Matt Smith, 29, best known for his role as the most recent Doctor Who, having replaced David Tennant in 2010, had some fun filming the new season of the British series near Westminster Bridge in London, hopping on his character's motorcycle and even doing his own stunts — not an altogether great idea.

At one point Smith-as-the-Doctor, wearing his signature bow tie and tweed jacket, fell off his motorcycle after driving through his character's time machine/Tardis. No harm was done, however, and he struggled to lift the bike once it was on its side, but had to be helped by producers.

Smith was seen laughing and joking with costar Jenna Louise Coleman during the scene. And it's no surprise that Smith is all smiles this season on the increasingly popular Doctor Who. "I actually am genuinely upbeat about Doctor Who," Smith recently said, reports the U.K.'s Express. "You know if you weigh up the pros and the cons of the job, the pro list wins by a country mile," he said, adding that the role "allows for constant reinvention of the character. Creatively, I'm very satisfied," Smith said.

Now if only he can stay on that bike.
