Collider:What can fans expect from the new season?
SMITH:Well, fans can expect a gut-wrenching, heart-wrenching time, saying goodbye to the Ponds. But, we’ve also got dinosaurs, we’ve got daleks, we’ve got weeping angels and we’ve got New York. It feel, in scale, as big and bold as ever it has. That’s the thing with Who. It’s got to get better, all the time. Hopefully, that’s what we’re doing. Steven Moffat’s in great form, Karen [Gillan] and Arthur [Darvill] are in great form, and there are great directors and great monsters. That gives you a good chance.
“'I'd love to play football now. Everyone at work plays on Tuesdays, but they won't let me. I guess it's the insurance companies and, realistically, if I turn my ankle over and we can't shoot, then we're screwed, aren't we? You just can't. It's a small price to pay.'”—Matt Smith banned from playing football because of Doctor Who
