Re: Why the lack of Classic characters?

But then if the Hurt Doctor is supposed to have done a "very bad thing" people would have been up in arms that Moffat was tainting a classic character if he'd used McGann instead.
I think that's the reason exactly for John Hurt. It lets Moffat have a "bad" Doctor without damaging any of the known Doctors. Plus, it's an opportunity to get John Hurt to play the Doctor, and that's no bad thing in itself.
