BBC Confirms that Matt Smith is Leaving Doctor Who! Who Should Play the Twelfth Doctor?
The Doctor has left the building! BBC has confirmed that Matt Smith, who currently stars on Doctor Who as the series' eleventh doctor, will be stepping down from his lead role later this year. Smith, who described his role on the show as "the most brilliant experience for [him] as an actor and a bloke" will stick around long enough to appear in the upcoming 50th Anniversary episode this November and the annual Christmas special. BBC has yet to announce a replacement Doctor, but rumored favorites for the role are Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint and Homeland's David Harewood... or possibly even a female doctor.
