Matt Smith has seen the script for the upcoming 50th anniversary Doctor Who special and he says it delivers. Smith even hints that one of the central questions the show has asked for fifty years may get answered.
“It sort of does what it says on the tin,” Smith tells the UK’s Bingham Mail. “You won’t be disappointed. I think it’s hilarious, I think it’s epic and I think it’s fast, and I’m telling you nothing more – but you will NOT be disappointed. I think it’s going to be the biggest, best, most inventive and most exciting year for the show and I think this script delivers on all those points that you want it to for where the show is at this time, it’s brilliant.”
The news comes on the heels of producer Steven Moffat saying that upcoming eight episode run will answer some questions about the Doctor.
Smith goes so far as to hint that the anniversary special will answer the question of the Doctor’s name.
Looks like it may be a long wait until we find out just what is revealed in November. Until then, we’ve got eight new installments kicking off on March 30 to tide us over.
