Matt Smith On ‘Friday Night With Jonathan Ross’

Friday Night with Jonathan Ross airs Fridays, 10:00 PM on BBC AMERICA. On the April 2 episode, Jonathan welcomes the star of the new era of Doctor Who, Matt Smith who discusses becoming the Doctor, “My Doctor is clumsy, a little reckless, but becomes more assured as the series develops.” Matt reveals he had to keep the big news of landing the role a secret, “I couldn’t tell anyone for three months,” and says, “To my mind it’s the best part in British TV history.” He also discusses the advice he took from David Tennant, “I spoke to David briefly, he said ‘enjoy the ride’.”

Matt also reveals exclusive details to Jonathan about the legendary TARDIS, “It’s bigger on the inside, has different levels, other rooms including a library and is a different shade of blue outside.” And when asked about his Doctor Who experience, Matt says he’s here to stay – “I hope to do at least another year, it’s a wonderful part and I want to keep it.” And there’s an exclusive sneak preview of the Doctor’s encounter with vampires.

All that plus Emma Thompson, solar scientist Professor Brian Cox and music from British electronic pop duo Goldfrapp. BBC America, Friday, April 2nd, 10:00 PM. Tune in!
