Oh, did I say leaving? I meant Matt Smith confirms he’ll be staying on through at least the 2014 season of Doctor Who. Silly me. April Fools.
Anyway, yes, in the latest issue of Radio Times, Smith has confirmed he’ll be The Doctor for 2014, saying, “I’m attached to the show for the next year and I take it year by year. I think that’s the only way you can take it.” Which means he’ll survive through the 50th Anniversary special unlike all those rumors claiming otherwise. Smith will finish Season 7B, star in the anniversary special, the Christmas special, and continue on to Season 8. What’ll happen after that is anyone’s guess as nothing’s been confirmed.
I’m excited to hear Smith is sticking around for another season, are you? Or were you really hoping that headline wasn’t just another April Fools’ joke?
