Matt Smith is confident Doctor Who's forthcoming 50th anniversary will make 2013 the "biggest and the best year" in sci-fi show's history

Matt Smith has vowed to make 2013 the "biggest and the best year" in Doctor Who's history.

While the actor - who portrays the titular Time Lord in the sci-fi show - has been kept "in the dark" about plans for the programme's 50th anniversary next year, he is confident showrunner Steven Moffat will come up with something spectacular to leave 'Doctor Who' fans thoroughly impressed.

He said: "We're as much in the dark as the majority of other people.

"I imagine I'll get to read something in January, February time. We'll make it the biggest and the best year, hopefully in the show's history."

Before the 50th anniversary celebrations can begin next year, Matt will star in a special festive episode, 'Doctor Who - The Snowmen', which will see the official debut of Jenna-Louise Coleman as the Time Lord's new companion Clara Oswin, and the brunette actress says fans can look forward to "lots of big Christmassy moments" in the episode.

She explained: "[There is] lots of Christmas magic, lots of big Christmassy moments, the beginning of a new relationship, lots of danger and lots of snow."

Jenna-Louise and Matt will share a kiss in the Christmas special - which will see them take on a mysterious icy menace causing chaos in Victorian England - and the 26-year-old beauty admits she has had great fun working with the 30-year-old star.

In a joint interview on BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat, Matt said: "It's a bonding experience unlike any other show."

Jenna-Louise added: "It's kind of a friendship that, we've been through things that you can't have anywhere else.

"We've spent the last six months saving the world 10 times, running down corridors, fighting monsters."

'Doctor Who - The Snowmen' airs on BBC One on Christmas Day (25.12.12) at 5:15pm.
