While British actor Paul McGann only got to play the Doctor on screen once, he’s continued the role of the 8th Doctor for several years in Big Finish audio dramas and has never lost affection for the sci-fi series. So wouldn’t it be nice, says this fan, if he appeared in the 50th anniversary special?
My deepest condolences, Classic Whovians. In an interview with Doctor Who TV, Sixth Doctor Colin Baker said that he won’t be returning to Doctor Who for the show’s 50th anniversary… and that none of the other pre-Nine Doctors will be either.
Asked whether he’d been asked about reprising his role, Baker replied: “No. As far as I know, neither of any of [sic] my erstwhile colleagues have been asked either.”
Did you miss the Gallifrey One convention that took place in Los Angeles last weekend? Were you wondering who might have been there, how many people came dressed as one of the 11 versions of the Doctor, if there were rogue daleks roaming about? Well, wonder no more. Athena Stamos has this excellent roundup of interviews for Crave Online from various people involved with Doctor Who seasons past and present, including 8th Doctor Paul McGann, former companion of the 4th Doctor Louise Jameson, Mark Sheppard, and a whole slew of folks who just really like Doctor Who, including John DeLancie, better known as Q on Star Trek: The Next Generation, who is asked about the IDW crossover, Eric Roberts, who played the Master and is asked about The Dark Knight Rises, and Mythbuster Grant Imahara!

Worlds are colliding! Variety is reporting Harry Potter director David Yates is setting up a big screen adaptation of the long-running British sci-fi television show Doctor Who. I…have many feelings and thoughts about this.
He played the 5th Doctor in the long-running British TV series but actor Peter Davison thinks he and his fellow Doctors may be too old to ever rejoin the series. Even for its 50th anniversary. Peter, allow us to tell you how wrong you are.
