BBC: Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who

Matt Smith

The 2013 Christmas Special will be Matt Smith’s last on Doctor Who, the BBC announced today. Smith, the eleventh and youngest actor to play the role, took over from David Tennant in 2010 and has done 3 seasons of the show – plus the upcoming 50th Anniversary and Christmas specials.

There’s been nothing about who will be cast as the next Doctor, but reports do have both showrunner Steven Moffat and the current companion, Jenna Coleman, staying on.

  1. Nooooooo!

    I know, it s the way of how this goes, but I’m partial to Matt.

    John hurt hopefully is not the next doctor. Just not seeing him in it for long.

  2. Too bad we can’t just keep Matt Smith and dump Moffat. I know that won’t happen, though.
