Smith, of course, is leaving the show soon, with Peter Capaldi stepping in to fill his dream role.

Danny Cohen, BBC director of television, said: "It's an astonishing achievement for a drama to reach its 50th anniversary. I'd like to thank every person - on both sides of the camera - who has been involved with its creative journey over so many years."
