Amid rumours and speculation as to the Twelfth Doctor’s costume, the title of the Anniversary Special and the identity of John Hurt, one of the more intriguing developments in recent months is Matt Smith’s hair.
Or the lack of it!
Matt’s recent buzzcut is currently fuelling the suspicion that the Eleventh Doctor may have already filmed his regeneration scene, despite his insistence that he’s in this year’s Christmas Special. Just how will the production team circumnavigate his missing locks?
In a recent interview, Smith explains:
“The coif will be there for the finale in some way, shape, or form, but I think it could be quite funny to have the bald hair. I think you could have, like, that Macaulay Culkin scene in Home Alone when he, like, slaps on the aftershave – I think the Doctor could sort of wake up and be like, ‘Ah!’ I’m sure Steven will come up with something. He’ll come up with something clever.”
Perhaps he’ll shoot his regeneration scene in a wig. He certainly wouldn’t be the first Doctor!
