Matt Smith Is Not Done With ‘Doctor Who’ Yet

Last week, Whovians everywhere were shaking in their little blue police boxes thanks to rumors that next year would be Matt Smith‘s final season on Doctor Who. That’s pretty troubling, as he is one of the most popular Doctors on the BBC series to date, but thankfully Matt will be traveling time and space for a little longer. ‘Cause traveling time and space is cool.

In our previous post about said rumors, Smith told an interviewer that “…I’ve got another year of Doctor Who, but then I’m certainly going to come and give it a shot, come and hang out in LA…”. Needless to say people freaked, could it be that one more year and Matt goes off to hone his acting chops in the good old USA?

Thankfully in a new interview to promote the Doctor Who Series Six DVD set, Smith clarified that he just wanted to visit, not make his trip a permanent stay.

“We work very long hours every day for nine months. The schedule is pretty brutal, but I’d never complain about it. I love playing this role, and I don’t want to give it up anytime soon,” he said.

“I feel very lucky. In the current climate for actors, I’d never say, ‘This is too much’ – quite the opposite, in fact. I’d say, ‘Bring it on’.”

Obviously this settles all the rumors because, as far as Matt is concerned he may be the 11th, but the Doctor is number 1 in his schedule.

A few days ago we here at Nerd Bastards showed off the first promotional image for the second half of Doctor Who series 6. Now the BBC has released a new trailer to show off snippets of episodes 8-13.

“The second half of the series begins with Let’s Kill Hitler, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Richard Senior. And judging from the snippets we’ve seen so far, future adventures will feature Cybermen, the Silence plus the return of River, looking a little different…”

Season 6.2 will air on BBC America August 27 .

We have less then four weeks until the second half of Doctor Who series 6 hits the airwaves, but the first promotional picture has hit the who-niverse. It does turn into a bit of a mindfuck though, with not one, not two but 3 Ponds in one shot. Somebody pinch me.

From left to right we have a Silent, Rory, a Pond, The Doctor, a Pond  and… another Pond? Knowing how smart (and crazy) some Doctor Who fans can be someone will more then likely figure out why this shot takes place in a desert with lightening and a pyramid.
