Matt Smith: “I totally will” be back in Doctor Who

The recently departed Time Lord is aiming to make a return to the show as quickly as possible and fancies being part of another multiple Doctors story


We haven’t even seen a full episode featuring his successor Peter Capaldi, and Matt Smith is already talking about making his Doctor Who comeback…


The star has been in touch with showrunner Steven Moffat asking how long he has to wait and says he’d love to do another multiple Doctors story following the success of 50th anniversary episode The Day of the Doctor, in which he appeared alongside his predecessor David Tennant and newly revealed ‘War Doctor” John Hurt.  

“I’m just waiting for the next anniversary,” Smith told the Calgary Expo. “I spoke to Steven the other day and said ‘what’s the quickest one we can do?’” 

“I love the idea of other Doctors coming back. Also that gives me the opportunity to come back, which I totally will by the way!”

In the meantime, though, Smith has been busy adding more strings to his acting bow, with the lead role in the West End musical adaptation of American Psycho and another apparently equally unhinged part in Ryan Gosling’s controversial movie Lost River.

Peter Capaldi makes his full debut as the Doctor when the series returns to BBC1 this autumn.
