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