New DWM Reveals No Classic Doctors for 50th

Fans have been up in arms for a while over the lack of classic era Doctors in the 50th anniversary – and Doctor Who Magazine has confirmed that our suspicions are correct.

Celebrate The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

In addition to confirming reports that Christopher Eccleston was approached and was eventually unable to do so, the magazine states:

Although David Tennant has returned to his role of the Tenth Doctor, the other old Doctors will not be taking part.

Only the two actors we’ve seen in location snaps over the past few weeks, Matt Smith and David Tennant, will be taking part.

DWM also reveals that shooting on the anniversary special is almost complete and that work on the Christmas special will start after Matt Smith completes the movie How to Catch a Monster.

Series 8 is yet to be confirmed, and as such there are no confirmed plans for further episodes at this time.

Make of that last line what you will…
