Re: Eccleston comments on 50th anniversary special return

I'm rather saddened to learn that he didn't enjoy his tenure as the Doctor and has no plans to revisit the role. I loved his portrayal of the character, and some of my favorite episodes of the new series were during Season 1. I'm extremely curious as to what so turned him off to the role. As others have said though, I imagine he simply didn't enjoy being part of a franchise which actors are generally expected to revisit ("The Three Doctors", "The Five Doctors", "School Reunion", "Time Crash", various spoiler-y things related to companions in the new series, etc.)
