'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith has revealed he still has more to offer in his role in the hit BBC One series, and would only rank his performances so far as an eight out of ten

Matt Smith still has more to give in his role in 'Doctor Who'.

The 27-year-old actor - who plays the eleventh incarnation of the titular Timelord in the popular BBC One sci-fi series - admitted while he believes his performances have been rated at around eight out of 10 so far, he hopes to push that score up to 10 in the final two episodes of the show.

When asked to rate his performance as The Doctor, he told Radio Times magazine: "That's a tough one. Let's say eight. I've two episodes left, so I can still get to 10. I don't want to undersell myself."

Fans of the hit series could have a lot to look forward to in terms of the upcoming finale, as Matt ranks episode 12 - the penultimate in the show - as his personal favourite.

Despite his quick rise to fame, Matt - who previously starred in BBC adaptations of Phillip Pullman novels 'The Ruby in the Smoke' and 'The Shadow in the North' - is coping well with the recognition his role in 'Doctor Who' is bringing.

He said: "I can still go shopping, but there has been a significant change because you're more recognised - and that changes the landscape of your life. People are generally very nice, so it's been a positive change."
