Matt Smith has promised to stay on as Doctor Who for some time yet – as the first show in the latest series of the Time Lord’s adventures was given its premiere.
While the starting date of the new series of the BBC Wales-made show is yet to be confirmed, fans already know the Doctor’s mortal enemy, the Daleks, are to make a return thanks to a dramatic trailer that has been screened over recent days.
The trailer for the new series also reveals glimpses of dinosaurs and an episode set in the Wild West.
The red carpet event at the British Film Institute in London’s South Bank before the screening saw Smith, who plays the Doctor, and Karen Gillan, who plays his sidekick, Amy Pond, swamped with questions about the new series.
Speaking of the Doctor’s legacy in Wales, Smith said: “The Doctor Who Experience is wonderful, and there are certainly more lookalikes around, especially young kids. The attention certainly makes trips to Tesco all the more interesting.”With this series looking likely to be the biggest ever series of Doctor Who, the adventure is certain to continue into 2013 – which will be the 50th anniversary of the show.
And Smith said he would be sticking around in the role for a little while longer.
“I’m not an idiot, I’m not going to leave the show in Doctor Who’s biggest year,” he said.
“I don’t know where this talk of the 2014 contract came from though, I haven’t signed anything new.”
The new episode has twists and turns in high measure and plays with the classic themes famous in the show.
