There has been a lot of rumors swirling that the expected 50th anniversary super-episode of Doctor Who next year might be Matt Smith’s swan song as the river of the TARDIS…but now the British tabloid The Sun is reporting that Matt Smith has said he’s stay on Doctor Who through 2014, after being convinced by showrunner Steven Moffat having created a “brilliant” series.
Smith said, “It hasn’t been written yet but the idea is as brilliant and as mental as you’d expect from Steven. So there’s a lot to look forward to. When Steven was going to pitch the next season to me not long ago, he said, ‘Are you ready to cry?’”
As for the 50th, he said, ““Steven will do something brilliant. He’ll do something grand or maybe something very simple but he’ll come to it as a fan. He’ll go, ‘What would I want to see?’ ”
Now, I’ll wait for independent confirmation, but it’s a hopeful sign.
