Doctor New

Do you remember when there was a time when David Tennant ruled the 4th dimension as Dr. Who? No, we can’t either. That’s because Matt Smith’s interpretation of the Timelord is nothing short of excellent.

The 2nd series of Dr. Who, with Matt Smith in the lead is currently on a mid-season summer break, so a BBC exec has taken this apt opportunity to finally put to bed any speculation if he’ll return for a 3rd series. Making the announcement on Twitter Sam Hodges wrote; ‘Doctor Who is returning. Fourteen new episodes have been commissioned with Matt Smith as The Doctor’.

The current series of the good Dr. returns for six episodes this Autumn, with series three kicking-off in 2012. It’s no surprise that a recommission was on the cards – Doctor Who was the top 3 most watched TV of radio programmes on the iPlayer this year.
