Fans across this galaxy and one far far away are absolutely ecstatic that Doctor Who lead Matt Smith has reportedly been cast in “a key role” in Star Wars Episode IX.
We don’t yet know whether Smith will play villain or hero, Jedi or Grand Admiral, but fans like writer Neil Gaiman have tweeted that they can’t wait to see him materialise in the next Star Wars instalment.
And overall Whovians are VERY excited about the crossover…
