ON the April 2nd episode of Friday Night With Jonathan Ross (10:00 p.m. EST/PST on BBC America), Jonathan Ross welcomes the star of the new era of Doctor Who, Matt Smith, who discusses becoming the Doctor. “My Doctor is clumsy, a little reckless, but becomes more assured as the series develops.” Matt reveals that he had to keep the big news of landing the role a secret, “I couldn’t tell anyone for three months,” and says, “To my mind, it’s the best part in British TV history.” The actor also discusses the advice he took from David Tennant (The Tenth Doctor), “I spoke to David briefly and he said, ‘Enjoy the ride.’”
Matt also reveals exclusive details to Jonathan about the legendary TARDIS, “It’s bigger on the inside, has different levels, other rooms including a library, and is a different shade of blue outside.” And when asked about his Doctor Who experience, Matt says he’s here to stay – “I hope to do at least another year; it’s a wonderful part and I want to keep it up.” And there’s an exclusive sneak preview of the Doctor’s encounter with vampires.
