There are a lot of Whovians who like to shit on the 9th Doctor, Christopher Eccelston. You’ll often hear complaints about his short tenure as The Doctor, that his take on The Doctor was too angry, and when he left he burned bridges with “senior people” of Doctor Who‘s production. Personally, I like to remind people that without Eccelston we wouldn’t be enjoying the successful series of Who we are today, but it’s often hard to change a fan’s mind once it’s been made. So maybe this will.
In a recent interview with Red Carpet News, Eccelston made a few comments that have us questioning his earlier denials he’d have nothing do with Doctor Who in the future. In particular this response when asked about wanting to be involved, “Would I like to be involved? If I told you that, I’d have to shoot you.” Hmm. Sure, he was asked if he’d like to be involved as opposed to are you involved but it’s a different response from his earlier, “No. Never bathe in the same river twice,” comment.

What are guys thinking? Is he likely to return for the 50th? It seems almost a given David Tennant is returning as he’s almost confirmed it himself, it’d be nice to see Eccelston return, too. Something like a reunion of the reboot Doctors would be nice, don’t you think?
