Okay, there is a rumor (the latest of many) about Smith leaving, but the Beeb's response is noncommittal, that "even we don't know what's going to happen at Christmas." So this is far from a confirmed fact at this point.
They're not really hands-on, are they?
I take it you didn't follow my link. I didn't quote the next line, which explained that they don't know what will happen because it hasn't been written yet. So presumably nobody knows that yet. Somehow the audience always seems to assume that the creators of a work of serial fiction have every move plotted out years in advance, but really they might only have the next few months plotted out at any given time -- heck, the producers of a show would be foolish not to keep their options open and be able to adapt to changing circumstances. Matt Smith himself may not have even decided what career path he's going to follow 9 months or a year from now, because he's busy working on more immediate stuff.
