Doctor Who fan Matt Smith of Essex, England happens to have the same name as the actor who portrays the 11th Doctor, and also has a girlfriend, Stacie-Anne Dilkes, who shares his love of the series. Therefore when the time came to propose marriage, Smith decided to enlist the help of the BBC, who allowed him to hide in an exhibit at the Doctor Who Experience dressed in a tweed jacket and bowtie. When the time was right, he stepped down from the exhibit and popped the question. Thankfully, Stacie said yes. In addition, the happy couple also received a note from THE Matt Smith himself:
Matt Smith proposing to his girlfriend! Firstly, being a Smith means phone calls to the bank take so much longer – there are so many Smiths!! But I bet none of them have proposed at the Doctor Who Experience! Amy and Rory would be proud. Next – babies in the TARDIS…? Congratulations to you both and many years of happiness. Love, Matt.
The Doctor Who Experience is currently wrapping up a year’s stay in London, and will soon relocate to Cardiff, where the show is filmed.
