I'd prefer all of them, but, I'm willing to settle for just 4-8, if they can't be bothered with the effort involved in getting 1-3

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

Hey, what if those "meetings" with Moffat, one of them was a quick filming of 8 -> 9 Regen? Maybe British actors can keep secrets (better than American or Australian (yeah, I'm talking about you Karl Urban ) actors).

I hope you all weren't surprised that he Eccleston turned down coming back to the 50th Anniversary since he has distanced himself as far as he can from Doctor Who since he left.

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

[/QUOTE]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.[/QUOTE]

Damn, I'm sorry I brought it up lol
Like I said, I'm an American who hasn't seen WHO since Davison left (I did catch a little of the eighth Doctor). I really don't care how they present it--the bunch of them could all just stand there, and I'd watch it. It's just be fun to see them--all of them--running around the universe one more time.

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

Oh, and I did watch some T. Baker last night--hadn't seen Destiny of the Daleks and the Horns of Nimon in over thirty years.

That did it--I'm officially changing my name to Soldeed....

Eccleston has promised to be in the 100th-anniversary special, so long as Joe Ahearne directs.

So, if Eccelston and Ahearne make it to 100 and are still able to work, we're in (Of course that means I need to make it to 100 also, since Eccelston is about 1 month older than me)

How would you feel if people kept asking you about a job you had a terrible time at and had quit eight years ago?

To be charitable, it could simply be that Eccleston knew that others -- RTD, Collinson, Gardner, Piper -- would get mentioned by other VIPs in attendance, if they weren't there themselves, and Eccleston, who had a well-known reputation as being on the side of the crew during the production, wanted to make sure that a director he liked working with wasn't overlooked and got a shout-out.

Okay, okay, I can't quite make myself believe that. *sigh*

Oh I would totally seize every chance I get to get back at the people I used to work with by peppering press releases with cryptic double entendres. Sounds entirely reasonable.

^Who cares?

About cryptic, sounds like he disapproves the lack of old doctors in the 50th.
