You might find it twice in a day, you might find it ten times in a day, you might find it fifteen times in a day, you might find it once in a day. It’s the nature of making this show; so much of it moves so quickly, and you just keep trying to prepare as thoroughly and in as much detail that you find the moments of magic. Matt Smith about finding the rhythm of his role in doctor who.


Matt Smith interview for ABC [x]

“It’s been an honour to play this part, to follow the legacy of brilliant actors, and helm the TARDIS for a spell with ‘the ginger, the nose and the impossible one’. But when ya gotta go, ya gotta go and Trenzalore calls. Thank you guys. Matt.”


Thank you, Matt.


Great actors always know when it’s time for the curtain call, so this Christmas prepare for your hearts to break, as we say goodbye to number eleven. Thank you, Matt - bow ties were never cooler. x

  1. Bowtie /baʊ-taɪ/ (plural bowties):
    Piece of fashion that consists of a ribbon of fabric tied around the collar in a symmetrical manner such that the two opposite ends form loops. Bowties are cool.
  2. Fez /fɛz/ (plural fezzes or fezes):
    A felt cap, usually of a red color, having the shape of a truncated cone, and ornamented with a long black tassel, worn by men in Egypt, North Africa and by the Time Lords of Tardis: formerly the national headdress of the Turks. The fez is often considered as cool.
  3. Sonic Screwdriver /ˈsɒnɪk-ˈskruˌdraɪvər/
    (plural sonic screwdrivers)

    Multifunctional tool. Its most common function is that of a lockpick, but can be used to perform other operations such as performing medical scans, remotely controlling other devices and tracking alien life. The light color can be blue, green, red or white depending on the model and the function being used. It doesn’t do wood. Sonic screwdrivers are, without hesitation, cool.


The Eleventh Doctor, 2009-2013

That’s what interests me about The Doctor because, actually, look at the blood on the man’s hands. 900 years, countless very selfish choices, and he’s literally blown planets up. His own race, you know, that’s all on his hands. Which is why I think he has to make silly jokes and wear a fez. Because if he didn’t, he’d hang himself.
