Christopher Eccleston to Return for the 50th


I have a message for all of you who are whining, moaning, and honestly, and know that I really try to keep this blog clean so know the power of the word, bitching about Eccleston's decision to not return to the TARDIS this November:
Think of something you don't like to do. Now imagine that tens of  thousands of people have been complaining that you won't do it. Not to mention, you're famous and society watches your every move and is just waiting for a blunder to have a feeding frenzy over.

That's the kind of position that Eccleston is in right now.

Obviously, if you're passionate about his return to the show, you must like him as an actor. And I'm not saying that I don't think he did a fantastic (see what I did there?) job, because he did. Generally, we have something called respect for people we like. So have some for him! He was approached to play the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) but refused because of who he would be working with and because he isn't a fan of the show. We are lucky that we were at all graced with his time as The Last Timelord, that being considered.
