It shouldn’t really comes as a surprise, but the 9th Doctor, Christopher Eccleston, has turned down an appearance in the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who Special. Eccleston, who played the Doctor for only one season (2005) was never really attached to the whole concept of Doctor Who to begin with. 

A BBC spokeswoman said: "Chris met with Steven Moffat a couple of times to talk about Steven's plans for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode. After careful thought, Chris decided not to be in the episode. He wishes the team all the best."

With Eccleston officially out, will this definitely mean that Tennant’s Doctor will actually be his human counterpart, John Smith?
