Happy Birthday, Chris Eccleston!


Christopher Eccleston was born 16 February 1964 and today celebrates his 49th birthday.

Eccleston initially ruled out returning to Doctor Who for the 50th anniversary if asked. But in a couple of more recent interviews he has appeared more open to the idea. As ever we’ll have to wait and see what happens…

Later today we’ll be posting Eccleston’s best moments, in the meantime, we’re wishing Chris a happy birthday!
