Exciting as it is to have Peter Capaldi taking over the keys to the TARDIS, very few were happy to see Matt Smith's Doctor go. Over his three years, he was tremendous in the role, whatever the material, whoever the co-star.
The good news then, is that Smith hasn't ruled out a return to the show in a multi-Doctor story, far from it in fact. According to the actor, recently seen in the teaser for Ryan Gosling-directed feature Lost River, he's already petitioning showrunner Steven Moffat for a part in the next anniversary special.
Speaking at this year's Calgary Expo, Smith said, "I’m just waiting for the next anniversary. I spoke to Steven the other day and said ‘what’s the quickest one we can do?’”.
He continued, “I love the idea of other Doctors coming back. Also that gives me the opportunity to come back, which I totally will by the way!”.
You couldn't be more welcome, Matt. Now which anniversaries are approaching?
