That's really not at all true, or neither one of them would have signed up at all. I'm sad that Smith is leaving at the end of the year, but he's never given the impression that he "didn't want to be there." The reality is that, as an actor, his earning potential is much higher in the US and he'd be a fool not to try and capitalize on his success in Who. I hope he does well.
I know, I know, and yes, you're right, but it's still how I feel, and hey, sue me, but Matt Smith leaving the show means that I'm no longer excited about the anniversary special.

I feel the same way. It kind of feels like a dark cloud has moved over the proverbial sunny afternoon picnic. Sometimes there is a downside to serialized television and it's that you get used to seeing the same actor or actors week after week. So when something changes, it can be very unsettling. However, I felt the same way when Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant left the show. I have no doubt who ever follows Matt Smith will be just good if not better.

I totally agree with the above poster. I was always amazed at how he can make himself look old and weary one moment and then young in the next.
That's just because he's got a weird face. All this old man in a young man's body thing is nonsense. I have yet to see an old man flap around like a cretin the way Smudger mugs it up. Just because he'll occasionally go quiet and have a big weird face does not make an old man.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

New actor for The Doctor could be announced next month

http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2013-...ced-next-month

The Twelfth Doctor is expected to first appear on screen at the end of the Christmas special, following the regeneration of Matt Smith’s Doctor.

It would be virtually impossible to keep the identity of the new doctor a secret even if the entire set went into lockdown during filming of the Christmas special, a BBC source told RadioTimes.com.
Moffat potentially staying

A BBC source also moved to squash speculation that showrunner Steven Moffat could also be calling it a day, insisting that he has signed up for at least another year.

Matt Smith is Troughton's Doctor if it was done on ITV.

Well now the cat is out of the bag so too speak, media will be camped outside the DW studios to try and catch a glimpse on the next Doctor.

If the role is cast, then, yes, the BBC is best served by announcing it sooner rather than later. Stay in front of the story, don't let the media ferret it out, and don't have a panic reaction like Saturday's announcement that Matt Smith is leaving.

I don't know if Moffat would try to hold the next Doctor announcement until SDCC or not. I can see arguments both for and against.

Well it would seem rather odd to make the annoucnement outside of the UK. But who knows what will hapen.

Re: Matt Smith's Departure Confirmed.

Before I inevitably analyse the concept of female Doctors...

Moffat's version of Doctor Who in particular, involves heavy sociological topics. He does, however, have a habit of constructing his allegories so overtly subtle as to appear elitist to the, who I'm afraid is only a fraction of viewers, who end up noticing them at all.

Whether you are interested in the current show's sociological side or not, it is undoubtedly a large part of the current show, so I must politely ask everyone here to allow discussion of it on a board with "Doctor Who" in its name, instead of attempting to halt it via social pressure.

The casting of the next lead actor, with it's various aspects involved, seems to be the actual main topic of the thread, so that's what I'd like to be able to discuss in a while, at peace.

I hope my civilisedness isn't causing too much harm.
