Although Matt Smith is saying goodbye to "Doctor Who," he'll always be loyal to his fans, as he proves in the video above with a "Love Actually"-like message.

In the video above, The Doctor delivered a silent thank you message to fans from "'Doctor Who' Land" with multiple pieces of paper while filming his new movie "How to Catch a Monster" in Detroit. Talk about a grand gesture!

Smith announced he would be leaving the series earlier this month, and executive producer Steven Moffat had nothing but praise for the actor.

"[G]reat actors always know when it's time for the curtain call, so this Christmas prepare for your hearts to break, as we say goodbye to number Eleven. Thank you Matt -- bow ties were never cooler," he said. "Of course, this isn't the end of the story, because now the search begins. Somewhere out there right now -- all unknowing, just going about their business -- is someone who's about to become the Doctor. A life is going to change, and 'Doctor Who' will be born all over again! After 50 years, that's still so exciting!"
