Matt Could Have Stayed In Doctor Who For Another Year!
Admitting that while the time seemed right for him to move on, Matt also confessed that he found living away from home for much of the year difficult.
It’s a very intense process to play the Doctor. The line-learning is really hard and you have to live away from home for 10 months a year.
We’ll never know, of course, how Matt’s extended time as the Doctor might have played out (just as we’ll never know how the Tenth Doctor might have been had he survived The End of Time and met Amy Pond). We can at least be sure that he’s proud of his work on Doctor Who.
It is a huge honour to be the incumbent Time Lord, as it were, and something of which I am very proud… It is a great time to be part of it – and I know that Peter Capaldi is going to be a wonderful Doctor. I really do.
Matt Smith’s final appearance as the Doctor in The Time of the Doctor is set to be aired over Christmas on BBC One, an episode that will also herald the arrival of his successor – and we can’t wait!
