When asked what their biggest regret was on the series, the actor, 33, revealed: 'My great regret was that I didn't get another season with Jenna'.
And after a fan accused him of leaving too soon, allowing Peter Capaldi to take over, his former co-star Alex Kingston jumped to his defence stating, 'Matt's the Doctor I worked with the most, so it was hard.
'But there is only an amount of time anyone can play the Doctor because they get burnt out. They're in every scene and if they have a day off, it's media.'

Matt looked slick in a pin-stripe shirt as he put on a light-hearted display with gorgeous Jenna.
The actor also offered more insight into his time on the show and revealed there were plans to showcase the character's darker side - taking inspiration from popular series Breaking Bad.
'I was really interested in that element of the Doctor. I think if I'd carried on that was what Steven was going to explore. It would have been like Breaking Bad.
'You've got to be really careful with him as a character. It would be hard to watch him be really awful to everyone.'
