Speaking to Digital Spy, Doctor Who star Matt Smith refuted that Sandman creator Neil Gaiman‘s Series 7 episode will have anything in common with his Hugo Award-winning Series 6 effort ‘The Doctor’s Wife’.

“No, it’s very different,” said Smith. “But again I think it will be a fan’s favourite because, well, without giving anything away, it just will be, because there’s something in it.

“Neil’s brilliant ideas will always add a level to Doctor Who, which will be interesting.”

Doctor Who Series 7 Part 1 is available from 29 October 2012. Pre-order it now on DVD priced £17 and on Blu-ray priced £20.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
