Ah love is a many splendored thing but not as splendid as the universe for the Doctor. Any chance ofÂ our favourite Time Lord (take that Drax!)Â settling down in a cottage (hang on…) with his best girly by his side have been cruely crushed by Matt Smith.
They’ll be no honeymoon from the universe it seems as Smith told the Radio Times the Doctor is “too much of a space bachelor” to ever give up the life of a time lord.
“The universe is his mistress and he’s not going to give her up for anyone! He finds marriage all rather peculiar, I have to say. To him, spending his whole life with someone is an alien concept.”
We’ve seen his reaction to a ‘forward’ Amy Pond and we know the speculation that at some point in his past/future/alternate life he gets hitched to River Song but Smith is still adamant that the love between them won’t go any further than mild flirtation.
“The Doctor gets to flirt, he just doesn’t get all the rubbish stuff. He doesn’t have to clean up!
Maybe The Doctor will pack it all in and go and live in a shack with River, but I can’t see it. I think he’s always going to have the element of a mad man with a box, which I really like.”
The Impossible Astronaut airs Saturday 23rd April on BBC One in the UK and BBC America in the US.
