but RTD and Julie Gardner said that, no, the ninth Doctor had to appear with Rose because that was the brand.
And The Brand is why the idea of a McGann Doctor year just won't happen, it doesn't fit with how the BBC see Doctor Who as A Brand. Matt Smith is the current Brand, when he goes, the 12th Doctor will be the new one. Confusing that by having McGann back for a while breaks the rules of Branding (bear in mind that, initially, the brand managers didn't want anything pre-11th Doctor, let alone pre-9th, in the Doctor Who Experience, and had to persuaded round. Because rule one of branding is you don't let the brand get polluted by old associations).
