Matt Smith joined the “Brave New Warriors” panel with Kit Harington, Tyler Posey & Steven Yeun this year at SDCC, but the questions regarding his Doctor Who exit were inevitable and Matt was able to take the time to explain more about it to the fandom directly.
Smith started by saying “When you’ve gotta go, you’ve gotta go… It’s sad I’m going to miss you and I’m going to miss Comic-Con too. Comic-Con is great, isn’t it?”
Personally, I think we’ll see Matt at SDCC again. Something tells me that, while his time as the Doctor is ending, he’s just as addicted to Comic-Con as the rest of us.
He did go on to explain more about his exit, and that he will likely be forgotten in time, which resulted in groans of sadness from the attendees. Check out the video after the break.
