Matt Smith Almost Agreed To 2 More Years Of 'DOCTOR WHO'
In today's case of 'what might have been news', "Doctor Who" showrunner Steven Moffat has revealed that actor Matt Smith almost agreed to two more years playing the good Doctor. Would you have liked to see Smith return or are you eagerly anticipating the next incarnation?
Despite quite a few rumors making waves among its fanbase about who's next in line to play "Doctor Who," there's still a bit more to go in the Matt Smith era. Despite that fact, all eyes are looking forward to the next Time Lord. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly (via Blastr), executive producer Steven Moffat revealed that 2013 was always the end date for Smith according to his initial contract, however, last minute negotiations almost secured Smith for two more years. Said Moffat, "We discussed ages ago that [Matt] would do three series and then he would do the 50th and then he’d do Christmas. That was Plan A for a very, very long while." He continued, "That may sound cold that it was so far in advance but you’ve got to plan a career. [Laughs] The question was, ‘Will I be able to talk him out of it?’ We went out for lunch and he said that he’d come very close to doing another series but it was the same argument: ‘If I do another series, I think I might do two more series, or three more series. I think I might never leave.’"
Rack your brains around that "Doctor Who" fans, Smith almost stayed on for another two years. Are you looking forward to seeing who will be the next Doctor or do you wish Smith had stuck around?
