Matt Smith as the Doctor

Matt Smith would love to see a "space safari park" inside the Time Lord's TARDIS on forthcoming 'Doctor Who' episode 'Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS'

'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith wants a safari park in the TARDIS.

The latest series of the hit BBC sci-fi drama is expected to reveal more of the interior to the Time Lord's time machine and the actor - who will star alongside new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman in the new run - would love to see the eccentric Doctor house all sorts of exotic animals inside the TARDIS.

He explained: "I really wanted to see the Doctor's bedroom but we don't, unfortunately. What's really exciting about the episode when we do find out a bit more about the TARDIS is that it's not just walls and corridors. There are lots of different parts.

"I thought he'd have a space safari park in there where he's collated all these mad animals from throughout the universe who just hang around."

The actor revealed that his on-screen alter-ego will be back to his old self, having cheered up following the loss of his former assistant Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).

He added to Nuts magazine: "Yes, I'm back. And he's mad again! He's turning up in stupid clothes and Clara is like, 'You're a nut job. What are you doing?' And he's like, 'Come on!' So the mad Doctor is back. He's got to be mad and adventurous and curious."
