’t tell us is how much of Series 8 he will be in. Fingers crossed for all of it…
The quotes are part of a longer interview which also features Jenna-Louise Coleman.
