Matt Smith and his Doctor Who comrades Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill are no longer visiting Australia.
The news came via a statement from Smith, stating that a family emergency has forced him to cancel the tour, which was scheduled to kick off next week. It reads: “I am deeply saddened to have to advise that I will not be able to come to Australia for the Hub Productions’ Whoniverse event. Although I wish it were otherwise, due to a personal family emergency it’s not possible for me to leave England at this time. I truly regret the situation, and the disappointment it must be causing, but I’m hoping to be able to reschedule as soon as possible for the future; I look forward to see you all then.”
