Yeah, it absolutely amazes me that people have such frustration with Eccleston, but seem to have NO frustration with the the people in charge who are being jerks enough to make Eccleston NOT want to return.
They should have courted him. yes, he's a deeper more intense actor who takes things a bit more seriously than others. Some actors are like that, not just Eccleston. Some of the best, in fact.
You go after them. You treat them right, and try to meet them on THEIR terms so that they WANT to work with you.
You don't mistreat them, or dismiss them, or offer them fleeting ultimatums. You court them, you woo them, you wow them.
Reading between the lines, it sounds more like the folks in charge never really gave a damn about him, created a venomous atmosphere, and did very little to give him reason to come back.
Be mad at the people in charge, not the actor.
