Steven Moffat has given an insight on why Christopher Eccleston turned down appearing in ‘The Day of the Doctor’.
In an interview in SFX Magazine, Moffat said: “I had an initial contact with Chris [Eccleston] and, in a very amiable and gentlemanly way, he didn’t feel that he could come back to it.

“There wasn’t any big fuss about it – I had a couple of meetings with him, and he was perfectly pleasant, and indeed quite enthused about the show, but he just doesn’t do that, it’s just not him.”

'The Day of the Doctor' will air on Saturday 23rd November on BBC One, and will star Matt Smith, David Tennant, Jenna Coleman, Billie Piper and John Hurt.
