Well as demonstrated above, they don't record voiceovers till the last minute, and their voices haven't aged quite so much.

We could hear what goes on in his head.
It's a nice idea at least

We don't know how old his Doctor was at the point of Regeneration. If anything he seemed to have shrunk. We just know he still had curly hair

the writers would have to explain why the classic actors look so much older.
Why would they have to explain anything? Viewers really don't care about pointless crap like that. They just want to be entertained by a good story and interesting characters.
It's such a strong image that it can distract easily, even if slightly. OTOH, make it an equally essential part of the story, and it might be very powerfully told.

And Colin had think white hair. Unless you want this guy to be running around in a blonde curly wig and a bright tasteless coats, I think you'll agree that he should never play the doctor on screen again.

Okay, so there's four of you who care, and... how many millions watching the show who don't?

Re: Eccleston turned down chance to be in 50th Anniversary story

Well, I don't want to tell the man he can't play the Doctor any longer. That'd be like being the one to forcibly retire Chris Pike. But he doesn't even look like the same man any longer.

A good writer could come up with an explanation, though. Perhaps a Doctor from another timeline where he hasn't had to regenerate in a very long time?

EXACTLY.

It's always amazing when I see a science fiction fan with an extremely limited imagination. Put him in a wig? THAT'S your best solution?

Ridiculous.

A good writer already has. We've had an explanation since Time Crash, it is simple, makes as much sense as these things generally do and can be used again and again. I don't know why people keep looking for what we already have.

Thank you! This drives me crazy every single time there's talk about the classic Doctors returning. There's always one person (although usually it's more than one) who argues that we'll need an explanation for their change in appearance. Classic case of not looking pass the end of their noses!

Also, for those keeping score at home (ATimson ), I want all of them to come back.

You realise that could end up being quite scary in the case of three of them
