Matt Smith Confirms Himself for Series 8 in 2014

via: Doctor Who TV

Matt Smith has confirmed that he will continue to play the Eleventh Doctor in Series 8.

In an interview from Saturday’s edition of The Sun’s TV Magazine, Smith says: “I’m on a break for a couple of months while I’m in Detroit making How To Catch A Monster.”

“We come back and shoot the Christmas special over the summer, then we go on to the next series, which will either start filming at the end of this year or at the start of 2014.”

So there you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth!

Interestingly, back in March The Sun claimed he was leaving at Christmas.

    I had my doubts, at first, but I’ve grown to really like him.

    I think it only took me to the end of the episode.

    Recall thinking he was a bit too young, but by the end of the first episode I thought he had a bit of a Patrick Troughton feel to his doctor, so I already liked him more than I ever did Chistopher Eccleston’s Doctor, who always looked like a neo-Nazi skinhead to me. Now 30 pounds and 4 inches of hair later, Eccleston made a great irascible invisible man in Heroes. 🙂
