The Sun is having a slow news day again and so have decided to sit one of their monkeys down in front of a typewriter and make something sensational up. As is often the case with the Sun, they have turned their attention to Doctor Who, this time running a story that he plans to quit. It's bollocks! Ignore it.
What they are saying is this:
Matt, 27, has told pals he wants to go after just two series of the BBC1 sci-fi show so he can try his hand at movies.
The actor is currently filming this year's Christmas special with Karen Gillan, who plays his sidekick Amy Pond, and opera star Katherine Jenkins.
He will then go straight into production on the new series, which will air next year.
But a pal said: "Matt plans to quit after the next series.
"He is eager to try new things and thinks Hollywood beckons."
His Doctor Who exit would disappoint fans after he made a promising start as David Tennant's successor.
It would also shock BBC bosses, who had hoped that the younger actor would stay longer than the three series that Tennant did.
It's well documented that Matt Smith has signed a three year contract with the BBC, with the possibility to extend beyond, so the chances of Matt just deciding to give up at the end of series 6 just isn't going to happen unless the BBC release him from his contract by basically sacking him. Since planning on series 7 is already underway, you can be sure that you won't be saying hello to a new Doctor next summer. Unless you hear it from the BBC or Matt himself, discard it as rumour.
Matt recently told Digital Spy that he loved playing the Doctor and did not want "to give it up any time soon", quipping that he could continue in the role for "50 million years".
