Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith hopes that a future episode will be filmed in 3D.
The Time Lord actor said that the 50th anniversary, which he previously emphasised should be “an event”, could be the perfect opportunity.
Speaking to Bang Showbiz, Smith revealed: “I’m interested in all the 3D stuff. If it could be filmed for 3D TV that would be fun, especially with Doctor Who.
“I love making Doctor Who and I get to be part of that 50th year which they’ll do something mental for. You know it will be brilliant.”
However, Smith admitted that the BBC may not have the budget to screen a 3D special, cautiously adding: “But it’s very expensive. I don’t know how they’d do it.”
The 28-year-old star also admitted that he is unaware of how the next series of Doctor Who will be scheduled.
I have added screencaps from last nights amazing episode.
And a preview clip of next week’s episode.
Matt Smith doesn’t want River Song to become a full-time companion on ‘Doctor Who’ – because she’s the one person who makes The Doctor go “whoa”.
The 28-year-old actor – who plays the titular Time Lord in the sci-fi series – loves shooting scenes with Alex Kingston, who portrays the archaeologist, but he thinks the character would lose her shock value if she become a permanent inhabitant of the TARDIS.
He told BANG Showbiz: “I think River’s too independent to ever be a full-time companion, I think that’s what makes River great as a character. The companions and The Doctor are doing their thing then whoosh in comes the hair!
“It just messes the Doctor up and makes him go, ‘Oh Christ, River’s here,’ and it frightens him. And weirdly he’s going, ‘Why the hell am I attracted to her? What’s that?’ That’s the woman who makes him go whoa.”
Just as he loves the character River, Matt also has nothing but praise for Alex and admits she took him under her wing when he first joined ‘Doctor Who’.
He said: “I love Alex Kingston deeply. She’s just a wonderful actress and a great friend.
After effortlessly proving the doubters and the ‘Doctor Who?’ headlines wrong, Matt Smith is a man in demand. Not that he likes to boast about it, as ShortList’s Jonathan Pile discovers
Matt Smith is a man to envy. His tenure as the Doctor has been universally lauded, he gets to refer to model Daisy Lowe as “my lady” and, as he proves while leaning casually against an Aston Martin — his chosen motor to front our car special — he looks great in a suit.
He’s also one of a group of young Brits (along with the likes of Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and Jim Sturgess) with the potential to conquer the acting world. And with this kind of success comes the obvious perks: a constant blur of exclusive parties in exotic locales, surrounded by beautiful people, with expensive champagne flowing endlessly into crystal goblets. But don’t take our word for it. Let the 28-year-old actor himself revel in his decadent lifestyle.
“I’m up at 6am, work all day, get back at 8pm, prepare for the next day, eat hummus and go to bed. I work nine months of the year, and it’s quite solitary in Cardiff.”
Oh. To be honest, that’s not exactly how we pictured it.
A special one-off mini-episode of Doctor Who is to air on BBC Three.
Earlier this year, the BBC launched a competition for primary school pupils aged 9 to 11 to write a three-minute Who script.
Winning entry ‘Death Is The Only Answer’ has been written by children from Oakley CE Junior School in Basingstoke and will air in the Autumn.
Doctor Who star Matt Smith said: “It was so clever, we were all just bowled over, it was a brilliant script.”
The winning script was chosen by Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat, the show’s executive producers Piers Wenger and Beth Willis, and Controller of BBC Learning, Saul Nassé.
“I loved the shortlisted scripts, there was so much skill and enthusiasm on display that it was actually genuinely, very, very difficult to judge,” said Moffat. “There was some really, really skilled writing. It was very exciting how they caught the voice of The Doctor and how they used the always stringent limitations of Doctor Who to their advantage.”
The mini-episode’s production will be covered in this Saturday’s edition of BBC Three’s behind-the-scenes show Doctor Who Confidential.
Doctor Who returns to BBC One this Saturday at 7.10pm and airs the same day at 9/8c on BBC America. ‘Death Is The Only Answer’ will be broadcast on BBC Three on October 1.
I have added a few more stills from series 6 of Doctor Who.
Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has denied that the show’s episode count has been reduced.
Moffat told The Daily Beast that rumours of cuts to the sci-fi drama are “absolute nonsense”.
“First of all, we are airing in 2012,” he insisted. “The only thing that’s happening is that we’re moving a bit later. There’s lots of reasons for that that will become clear quite soon.”
The writer added that Doctor Who has “never been more successful” and now has a “huge” international profile.
“It is certainly not a reduced episode count,” he reiterated. “Do you think the BBC would really let that happen? With an average audience of 10 million?”
He continued: “You’re not going to reduce a show like this. The opposite is going to happen, in fact.”
Moffat also promised that many of Doctor Who‘s lingering plot threads will be resolved by the end of the current series.
