The BBC have released the first behind-the-scenes image of Matt Smith, taken after the read through of this year's Doctor Who Christmas special, also Smith's final episode as the Eleventh Doctor, read on for further details:
Matt was in brilliant form at the read through for this year’s Christmas Special, written by Steven Moffat. In fact, seeing him back in action as the Doctor made us want to fast forward to November to see the eagerly awaited 50th anniversary special!
As previously reported, after four incredible years aboard the Tardis, the Christmas episode will be Matt’s swansong as the Time Lord. Lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat has previously commented on Matt’s departure, "…great actors always know when it's time for the curtain call, so this Christmas prepare for your hearts to break, as we say goodbye to number Eleven."
But there’s a lot more to come before Matt bows out…
The special is set to air this Christmas on BBC One and BBC One HD, however, Doctor Who returns beforehand for the show's 50th anniversary special in November, also BBC One and BBC One HD.
