Matt Smith Says Thank You And Goodbye To Doctor Who Fans


doctor whoIt seems a lot of fans are finally starting to come to terms with the fact Matt Smith will be departing the TARDIS this Christmas. The search for the new Doctor is on, and it’s anybody’s race to win. We’ve heard from former Doctors, former companions, the current companion, and a few of the show’s writers about Smith‘s departure over the past several weeks. Today Smith himself finally says something about his departure. Yes, he had a statement in BBC‘s official press release when it was announced, but today a video message was released that seems much more sincere and real.

The BBC put out this video Smith shot while in Detroit shooting a new film he stars in for director Ryan Gosling called How To Catch A Monster. Smith recorded a short video message to thank all the fans for their support and to tell them goodbye. We still have the 50th Anniversary and the Christmas Special, but Smith is already half-way out the door. Filming for the Christmas Special will start at the end of August and we’re allegedly getting the announcement about who the next Doctor is shortly before then. Check out the video below. I’ve also included a few set pics of Smith doing a scene for Gosling‘s movie so you can see what he’s up to now. What do you think about Smith‘s message?
