Matt Smith will play the Doctor for two more years

The first episode of the seventh season of Doctor Who is going to be broadcast later this month, with Matt Smith as the Doctor, so it was pretty much clear that he was going the lead the new series to its glorious end. The good news, as MTV announces, is that he is going to do the same for one more year: Matt Smith has revealed that he will carry on playing Doctor Who until at least 2014.

Digital Spy reports Matt as saying: “It hasn’t been written yet but the idea is as brilliant and as mental as you’d expect from Steven. So there’s a lot to look forward to.

“When Steven was going to pitch the next season to me not long ago, he said, ‘Are you ready to cry?’ ”

Despite his success in the role, he added that the Time Lord’s shoes weren’t necessarily easy to fill.

He said: “If you remember, when I took over, no one thought it would work. I was ‘too young’. David (Tennant) had come from a stellar era. I was unknown.

“For a month or two when I started I was like, ‘This is impossible. I can’t’ — just the pressure of it. Everyone was sort of going, ‘Go on, show us what you’ve got.’ I told myself, ‘If I can get through this I can get through anything’.”

At least until now he did a great job. I hope he is going to keep it in the same manner until the end of the eight series.
