Matt shaved his head for his role in the movie How To Catch A Monster. Speaking at last night’s GQ Man Of The Year Awards he said: I have to wear a wig in Doctor Who, which is a nightmare… [but] I’m excited - I start shooting the Christmas special on Sunday. It’ll be sad - the end of a wonderful era!”
