‘Doctor Who’ 50th Anniversary Special: David Tennant, But No Others?

Granted, ‘Doctor Who‘ fans were pretty over the moon to learn that David Tennant and Billie Piper would reprise their fan-favorite roles for the upcoming ‘Doctor Who’ 50th anniversary special, but such a momentous occasion surely could include other past Doctors as well, right? Not so, according to new sources, but should we really fret the special won’t be exciting enough as is?

Moderate-to-bad news, fellow Who-vians, as it seems David Tennant will in fact prove the only returning Doctor joining the upcoming ‘Doctor Who’ 50th anniversary special. Rumors have swirled for months, even years, that any and all Doctors from Christopher Eccleston to CG reappearances of original stars might take place, but Doctor Who Magazine seems to have definitively killed the hype.

“Although David Tennant has returned to his role of the Tenth Doctor, the other old Doctors will not be taking part,” said the magazine. The article also confirms that Christopher Eccleston had indeed been approached for a return, but was unable to take part in the special.

Of course, having David Tennant and Billie Piper returning to the roles of the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler should in no way be overlooked, nor additional guest stars Jemma Redgrave, John Hurt and Joanna Page. “It is important you don’t turn it into a fanfest,” said producer Steven Moffat in an earlier quote. “We can’t make this all about looking backwards. It’s actually got to be the start of a new story.”

Well, what say you? Are you bummed no other past Doctors will appear, or might ‘Doctor Who’ be pulling a fast one? Tell us what you want to see from the 50th anniversary special in the comments!
