Ah well, it was bound to happen at some point, but today the BBC offically announced that the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith
, will be leaving Doctor Who
after – well, during, really – the Christmas special. In fact it’s kind of nice that the 50th anniversary special, which is set to air in November, will be including David Tennant
and Billie Piper
. Hopefully that will be a nice closure for those of us who started with the show during the Russell T. Davies
Here’s the press release:

The BBC is today announcing that Matt Smith
is to leave Doctor Who
