We may have months to wait for the new series of Doctor Who to return to our screens, but Matt Smith features in two new pictures from the upcoming Bert and Dickie!

The pictures were released to the press by BBC, and show Smith alongside Sam Hoare as the titular characters. The television movie is being produced to commemorate the 2012 Olympic Games in London, and tells the story of two young men defeating all of the odds and bagging gold medals at the 1948 Olympic Games.

Check out the photos below!

BBC America will be releasing Bert and Dickie as Going for Gold – The ’48 Games in July. You can read the broadcasters’ official synopsis below.

“Inspired by the London Olympics, BBC AMERICA will premiere a slate of programming to celebrate this iconic event. On Wednesday, July 25, 10:00pm ET/PT, BBC AMERICA’s Dramaville, the home of groundbreaking drama, will premiere Going for Gold – The ’48 Games (1 x 90). Written by William Ivory (Made in Dagenham) and executive produced by Jessica Pope (Sense and Sensibility), the drama is an inspiring story of how two young British men, Bert Bushnell (Matt Smith, Doctor Who) and Dickie Burnell (Sam Hoare, Jane Eyre), were thrown together just weeks before the final of the 1948 London Olympics and rose above distinctions of birth and class to defy the odds and become gold medalists.”
