Arthur Darvill has said he has no regrets about leaving Doctor Who - even though it means he won’t be part of the hit show’s 50th anniversary episode this year.
The actor joined the BBC sci-fi series in 2009 as Amy Pond’s boyfriend and later husband, Rory Williams, before leaving last year.
The Time Lord returns to our screens at Easter, but Arthur said that rather than feeling like he is missing out by not being involved any more, he is “quite excited about watching it and seeing what they’ve come up with.”
He added: “Doctor Who is going to follow me around forever. I think once you’re involved with something like that, you’re involved for the rest of your life.”
