Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

Unless those "Eccleston backed out at the last minute" rumors are true, I very much doubt that there was ever a full script with the ninth Doctor. You don't put that much work into a concept that depends on particular actors without getting at least informal agreement from those actors that they'll be participating. If Eccleston's participation was ever seriously considered, it would have been at the story idea level, at a point when dropping his Doctor would have been far easier than cut-and-pasting in a character who means nothing to the vast majority of viewers.
