Doctor Who thing of the day: has Matt Smith’s departure already been set?

Matt Smith as the Doctor

Will we be looking at a Twelfth Doctor after the show’s 50th anniversary in 2013? Could be. In an interview with Radio Times, Matt Smith hints that his exit from Doctor Who has already been planned. From the Radio Times’ Web site:

Speaking in an interview in the new issue of Radio Times, he told Gareth McLean, “When I finish [Doctor Who], I’ll be…” before checking himself and continuing, “Well, I don’t know how old I’ll be, but by the end of next year I’ll be 29 so…”

Doctor Who series six is about to return from hiatus and Smith has signed up for another series, yet to be filmed and due to air across 2012 and 2013. If the plan he alludes to is true, it would be his last outing as the Time Lord.

So soon? Okay then. Who should be the next Doctor?
