Why Eccleston Passed on the 50th

According to DoctorWhoTV:

Steven Moffat has given a little insight on why Christopher Eccleston turned down the chance to appear in the 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor.

In an interview in SFX magazine (#241, out 16 October), Moffat says: “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.

He adds: “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.”
