    somewhere on the web it said he won’t be doing the same stuff as he is now when he is 40 and now he’s only 29 so think about it he could be here on doctor who- the best show ever, for a very long time beating tom baker’s long reign as the doctor besides matt smith is too good and too cute to leave now or in 2013 after the 50th anniversary

    I’m DoctorWho2011 and what I found for Episode 8 (Let’s Kill Hitler) Is BIG NEWS!!!

    In the desperate search for Melody Pond, the TARDIS crash lands in 1930s Berlin, bringing the Doctor face to face with the greatest war criminal in the Universe. And Hitler. The Doctor must teach his adversaries that time travel has responsibilities – and in so doing, learns a harsh lesson in the cruellest warfare of all…

    • Who?

      June 15th, 2011 - 10:30am

      There’s a 200 year gap between the current doctor and the future doctor who dies anyway, so (apart from the fact that killing him would be rather a boring way of resolving that story!) he’d have another 200 years to keep entertaining us if they did.

    Does that mean he’s ONLY doing 14 more eps. or its definite that he will and he might do more too?

    • booboo

      June 13th, 2011 - 8:32pm

      14 have defiantly been commissioned – beyond that its up to the BBC

    • The Spaceman

      June 14th, 2011 - 9:45pm

      I have heard today that the BBC are not doing a full series! :S

  • somerandom

    June 12th, 2011 - 7:20am

    The BBBC have to be careful now, the doctor only gets 12 regenerations, so there can only be 13 doctors. Unless they use some deus ex machina to negate that, there will only be twodoctors after Matt :O
    But I heard somewhere that Matt will be around until 2015 o_O but that was when he got chosen to be Doctor, it could have changed…

    • Mels

      June 13th, 2011 - 9:12am

      It’s been said that the Doctor now has unlimited regenerations (although this has never been mentioned in the show).

      Here’s a link:

      In SJA RTD put in the script that the Doctor had 500-something regenerations, which is odd, but there you go.

      The Master was given extra regenerations at some point if I recall too, so yeah… don’t worry, the BBC won’t stop Doctor Who at 13 if the show is still going well. Even if they do stick with the original ’12 regenerations only’ idea, they’ll find a way around it.

    • JORDAN

      June 26th, 2011 - 8:44am

      13 regenerations mel!

  • DoctorWho2011 – Confimed Epic12 – Epic13 is a 2 part

    June 11th, 2011 - 8:06pm

    WRONG everybody I have found out that episode 12 and episode 13 is a two part adventure

      Hi I have miss Dr Who,heard news about it all,I just hope they will sort it all out soon,so we can have Dr Who back tv,either for full series or half,as I don’t want it to end up like it did in 1989,when it stop and then it came back on 2005/2006,as I love it chose who played the dr.

  • Supreme dalek

    June 10th, 2011 - 6:28pm

    if he leaves in 2013 he would of done 4 series like david tennant

    • DoctorWho2011

      June 11th, 2011 - 6:50am

      He only did 3 series (series 2/series 3/series 4) so he did 3 years in doctor who matt is doing 4 series so he would be doing series 7 and series 8

    • Anonymous

      June 11th, 2011 - 9:10pm

      David Tennant did four years (not three) although those four years only consisted of three series.

    • DoctorWho2011

      June 12th, 2011 - 11:57am

      What I meant 4 years and 3 series

    • Dalek Sec

      June 12th, 2011 - 12:26pm

      If he did! It could be a good ending to Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary! Still i don’t want him to leave, just like i didn’t want Tennant, Christopher, McCoy, Baker or Pertwee to leave! But anyway another lovable Doctor-like Doctor would take his place!

  • DoctorWho2011

    June 10th, 2011 - 4:01pm

    Ok I hope I’m getting this right this time 14 episodes in series 6 and a Christmas Speical

    (is it right)

  • Mels

    June 10th, 2011 - 2:31pm

    There’s quite a few reports that Matt has a 5 year contract… 3 years + an optional 2, although I have no doubt the contract is conditional on ratings and whatnot. Hopefully he will stick around for the entire 5… or more. Someone needs to beat Tom Baker’s record. :p

    The only person who could replace Matt atm would be Cumberbatch imo:

    Although I’m hoping things stay as they are! We’ve barely gotten to know the 11th Doctor… there’s still so much to tell.

    Has anyone heard how long The Moff plans to continue with Doctor Who?

  • DrWhoTwins

    June 9th, 2011 - 8:03pm

    Brilliant news! Matt Smith makes such a wonderful Doctor! 😀

  • dalek scientist

    June 9th, 2011 - 4:29pm

    I want matt smith to last until 2013 so he’s here for the 50th anniversairy special


      June 25th, 2011 - 3:26pm

      He will, he’s signed a 3 year deal (staring in 2010), but this might be extended if matt smith wants to play the doctor past the 50th anniversairy.

  • whofan4ever

    June 9th, 2011 - 3:27pm

    i know its confirmed but matt himself said he is here until 2013 for 50th anniversary


    June 8th, 2011 - 10:49pm

    Dr who to return. Matt smith is coming back with his tweeds and bow ties. But i am not happy about steven moffat returning. sorry. But i think we need some one clever but not to clever like mr moffat. I personly want neil gaiman. I know he’s clever but he has a real talent with writeing. He is wicked. I loved the doctor’s wife. I want suranne jones as the frist female dr.

    June 8th, 2011 - 8:17am

    i hope this 14 eps is not the last of matt smith he is cool

    • Hector Sadler

      June 8th, 2011 - 9:20am

      I agree Matt Smith is cool. I can’t to see more Dr Who adventures with him.

    • gary

      June 8th, 2011 - 4:18pm

      Yeh I want to see if he can beat tom baker’s record!! At the very least I think he should do 5 years. He’s only young – he can do loads!!!!

  • Mels

    June 8th, 2011 - 5:40am

    When Matt first signed up it was reported he had a five year contract… (search around the ‘net, it’s there) hopefully that’s true since I really don’t want him to leave!

    The only way I could be ‘happy’ with Matt leaving is if Benedict Cumberbatch takes over… that would make me ‘happy-sad’. (He could use his natural hair colour and finally have a ginger…ish Doctor :p)

    I hope Matt/Mofatt stick around for more than another 14 eps. 😀

    • Anonymous

      June 8th, 2011 - 4:28pm

      He’s already confirmed that he is on a year by year basis, no “five year contract” also Benedict Cumberbatch does not want to play the Doctor, he does not like the filming arrangements.
