Matt Smith Leaving Doctor Who After 7th Season

Doctor Who Logo - 2010 VersionThat sound you’re hearing? Well, its a load of sonic screwdrivers going haywire as Matt Smith is likely departing from the Doctor Who franchise.

In an interview with VH1, Smith confirmed he won’t be sticking with the role past the upcoming 7th series. He’s going to be trying his hand at Hollywood!  “I’ve got another year of Doctor Who,” he said, “but then I’m certainly going to come and give it a shot, come and hang out in LA.”

Are you ready for the 12th Doctor or will you be missing the 11th?

    And we thought he was going to be around for a long time. Hopefully he changes his mind, or at least that the next actor doesn’t treat the show as a way to gain fame in America. Maybe an established actor would be more willing to stick around.
