Smith on 50th Classic Doctor Criticisms

no-classics-no-50th-fiveishMatt Smith has responded to criticisms that more Classic era Doctors were not called back for The Day of the Doctor.

At the Calgary Expo he said: “It was such a difficult thing to get everyone in it and I think Steven did a really good job. They got Tom Baker in!

He adds: “I think there’s always an argument to say ‘get as many Doctors in as possible’ but I also think practically there are constraints. I was pleased to get Tom Baker, David Tennant and have John Hurt.

However, Smith admits that he was a bit disappointed Christopher Eccleston didn’t return, although he remains hopeful it’ll happen one day: “It would have been nice to get Chris Eccleston. I love Chris’ Doctor and I think he’s great. Maybe one day.”
