After four years as the Doctor, Matt Smith will be leaving Doctor Who
at the end of the year.
"It’s been an honour to play this part," Smith told the BBC
, "to follow the legacy of brilliant actors, and helm the TARDIS for a spell with ‘the ginger, the nose and the impossible one’. But when ya gotta go, ya gotta go and Trenzalore calls. Thank you guys."
Now the frenzied speculation begins about who will get the role of the 12th Doctor.
"Of course, this isn’t the end of the story," showrunner Steven Moffat told the BBC, "because now the search begins. Somewhere out there right now - all unknowing, just going about their business - is someone who’s about to become the Doctor. A life is going to change, and Doctor Who will be born all over again! After 50 years, that’s still so exciting!”
