I’ll miss playing a character that can bounce from A to Z like that and that is the cleverest in the room but also the silliest in the room. You know, just being the Doctor, he’s the Doctor. What a character. Of course there’s always a part of you that goes “I never want to go”. There are no parts like this. I think it’s a good time for me to move on and we’ve got the 50th anniversary. It’s the biggest year in the show’s history and I’m playing the part and I pass it on with a smile to the next guy and say “Good luck, buddy. You’re going to have to work hard”.
