While some Whovians are probably still feeling a little shaken at the news that Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat is leaving the series after Season 10 — while others will be celebrating his departure, I’m sure — what does the Time Lord who heralded the Moffat Era have to say?
While former 11th Doctor Matt Smith was making the press rounds for his upcoming horror movie Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Juliette from the Timey Wimey Show asked the actor to share his thoughts on Moffat’s departure from the BBC series.
As you guys already know, Smith and Moffat share a strong Doctor Who history together. Back in 2010, Smith began his run as the youngest actor yet to play the Doctor, while Moffat took up the keys to the TARDIS from previous showrunner Russell T Davies. Smith and Moffat went on to work together on the BBC series for three seasons and a few specials before Eleven regenerated into 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi, while Moffat stayed on.
Here's what Matt Smith said: “I’m sad he’s leaving Doctor Who, I think he’s done so much for it and so much for me. I just feel very privileged that I got to work with what I think is the greatest writer, one of the greatest writers to have been involved in that show. I can’t wait to see what he does next.”
More Sherlock, perhaps? A girl can dream.
