Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has revealed that Matt Smith is clumsy.

Moffat wrote on his BBC blog that Smith often breaks parts of the set during filming and that the show recreated one accident for tomorrow's episode.

"There's a really nice accidental moment where the Doctor hangs from the strap on the ceiling and it breaks," he said.

"The very first time Matt did it, it was an accident - he wasn't supposed to do that, it's just typical Matt, breaking everything - but the director liked it, so he kept it in. The version we see on screen isn't the real accident, it's him doing it on purpose, but I do think it is very funny."

Moffat continued: "I think particularly the looks from the girls and the fact that he doesn't mention it at all - he just tries to carry it off as a sort of Stan Laurel moment. It's extremely charming."

Doctor Who continues tomorrow at 6.20pm on BBC One.
