We'll find out how Matt Smith makes his departure during Christmas Day's 'The Time of the Doctor.'
The time is nigh: current Doctor Who timelord Matt Smith will prepare to meet his maker in Christmas Day's eagerly-anticipated special episode of the BBC sci-fi drama. On December 25th we'll see Smith hand over the sonic screwdriver to new Doctor Peter Capaldi but the technicalities of the change-over are driving Whovians crazy.
