Matt Smith has filmed his last scenes as the Doctor, as shooting concluded over the weekend for the 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special. The news came in a tweet from producer Marcus Wilson, also leaving the series: “So it’s goodnight from me, and it’s goodnight from him. That’s a wrap. Christmas 2013. Thank you all.” There wasn’t exactly a lot of time to mark the occasion as Matt has gone straight into rehearsals for the role of Patrick Bateman in a musical version of American Psycho. The show will run at London’s Almeida Theatre from December, and tickets apparently sold out almost entirely within hours of his involvement being announced. We don’t have Doctor Who Confidential anymore to capture these moments for us, but surely cameras will have recorded Matt handing over to Peter Capaldi for a behind the scenes feature for a DVD extra or website making-of.

One wonders how Matt would have been feeling on his last day. The memorable Confidential footage of David Tennant’s final day showed him struggling but just about managing to keep it together as he said his goodbyes. Going further back, Elisabeth Sladen recounted in her autobiography how filming the regeneration was a ‘cold affair’, with Jon Pertwee refusing to be in the same room as Tom Baker. Somehow I suspect the Eleventh Doctor would have been rather more upbeat!

BBC America inadvertently revealed a potential time of broadcast for the 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor, when they updated their advance schedules for November online. The (provisional) details indicated that after a week-long celebration of the series, it would premiere on 23rd November at 2:45pm Eastern time, meaning a UK broadcast of the 75-minute special would occupy a prime-time slot at 7:45pm (possibly after Strictly Come Dancing in such a scenario).

However, BBC America have confirmed that the schedule for the week leading up to the anniversary has yet to be finalised, and that the broadcast mentioned above is currently only a 'placeholder' until the BBC lock the exact time down - the BBC themselves are unlikely to confirm such a definite time until much closer to the date (which could be a lead time of just ten days before broadcast!)

As well as episodes and documentaries, other programming planned by BBC America over the course of the week includes: the US premiere of An Adventure in Space and Time (provisionally scheduled for Friday 22nd November at 9:00pm, and not expected to be simulcast with BBC2 in the UK!); Explaining Doctor Who, which UK channel Watch have scheduled for 12th October as part of their Doctor Who Revisited launch day; and other 'talking-head' items including Tales from the TARDIS and a special 15-minute Day of the Doctor Pre-Show (the provisional schedule indicated 7:00pm on the Saturday before a prime-time repeat of the episode).

As noted, all schedules are subject to change.

Possible spoiler for Christmas Special...explaining (partly) where Hurt fits in to the numbering...

...which Doctor is Matt Smith? According to The Moff, the Hurt Regeneration and the interrupted one in "Journey's End" both count...making Matt Smith the 13th and final incarnation...which is where the Xmas Special is going...the game is about to change big time, apparently!

This year’s Doctor Who Christmas special finally has a confirmed title. Yes, Matt Smith’s final story is “The Time of the Doctor,” keeping with the theme we’ve had for the past couple of episodes.

Here’s the BBC synopsis:

Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars. And amongst them – the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.

FOX appear to be the first channel to announce their broadcast of the Christmas adventure The Time of The Doctor, which is due to be seen in Germany at 9:35pm CET on Christmas Day.

In their press release for December highlights, the channel said:

WHO LOVES CHRISTMAS: Das DOCTOR WHO - WEIHNACHTSSPECIAL
14., 21., 24 und 25. Dezember

DOCTOR WHO feiert Weihnachten mit einem besonderen Special. Für Matt Smith ist das zugleich sein letzter Auftritt in der Titelrolle. Vor diesem Weihnachts-Special zeigt euch FOX noch einmal alle Episoden mit Matt. Drei DOCTOR WHO-Staffeln werden innerhalb von drei Tagen gesendet: Staffel fünf beginnt am 14. Dezember ab 12.05 Uhr, Staffel sechs am 21. Dezember ebenfalls ab 12.05 Uhr und Staffel sieben ist geteilt auf den Heiligabend (ab 17.45 Uhr) und den ersten Feiertag (13.55 Uhr) zu sehen. Direkt im Anschluss folgt das Weihnachtsspecial (21.35 Uhr), das wir euch in deutscher Erstausstrahlung präsentieren.


Doctor Who celebrates Christmas with a Special, which for Matt Smith is also his last appearance in the title role. For this Special, FOX will show all of Matt's episodes. There'll be three Doctor Who "squadrons" within three days: Series 5 begins on 14th December from 12:05, Series 6 on the 21st also from 12:05, and then Series 7 is divided for Christmas Eve (from 17:45) and the first holiday (13:55). This is followed directly by the Christmas Special at 21:35, which we present to you as the German premiere.


The time should not be used as an indication that the UK premiere will be at 8:35pm, as there is no intention to simulcast the festive adventure as with the Anniversary last weekend. The actual broadcast time will certainly be confirmed within the next couple of weeks, as the Radio Times "legendary Christmas double issue" (21 Jan - 3 Jan) is due to be published in limited numbers on 7th December and countrywide from the 9th.

The BBC have confirmed that the world premiere of Matt Smith's final adventure starring as the Doctor, The Time of the Doctor, will be broadcast on BBC One at 7:30pm on Christmas Day. The festive adventure will also herald the much-anticipated debut of Peter Capaldi in the title role.

The Christmas Day line-up sees Doctor Who preceded by a festive episode of Call The Midwife, and evening entertaiment including Eastenders and a Mrs Brown's Boys Christmas Special.

The only other channel to confirm a time so far is FOX in Germany, which will broadcast the episode just over an hour later at 9:35pm CET (8:35pm GMT).
