“Doctor Who” is a series that is constantly at the center of various rumors and reports, so new ones hardly faze us. Yet, there’s something about the latest ones that are at least eye-grabbing, if nothing else.
Per a new report from the Mirror, Matt Smith remains open to returning as the Doctor, a role that brought him worldwide fame. As a matter of fact, he said “They will ask me back one day, won’t they?” at one point last year. As for whether or not it could actually happen, that is up in the air. Executive producer Steven Moffat does claim that Matt is “quite open about how much he misses it, and how much he wishes he hadn’t left,” so there’s at least that.
Now, let us look at this from the standpoint of facts. “Doctor Who” currently has a doctor already in the form of Peter Capaldi; the main mystery there is precisely how long he will remain in the role. There are rumors about him leaving next year, but they are unconfirmed.
What we do know is that Moffat is departing as showrunner next year, and Chris Chibnall. Is he really going to want a repeat Doctor, when he could very easily help to cast his own? To us, the best thing we can really hope for is a guest appearance from Smith similar to David Tennant in the 50th anniversary special. If that happens, it’ll be thrilling enough to satisfy us for some time.
The next chance to see “Doctor Who” is with the Christmas Special, airing later this year.
