'DOCTOR Who bosses are lining up Matt Smiths exit for Christmas when he will regenerate into the 12th Time Lord.
Insiders say the festive special will be Matts last outing as The Doctor, after a triumphant four years in the role.
The actor has made no bones about his ambition to crack Hollywood and has filmed new movie How To Catch A Monster with Ryan Gosling, which is released next year.
Sources say bosses already have an idea of who they want to replace him, with work on the special due to get under way later in the year.
Matts contract is understood to expire in November but we understand he doesnt want it renewed.
Filming on the 50th anniversary episode, airing in November, will begin next month.'

NOOOOOOOOO! First AMY....
I have never even really seen this Doctor.
Is he any good?
Eccleston and Tennant were excellent.
I really liked Eccleston.
Smith took a while to get into the role. By his second season and since, he has become quite good.
Not really. He’s just okay.
I agree that Eccleston and Tennant were excellent. It would be great if they would bring back Eccleston.
I do not have BBC so I have not seen the progression.
I liked Eccleston in that he seemed to be a bit “common” in his demeanor.
Like a reg’lar guy.
Once they regenerate, that is it.
Or is it?
Should I know?
That is it...mostly. Occasionally, the actors will return for a one off or a special of some kind.
I agree that 9 and 10 were more satisfying than 11, but I don’t blame Matt Smith. I think he’s a fine actor (too) and just had less consistently-interesting stories given to him.
I think 9 (Eccleston) is massively underrated.
It is the most beloved British Scifi show ever, and predates Star Trek.
It is often hokey, and often brilliant.
FINALLY! I never liked Matt Smith as The Doctor.
they were supposed to only have 9 regenerations but.... its TV of course
They need to ask David Hewlitt to be the next doctor, he would do it for the love of it!
Was he the Duke of Norfolk in ‘Elizabeth’s?
If so, he looks different with hair.
Duke of Earl? Duke, Duke...
Duck of Death?
