Matt Smith really made the infamous character of The Doctor on BBC’s Doctor Who his own when he joined the cast in 2010. He even became the first Doctor to be nominated for a BAFTA. However, as a result of David Tennant stepping down as the Tenth Doctor, there were talks about cancelling the show entirely. Steven Moffat revealed this shocking news at the Hay Festival, saying: “David owned that role in a spectacular way, gave it an all-new cheeky, sexy performance and became a national treasure. And he didn’t do it instantly, he did it over time. So the idea that Doctor Who could go on at all in the absence of David was a huge question.” He then added: “I didn't realise how many people thought it wouldn't succeed at all. That was quite terrifying when I found out about it later.” It was reportedly Davies’ skills of persuasion that kept the show running, despite the fact he was leaving with Tennant, as Moffat explained: “It was Russell T Davies saying, 'You are not allowed to end it'.” If we never got our beloved Eleventh Doctor, Peter Capaldi would never have got his stab at it; and with Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor premiering in August, Whovians are more than grateful that Doctor Who managed to continue past the loss of the much-loved Tenth Doctor.
