It doesn’t seem like that long ago that we were talking about David Tennant’s departure from “Doctor Who,” but now it appears as though we are talking about the same subject when it comes to Matt Smith.
The newest bit of speculation that he is leaving the show soon (which has been around for a while) comes courtesy of an interview with VH1, where the actor infers that he is ready to pack up and leave the United Kingdom (where the series shoots) in order to pursue work in America:
“I’ve got another year of Doctor Who, but then I’m certainly going to come and give it a shot, come and hang out in LA.”
The BBC would neither confirm or deny the rumors surrounding Smith’s future — the actor is still under contract for 14 more episodes, which are going to start airing next year and wrap up in 2013.
Do you think Smith has done a solid job as the character?
