Matt Smith announced his departure from Doctor Who via an official statement, but here he offers something a bit more personal to the fans and crew.

After a long day of shooting How To Catch A Monster, the freshly shorn Smith took some time to quietly thank everyone, his fellow cast members, the crew, and especially the fans, for his time as the Eleventh Doctor. Of course, we'll be Smith's Doctor a few more times come fall before he regenerates.
