Matt Takes the Slow Path to Hollywood Stardom?

The departing Doctor number Eleven, on the red carpet at the GQ Man of the Year Awards, revealed a refreshingly laid back approach to making it big in his budding movie career.

Speaking to Metro, free newspaper of choice for rail travellers too tight to shell out for one, Matt said:

“I try not to take on any pressure. Take each job as it comes and if it takes me twenty years or thirty years or fifty years, hopefully I will get there in the end.”

This doesn’t quite chime with Metro’s chosen headline of ‘I will crack Hollywood after Doctor Who – even if it takes 50 years’ which suggests a rather more single minded approach, but it shows him to be more grounded than a lot of young stars.

Matt was presenting Noel Gallagher with an ‘icon’ award and was accompanied by his very nicely turned out sister, Laura Jayne. Of his forthcoming departure from the series, Matt said:

“I’ve had a wonderful ride and I enjoyed making the show and I leave it very happily.”

Enough said; what a top bloke.

has watched Doctor Who since those great big spiders did for Jon Pertwee, and it's way too late to stop now.

Currently reading: Frank Skinner interview in DWM. That guy seriously loves this show...

    I shall miss him, though I think his timing is impeccable as he’s going while we still want more of him. However, very much looking forward to what Peter Capaldi will bring to the show.

    Is it just me, or does Laura look like she’s being attacked by a cybermat?

      You mean like , what’s that on her shoulder? Matt saying, “Um, Laura, my hand is around your waist. Don’t look now, but that’s a Cybermat on your shoulder.”
