There were rumours about Troughton returning...
If I remember correctly, that was one of Sidney Newman's ideas in 1985 during the cancellation crisis period for refreshing the series.

If a previous actor came back to the role I think he'd have to play it in a completely different way, which would probably negate the point of bringing him back!
Mark Gatiss has made the serious argument that Peter Davison should return to the role now, because he'd approach it in a completely different manner.

I'd be interested in a fifty/sixtysomething Doctor because it would lead to different storytelling choices. The Doctor wouldn't be the action hero, basically, which would place the action lead burden on the much-younger companion character.
