Matt Smith's time as Doctor Who is well and truly coming to a close following the news that the filming for the Christmas special has wrapped up.

Having begin filming for the festive special in September, the filming for the episode came to an end with producer Marcus Wilson posting on Twitter:

"So it's goodnight from me, and it's goodnight from him. That's a wrap. Christmas 2013. Thank you all."

The news will no doubt make many Doctor Who fans sad in the knowledge that Matt has left his role as the iconic Time Lord having announced his departure earlier this year. However, it's not just the fans who will be left sad as Steven Moffat told EntertainmentWise about Matt's last hurrah on the show.

Speaking to us as the filming for the Christmas episode was beginning, the writer said of Matt: "It's hard to let go, watching him on set yesterday (Sunday) and he's so heartbreakingly good. You get all excited about the new doctor and then you go back and you see Matt on his first day back on set and you think 'oh my God that's what we're losing'."

Continuing to gush about Matt, Steven went on to comment: "He's so brilliant and he's at the height of his powers in the part, he's so funny, so clever, so inventive."

Asked about the atmosphere on the set of the drama, Steve re-assured that there hasn't been tears.

He said: "It's fine. I mean it was an emotional start to the week, but he's actually been incredibly cheery. He's a fantastic leading man from that point of view. He bounds on set and gets everyone laughing and moving."

But it appears Matt is going to be kept busy following the news that he will be staring in the musical adaptation of American Psycho.
