‘Let’s Kill Hitler is Best Doctor Who Episode Yet’ Says Matt Smith

Matt Smith has revealed that the upcoming new episode of Doctor Who, which pits the cult hero against Der Fuhrer, is his favourite so far.

“I think ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’ is maybe my favourite episode to date,” said the current TARDIS dweller. “It just rockets along.”

The second half of series 6 of the sci-fi show is due to air later this month, featuring a “really cool robot villain” according to Smith’s co-star Karen Gillan.

“It goes back in time and fixes people that have done [something] wrong in history,” she explained.

There was also good news for those of us who were slightly confused about the abrupt end to the first half of the series, with Smith promising fans that all the mysteries will be resolved in future episodes.

“We’ve still got to understand just what happened to the Doctor in episode one,” he explained. “Steven Moffat has always delivered the payoff to all these revelations, in a way that is exactly what you would want it to be. It doesn’t disappoint.”

Last week, the current Doctor revealed he wanted to film a future episode with previous incarnations of the time traveller in celebration of the show’s 50th Anniversary in 2013.

“That’s still over a year away but I’d love for it to happen,” he mused. “How amazing would it be to see Tom Baker? Can you imagine just seeing him back in the scarf, man? That would be amazing.”

He continued: “Paul McGann is a great actor, man, and a great Doctor. I say bring back Chris Eccleston and Dave Tennant, too! How many Doctors can we get into one story? Imagine if there were five or six of us in one ep and we could all just look at each other and judge each other.”

Torchwood’s John Barrowman also expressed an interest to appear aside the Doctor for the anniversary in an interview with OTB. In the words of Matt Smith: Exciting stuff, man.
