Matt Smith Makes A Thank You Video For Doctor Who Cast, Crew And Fans
If you’ve been living under a rock, you may have somehow managed to miss the sad but inevitable news that Matt Smith is leaving the BBC program, Doctor Who, which airs on BBC America in the States. On Friday, the network released a nice video from the show’s main man, which pulls a Love Actually and offers a sincere written thank you to the cast, crew, and fans that have been involved with the show since Smith began appearing as the Eleventh Doctor in 2010.
Skyfall's Rory Kinnear May Be The BBC's Next Doctor Who Star
The race to sign on a brand new doctor for BBC’s series Doctor Who is well underway. Matt Smith, who is the eleventh doctor and who has portrayed the character since 2010, is bowing out after this November’s 50th Anniversary episode. Now, it seems frequent theater actor (and bit player in the James Bond franchise) Rory Kinnear might replace Smith.
Matt Smith Confirmed To Exit Doctor Who At The End Of This Year
It's official. Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who at the end of this year, departing his role as the title character to make way for another actor to fill the Doctor's Tardis when he regenerates. This confirms the rumors that we might be seeing a new Doctor in the near future. And as it happens, the regeneration will take place one year after the Doctor gained his new companion Clara, who was introduced (or technically re-introduced) during the 2012 Christmas special.
Doctor Who Officially Confirmed For Season 8
We’ve known Doctor Who would be returning for a while, thanks to a 50th anniversary special episode the BBC has planned for November 23 of this year. Fans of the series already have that date close to heart, and on Saturday, the U.K. network tossed out some even greater news. Although the order has been expected, BBC officially announced Doctor Who will also be returning for an eighth season on the network.
Is Matt Smith Leaving Doctor Who?
Hearing a report that the lead actor in Doctor Who is poised to exit the series can only mean one thing. The Doctor may be set to regenerate! That in itself is only moderately spoilery, assuming it's true, as it's in the Time Lord's nature to take on a new body and personality from time to time, which means the character is occasionally recast. But for those of you who don't want to know exactly when that's reportedly happening, read no further!
Peter Jackson Names Fee For Directing An Episode Of Doctor Who
Other than writing the TV movie Forgotten Silver, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey director Peter Jackson has not really been part of the TV world. However, the 51-year-old director has been a fan of Doctor Who since around the time of its inception and some months ago, the man mentioned he would be keen to direct an episode of the long-running series. Now, it seems the offer from Jackson still stands, but there may be a fee attached.
Doctor Who Poses With A Dalek, A Cyberman And His New Companion For EW's Latest Issue
It's a good week to be a Doctor Who fan. Not only were we treated to a trailer for the second half of the seventh season, but today we have a look at the two collectible Doctor Who covers for the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. Both feature the series' (current) star Matt Smith, posing with different characters. Fans will have to decide if they prefer the Cybermen or the Daleks?

Doctor Who Series 7.5 Trailer Teases Adventure And Fear
Well, that can't be good! Doctor Who returns for the second half of its seventh series later this month, and will resume the introduction of the Doctor's new companion Clara Oswald (Jenna-Louise Coleman). What's her deal? Clara is something of a mystery, as it was revealed in the 2012 Christmas special (spoilers if you haven't seen it yet!) "The Snowmen" that she died twice. Her first appearance in the series was actually in "Asylum of the Daleks" as Oswin Oswald, in which she presumably died when the prison was destroyed. She's then re-introduced to us as a new character in "The Snowmen."
Orphan Black Sets March Premiere Date
We’ve known Orphan Black will focus on a mysterious cloning project for a while, now. BBC America’s upcoming original series seems a little dark, but it also seems to be a suitable segue for a network that already airs the science fiction drama with a humorous bent Doctor Who and the grimmer Ripper Street. We won’t have much longer to wait to see if Orphan Black will be able to find a niche in the network’s lineup.
Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Biopic Casts David Bradley As William Hartnell
As fans of the very-long-running series likely already know, Doctor Who turns fifty this year, and the occasion is not going uncelebrated on either side of the pond. Today comes word that the role of actor William Hartnell has been cast in the upcoming Doctor Who biopic, An Adventure in Space and Time, being co-produced by BBC Cymru Wales and BBC America. And it just so happens that this actor has actually appeared on Doctor Who recently.
Doctor Who Season 7 To Resume In March
Since the Doctor Who Christmas special introduced the Doctor's new companion and an intriguing new mystery to the science fiction series, fans are likely to be even more eager to know when the series will return for the rest of its seventh season. The date has been announced and it's looking like the Doctor will be back to his time and space traveling adventures in late March, just in time for Easter in fact.
Doctor Who's Billie Piper Says She Isn't Coming Back For The Show's 50th Anniversary
Doctor Who turns fifty this year. The series does anyway. I expect the character's a bit older than that. Regardless, there are things planned to acknowledge the five-decade anniversary, including the recently announced stamps to be made available by Royal Mail over in the U.K., and a 90-minute TV movie set to explore the genesis of the title character.
Doctor Who Stamp Set To Be Available By British Royal Mail This March
You have to figure, it's probably a pretty big deal for any U.K. actor to get the opportunity to play the iconic role of Doctor Who in the beloved and extremely long-running British sci-fi series. But it may be an even bigger honor (if we eliminate the magnitude of the geek factor) to have ones face on an official stamp. Royal Mail and BBC Worldwide are acknowledging Doctor Who's 50th anniversary this year by introducing a set of stamps that feature the faces of the 11 Doctors featured in the series five-decade run.

Doctor Who 2013 Teaser Focuses On The Newly Introduced Mystery
