Regrets & Rumors
The 11th Doctor has been very vocal about his regrets at leaving the series.
Former Time Lord Matt Smith has stuck a sonic screwdriver in the works regarding rumours he’s to return the hit BBC sci-fi favourite Doctor Who.
The 32-year-old actor, who played the Doctor’s 11th incarnation between 2009 and 2013, was the subject of recent whispers which suggested he might be set to return to the Tardis once Peter Capadi had finished his current run in the role.
Smith had recently spoken quite openly about his regret at leaving the programme, while its showrunner Steven Moffat had described his decision to move on as “a tough time”.
He added: “Matt, who was a friend and ally, was leaving. I couldn’t get him to stay. It felt like everything was blowing up around me.”
Sadly for fans of No 11, however, Smith today confirmed in a live blog for The Guardian newspaper that he wouldn’t be coming back.
“Yes I miss it. No, it’s not true,” he said.
“I miss everything. I miss Steven, I miss Karen, I miss Arthur, I miss Jenna. I miss time travelling. And I miss my friends in Cardiff.
“But onward goes the march.
“It’s Peter’s Tardis now. And I love what he does. So I watch as a fan.”
His successor Peter Capaldi has been tipped to bow out after the next series, currently being filmed in South Wales for release in 2017. (Wales Online)
