Matt Smith to leave Doctor Who?

The Sun are at it again. The juvenile people who 'work' for the tabloid 'news'paper are claiming that Matt Smith will be leaving Doctor Who at the end of Series Six.

MATT SMITH is ready to quit as Doctor Who as early as next year - to crack Hollywood.

And he certainly looks relaxed about his future, judging by his happy demeanour alongside 21-year-old model girlfriend Daisy Lowe.

Matt, 27, has told pals he wants to go after just two series of the BBC1 sci-fi show so he can try his hand at movies.

The actor is currently filming this year's Christmas special with Karen Gillan, who plays his sidekick Amy Pond, and opera star Katherine Jenkins.

He will then go straight into production on the new series, which will air next year.

But a pal said: "Matt plans to quit after the next series.

"He is eager to try new things and thinks Hollywood beckons."

His Doctor Who exit would disappoint fans after he made a promising start as David Tennant's successor.

It would also shock BBC bosses, who had hoped that the younger actor would stay longer than the three series that Tennant did.

Matt's first series as the Doctor didn't quite match the ratings of Tennant's stint, with just over seven million tuning in by the end.

The BBC said: "Matt is filming the Christmas special and then goes on to film the second series.

"Beyond that, the BBC and Matt won't speculate on things."

Smith has just filmed a BBC2 drama about gay writer Christopher Isherwood, due to air this year.

It is highly unlikely that Matt Smith will be leaving the show as he has reportedly signed a three year contract.

Furthermore, we all know that The Sun isn't a reliable news source!

Back in 2006, they published this very similar 'story' which claimed that David Tennant would be leaving Doctor Who halfway through Series Four as he had been "bombarded with film offers".
