The Christmas Special, which is an annual episode outside of the normal Doctor Who seasons, will be the last we will see of Matt Smith as the eleventh Doctor. Peter Capaldi was recently announced as the actor chosen to play the Doctor’s twelfth reincarnation.
Matt Smith was recently photographed on set filming for the Christmas Special:
The Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, will air before the Christmas Special and will feature Matt Smith, David Tennant, and a new and evil incarnation Doctor played by John Hurt. This episode will air around the world on November 23rd, 2013, a month ahead of Matt Smith’s final episode, which will air on Christmas day, 2013.
