I was scrolling through various entertainment articles when I came across several asking the same question… Could Matt Smith be returning to Doctor Who as The Doctor once more?
If you don’t already know, I am a HUGH Doctor Who fan. I live the Whovian life happily.
SO, when I read this I was both confused and happy at the same time. As most avid watchers of Doctor Who are aware, both Steven Moffat, Doctor Who show-runner, and Peter Capaldi, 12th Doctor, will be making their exit from the show following the next season *rumored*. Steven Moffat’s exit we know is a done deal, but Mr. Capaldi has only mentioned that he will most likely exit after next season, so that is still up in the air.
Whovian’s are always well aware that their current Doctor will eventually make his regeneration exit.
And we will mourn his transition for months and months while we adjust to a New Doctor.
BUT what if the next regeneration was different? What if the 12th Doctor regenerated and the Doctor who emerged from the regeneration energy had the 11th Doctor’s face? How would everyone feel about that?
Well, rumor has it that Matt Smith has expressed numerable times that he would like to come back to Doctor Who. Matt Smith exited the series back in 2013, but according to what I have read he wishes he had not left as soon as he did. I have to agree with him there.
Now, Steven Moffat is the alleged culprit behind these “Matt Smith possibly returning as the Doctor” rumors and all Whovians know better than to fully get our hopes and dreams up when it comes to Moffat Rumors.
BUT, I have to say it would be very interesting to see the 13th Doctor with the 11th Doctor’s face, but he’s not at all like the 11th Doctor.
It’s no secret that Matt Smith’s 11th Doctor is my favorite Doctor, so I would love to see him take up the Sonic once more as the 13th Doctor. Also I would really love to hear him say, “Hello. I’m the Doctor.” once more.
Let me know what you think of this rumor. Do you think it could happen? Do you want to see Matt Smith return as the Doctor? If so, do you want to see him as a new version of the Doctor or see our precious bow tie, fez wearing 11th Doctor? Comment below.
Until next time.
