Favourite teacher?

My drama teacher Jerry Hardingham at NSB because he had a really significant part in my life. I didn’t bother turning up to rehearsals or an audition for a play once when I was in year nine or 10 for some strange reason and thought I had missed my opportunity. I don’t think I was very reliable at the time but he still cast me in that play. He took a chance on me and gave me lots of opportunities and guidance.

I’m very aware of the rich history of Chris and David, and I’ve gone back and watched a lot of those episodes. And the previous history? I have to be honest, I can’t claim to have watched the show in its entirety or have been a follower as avidly as some people are - and that’s what I’m realising, that people love this show, people are avid, avid fans of it, and know it, and know its history and are part of it. I can’t claim to know it as well as that, but I’m going to make it my business to do so, and fall into it in as much depth as I possibly can.

The fans of “Doctor Who” around the world are unlike any other; they dress up, shout louder, know more about the history of the show (and speculate more about the future of the show) in a way that I’ve never seen before, your dedication is truly remarkable. Thank you so very much for supporting my incarnation of the Time Lord, number Eleven, who I might add is not done yet, I’m back for the 50th anniversary and the Christmas special!

[A fan asked Matt Smith if he has any plans to share his “Doctor Who” episodes with his children at some point down the line]

“I need to find a woman first before I have any kids. If and when I have kids I will be far too lame not to show them, I’m sure. And it’s a cool kids show, so I would. I’m sure. That’s the most bizarre question I’ve been asked in a few days — which is good, I like it.”

“Doctor Who” has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke, and that largely is down to the cast, crew and fans of the show. I’m incredibly grateful to all the cast and crew who work tirelessly every day, to realise all the elements of the show and deliver “Doctor Who” to the audience. Many of them have become good friends and I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the last four years.

“Oh, and there was the top secret, very special, extra readthrough for Episode 10 (I’m talking that up, but what the hell) and Matt came striding in with a GUITAR ON HIS BACK. I have honestly never seen a whole roomful of people flatten themselves against a wall with such a high-pitched squeal of terror. Except Karen, of course, who trotted along behind him without a care in the world. Oh, the horror as the Doctor spun and chatted and coffeed a series of delighted women. How that guitar arced and scythed! Swish! Get down, Karen! Swish! Karen, save yourself! Swish! Not her face, Matt, NOT HER FACE!! Ah, the memories. You know, to this day I’m not sure if Matt knew he had a guitar on his back - he might just have collided with a musician”.

“I think that every artistic venture is a risk, and it has to be that way, so you do as much preparation as you can and make that as thorough as you can possibly make it, until you turn up on set. It’s about taking risks, and some might work and some might not, but that’s what makes it interesting.”
