All you Whovians who were hoping to see some more the previous Doctors for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special might want to sit down for this bit of news. According to the Doctor Who Magazine, the anniversary special will reportedly not feature any of the former Doctors of the series. Yes, you read that correctly.
As it stands, David Tennant, the Tenth Doctor, will be the only former Doctor to participate in the anniversary special alongside the current Doctor, Matt Smith, the magazine claims. Christopher Eccleston, who played the Ninth Doctor back in 2005, was asked to participate in the anniversary special but declined to take part.
Sylvester McCoy, who played the Seventh Doctor, had previously told Digital Spy that none of the former doctors from the 20th Century have been invited to take part of the special. McCoy said, All of us want to do it, just for the fans - because that’s what they want. But we’ve heard nothing - Tom Baker’s heard nothing, Colin Baker, Peter Davison, Paul McGann… none of us have heard anything.”
The special will however feature Billie Piper’s return as Rose Tyler along with other guest stars including John Hurt, Joanna Page and Ingrid Oliver.
