British tabloid says Matt Smith plans to leave Doctor Who

Another unreliable source is saying that Matt Smith may already be on his way out as the new Doctor Who. First U.K. bookies lowered the odds of Smith sticking with the show, and now the British tabloid The Sun says Smith wants to leave the show after he completes filming his second series as the Doctor.

MATT SMITH is ready to quit as Doctor Who as early as next year - to crack Hollywood. And he certainly looks relaxed about his future, judging by his happy demeanour alongside 21-year-old model girlfriend Daisy Lowe.

Matt, 27, has told pals he wants to go after just two series of the BBC1 sci-fi show so he can try his hand at movies. The actor is currently filming this year's Christmas special with Karen Gillan, who plays his sidekick Amy Pond, and opera star Katherine Jenkins.

He will then go straight into production on the new series, which will air next year.
But a pal said: "Matt plans to quit after the next series.

"He is eager to try new things and thinks Hollywood beckons."

Also according to The Sun, the BBC has nothing to say about Smith's role in the show beyond the second series:

The BBC said: "Matt is filming the Christmas special and then goes on to film the second series.

"Beyond that, the BBC and Matt won't speculate on things."

On the other hand, Matt has been quoted numerous times saying he loves the role and would like to continue with it for a long time, so hopefully for Who fans these are just rumors.
