Matt Smith says he wants to play The Doctor 'forever'

Matt Smith, if he has his way, isn't going away anytime soon.
The rumors are inevitable. Matt Smith is leaving "Dr. Who" so he can pursue a career in Hollywood. No, he's not leaving until after the 50th anniversary celebration next year. Or a new doctor will be unveiled during the 50th events. Well, let's go straight to the source. In an interview with the Life of Wylie website, there is the following exchange.

Matt…Doctor Who…how long are you staying?

Matt Smith: “Forever. 50 years. I’m loving making it. I think we’ve got one of our strongest seasons yet coming up. I really do. We go into the 50th year all guns blazing. And I’ll be around. So…that’s it, really.”

The comment comes as part of a much longer interview about Smith's latest non-Who project, a BBC1 drama set in post-war England about two unlikely Olympic rowing competitors. Sorry, but give us a one-hour trip aboard the TARDIS any time. Unless, you know, River Song makes an appearance or something.
