Matt Smith is still the Doctor

Yesterday, at the BFI screening of The Tomb of the Cybermen, Steven Moffat revealed that Matt Smith will be back to work on Doctor Who after his filming stint on How To Catch A Monster. During his introduction of the classic Patrick Troughton story, the current showrunner stated that Matt is "not going" (not leaving the show, that is) and will "be back" after shooting the Ryan Gosling-directed movie.

Smith resumes filming on Doctor Who in April for the 50th Anniversary special, then shoots How To Catch A Monster in May and then returns to the UK to film the 2013 Christmas Special.

(Thanks to +Andrea Laford for letting me know this news yesterday.)

He launched Time and The – ! in 2011 after having the bright (?) idea to watch every Doctor Who story from the beginning and blog about it. (Yeah, he's way behind.)

    So, uh, yay that we're keeping our current Doc, but with him working on the anniversary special and then a movie before the next Christmas special, when the hell does that leave time for him to finish up season 7?!? And it was going pretty badly, so I'm getting kinda antsy for some decent season 7 DW already!! >_<

    I think after he's done with the Christmas special, then they'll start working on season eight.  I think season seven is all wrapped up filming wise.
