Mary Sue confirmed that in order to bypass this technical detail, Matt Smith will wear a wig to film the "Doctor Who" Christmas Special.
"It's been four years. It's been the best four years. It's been wonderful, it's been a privilege to work under Steven Moffat. But I think when you gotta go, you gotta go..." said the Matt Smith.
"It's sad, I'm going to miss it. I'm going to miss Comic-Con as well. It wasn't an easy decision, but I dunno, you can't play it forever. And, look, they'll get someone amazing and brilliant, and that's the great thing about the show. It continues, and it will get bigger and better. And you'll forget about me."
Sadly, Matt Smith will leave after the Christmas Special, but even more devastating, season 8 is not expected to premiere until fall of 2014.
According to the Guardian had this to say on the matter:
"Doctor Who may not be quite the force it was when it returned with Christopher Eccleston and in its David Tennant heyday in the UK, but has a growing audience in the US on cable channel BBC America."
"It will not return next year until the autumn, giving it plenty of time to recharge batteries. And what better way to do that than with a new Doctor?"
