Smith: ‘Doctor Prefers Chess to Sex’

Matt Smith has revealed that rather than letting the Queen take his Bishop the Doctor would much rather play chess.

Smith was asked on fingers down the blackboard of your soul, Alan Carr: Chatty Man, whether the Doctor had ever had a night of passion on board the TARDIS , to which he joked:

“No. The Doc’s idea of an orgy is playing chess with an ostrich. His brain doesn’t work in that way. He would find it weird and peculiar. He finds women peculiar. He is quite asexual.”

Well that and the fact that he’s not human which raised the question: does the doctor have a ‘universal adaptor’ or an anatomical Sonic Screwdriver?

The answer to which is: who cares?

Anyway Carr found time to ask Smith about the ‘resting’ of the Daleks and also Matt’s wishes for the 50thAnniversary in 2013 where he hopes to see past doctors like David Tennant, Paul McGann and Christopher Eccleston (as if!) pop their heads around the TARDIS door one last time.

If you’re a glutton for punishment you can view the whole thing on YouTube, or skip to around 27:30 for Matt’s appearance.
