The mini-adventure will be filmed and then televised on Doctor Who Confidential. The competition opened in April and the closing date for entries will be midnight on Monday 13th June.
Matt Smith commented: “I’m delighted to support Script To Screen because I’m very passionate about creative writing and believe it is a great skill to nurture. I’d absolutely love to write a Doctor Who script at some point in the future, but it’s going to be impossible to compete with Steven Moffat who is simply a genius and his creativity knows no bounds!”
He added: “It will be interesting to see what ideas the children come up with for me – I could finally be defeated by a new enemy, or I could be exiled to a distant galaxy – who knows – that’s the beauty of a child’s imagination!”
