'Doctor Who' too big for me, says Paul McGann

Post by timechild on 2011-06-30, 13:46

Paul McGann has hinted that he would not be as keen to join Doctor Who in 2011.

The 51-year-old actor, who played The Doctor in the 1996 TV movie, said that he would find the attention attached to the role these days "tricky", comparing himself to Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston.

Speaking about the adulation now afforded to fellow stage actor David Tennant following his lead role in Doctor Who, McGann told Official London Theatre: "He's fantastic of course and he's obviously got a great sense of humour about everything.

"Chris, I think, seemingly found it tricky. I think I probably would have been more like Chris. I like my privacy."

The star added that he was happy to "escape" the format, having not reprised his role when Russell T Davies brought the show back in 2005.

McGann was initially employed for a full Doctor Who series following the one-off film, but the idea was subsequently scrapped.

Nah he will return for the 50th Anniversary. I think the only person likely not to return is :doctor 9. Which is a shame.

I completely agree with this. I dont understand why C.E refuses to return to Doctor Who.

He is very much against typecasting. Also I dont think he agreed with how he was treated by the bbc.
