The first episode of the seventh season of Doctor Who is going to be broadcast later this month, with Matt Smith as the Doctor, so it was pretty much clear that he was going the lead the new series to its glorious end. The good news, as MTV announces, is that he is going to do the same for one more year:Â Matt SmithÂ has revealed that he will carry on playingÂ Doctor WhoÂ until at least 2014.
Digital SpyÂ reports Matt as saying: â€œIt hasnâ€™t been written yet but the idea is as brilliant and as mental as youâ€™d expect from Steven. So thereâ€™s a lot to look forward to.
â€œWhen Steven was going to pitch the next season to me not long ago, he said, â€˜Are you ready to cry?â€™ â€
Despite his success in the role, he added that the Time Lordâ€™s shoes werenâ€™t necessarily easy to fill.
He said: â€œIf you remember, when I took over, no one thought it would work. I was â€˜too youngâ€™. David (Tennant) had come from a stellar era. I was unknown.
â€œFor a month or two when I started I was like, â€˜This is impossible. I canâ€™tâ€™ â€” just the pressure of it. Everyone was sort of going, â€˜Go on, show us what youâ€™ve got.â€™ I told myself, â€˜If I can get through this I can get through anythingâ€™.â€
At least until now he did a great job. I hope he is going to keep it in the same manner until the end of the eight series.
