Matt Smith Keen for Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special to be shot in 3D

The BBC One sci-fi show will celebrate its 50th birthday in November 2013 and Matt Smith claims that he hopes to be a part of it, coming up with the idea of potentially shooting a one-off special in 3D.

He told Bang: ‘I love making Doctor Who and I get to be part of that 50th year which they’ll do something mental for. You know it will be brilliant.

‘I’m interested in all the 3-D stuff. If it could be filmed for 3-D TV that would be fun, especially with ‘Doctor Who’, but it’s very expensive. I don’t know how they’d do it.’

Much confusion has surrounded the next Doctor Who series, which may be screened in two parts over 2012 and 2013.

Matt Smith is confident that he will be a part of the show whatever happens however, saying: ‘For me, it’s just that I know that I’m going to shoot 14 episodes, of which I’ll be in all of them. How they’ll actually schedule it, I don’t know. But all I know is that we start in February.’

The ‘Doctor Who’ actor spends the festive season with his family and, much to the unhappiness of his mum, he enjoys making one of his favourite culinary treats with the remains of his roast turkey.
He said: “Make turkey soup with the leftovers. Bones, the whole lot, in a big old pot. Turkey soup is amazing.
“But it does make the house smell, so my mum complains. Me and my dad campaign for it every year.”
Matt admits he and his family stick to the same traditions every Christmas – including buying a present they know his grandfather will hate.
He explained: “I wake up in the morning. Have breakfast – a lovely breakfast with all the family. Then we all open out presents.
“We buy my granddad a dressing gown every year because we know he hates them. That’s the family joke and it’s very funny. He gets one every year and he’s like, ‘Oh right, another dressing gown, bloody hell.’ and laughs his head off.
“My mates normally come over and this year we all get to watch ‘Doctor Who’.”
