He's not the one who keeps bringing it up, though!
I'm sure he wrote the message to the BFI out of his own free will.
I'm sure he did. And there he was, giving something to the fans that he didn't have to do. He doesn't hate the DW fans, but he had a bad experience with the producers and the BBC, and doesn't really want to get pulled back into the world. But something that was specifically honoring his time as the Doctor? Yeah, he turned out for that. But because he wanted to, not because he owed us anything.

He's not being petty or vindictive or hateful towards Doctor Who. Not doing the BFI would have been petty.
