    The BBC announced that Matt Smith is leaving the role of Dr Who after the 50th Anniversary episode later this year.

    What is wrong with these brit actors? Haven't they learned from the examples of Chris Eccleston, and David Tennant? Both careers are doing just so well since leaving. What is it about working for the BBC that makes their actors yearn to return to relative obscurity so quickly? Don't they like getting laid anymore?

    I thought either he or the beeb had confirmed that he'd be back for next season? Hearing rumors of a blaek or a woman ,now. Former, I wouldn't really care, latter...no.

    not every two years; he's only supposed to be able to regenerate 12 times. the past 6 years have run him dry.

    why doesnt the BBC take proper care of it's talent? stars of sucessful series here don't leave, at least not until their sentencing hearing.

    It sux hes leaving, some site or paper or something the other day said he was staying through the next season but i guess that was a big fat lie. I know doctor who is about a time lord who can regenerate, im almost 42 and been a fan since i was around 12 so i know change is a big part of it but i still feel bummed out, betrayed and pissed off! Especially after the " hes staying" rumor was so widely circulated. It took a few episodes for matt to grow on me, i dont want him to leave just yet. I guess , though, this is something we who fans must suffer.

    the past 10 years have pretty much established that there is no canon regarding Dr Who anymore: he has sex; he likes girls; he can change history when he thinks its appropriate, etc. River Song donated her remaining regenerations to the Doctor to save his life so he probably has 7 or 8 of hers left. Even in the classic episodes the Master was granted a new regeneration cycle of 12 more lives by the president of the high council of time lords.

    I guess if they bother to explain it at all, they could always claim that by virtue of being the remaining living time lord, the doctor is the high council and can grant himself as many new regeneration cycles as he wishes.
