It has just come out that the 11th Doctor, played by Matt Smith, will be killed off by the ruthless, emotionless Cybermen in the 2013 Dr. Who Christmas Special. The Doctor has been facing off against the Cybermen since the very beginning of the series back in 1966, and they have become one of the series most notorious villans. They will be the ones who take out the 11th doctor to help make way for recently annoucned 12th Doctor, who will be played by Peter Capaldi.
The annoucement was leaked yesterday by professional stuntwoman Darrelle Parker when she tweeted:
“Great to be stunting again for Doctor Who in the Christmas special playing a Cyberman.”
Matt Smith stated that he believes the ending for the 11th Doctor is a fitting one and is ready to hand the reigns of the TARDIS to Peter Capaldi. Smith’s second to last episode will be the Dr. Who 50th Anniversery Special, which will feature the 10th Doctor, played by David Tennant as well as Rose Tyler played by Billie Piper as returning guest stars – along with John Hurt and Joanna Page. It will air on Saturday, November 23.
Keep an eye out for those Cybermen or you will be UPGRADED!
