The buzz online today, following the announcement of Tom's appearance in series 8 of Doctor Who, has been amazing. A long term fan, Tom is clearly excited about being part of the show, and mentioned it (without revealing any details) in a recent interview for Screen Crush.
But I’m about to do an indie movie, then I’m going to do something for two weeks that I can’t talk about but I’m so excited about my brain wants to pop, and that will just about fit until we go again.
His tweet this morning has been quoted extensively in online articles.
