Gay TimesMatt Smith becomes the first Doctor to grace the cover of a gay magazine when he features on the front of this months Gay Times.

The magazine has unprecedented coverage of the new series, with exclusive content including the first ever interview with the latest addition to the cast, Arthur Darvill. They speak with the Doctor’s assistant Karen Gillan, head writer Steven Moffat, executive producer Piers Wenger and and writers Mark Gatiss and Gareth Roberts, who reveals that Matt Smith is set to appear pretty much naked in episode eleven. Costume designer Ray Holman tells what kind of underwear the new Doctor prefers.

Matt Smith on his new role as the Doctor:
What’s gorgeous about it is that I get to sort of confess to my imagination every day. So I get to play around in a mad, imaginary world every day, which is limitless and timeless, and endless and boundless. You know, that is as close as you get to sort of magic really, I suppose, in many ways.
On being described by executive producer Steven Moffat as “Patrick Moore in the body of an underwear model”:
“The thing is, right, I’ll take Patrick Moore, fine. But I definitely haven’t got an underwear model’s body, no way, not on this schedule. All my gym’s gone out the window. God no, I take that as a gross over-compliment to be honest. And also! When the hell has Steven Moffat seen me in my pants alone?”

The magazine also features additional interviews with Tom Ellis and Tracy-Ann Oberman and a special competition to win signed photos of Smith and Gillan, new sonic screwdriver toys, books, action figures and DVDS.

April’s issue of GT Magazine is on sale in the UK from Today. It is also available around the world by mail order or as a digtal download.
