Doctor Who: Matt Smith rushed to hospital after splitting his head open!
Matt Smith was rushed to hospital, after he split his head open while celebrating with his cast mates.
The actor – best known as the eleventh incarnation of the world’s most famous Timelord Doctor Who – was partying in Cardiff, after finishing filming on the second part of the sixth series of the BBC show, when he tripped and injured himself.
He was then taken to the nearby University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff to receive treatment.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Matt tripped over in his flat and sustained a minor head cut. He went to A&E as a precaution. He is very, very clumsy so nobody will be surprised.”
In true Smith style, Matt didn’t let the injury keep him down and returned to the party as soon as he’d been fixed up.
The source added: “It looked really painful but Matt didn’t seem to care. Luckily they had just finished shooting scenes – if not his bosses would have been fuming because it didn’t look too pretty.”
Matt – who took over from playing The Timelord from David Tennant in 2009 – has often spoke about how clumsy he is and has broken bits off props before as well as admitting to resting his hand on a light only for it to fall on his head.
