Matt Smith has admitted that part of him regrets leaving the TARDIS.

In the DVD extra for the Christmas special episode, The Time of the Doctor, Smith reveals that part of him would have liked to have stayed in the role for another year.

And the reason? The burgeoning chemistry with co-star Jenna Coleman.

“Part of me genuinely feels that I sort of wish we have had another go at it, another year because, I feel we have really come on and sort of evolved,” he tells the actress in the interview. “We have had a good time making it. It’s been really fun to make it,” he says of the episode.

In the footage Coleman can be seen joking with Smith abut leaving the role. “You dumped me,” she quips.
