FORMER Doctor Who star Paul McGann revealed today he has given up hope of taking part in a rumoured reunion of actors who have played the Time Lord.
He said he had no expectations of ever returning to the role and claimed he has had no contact with the BBC since he left the set of a one-off TV movie in 1996 in which he made his only appearance.
There have been reports that the past Who actors were being rounded up for a Children In Need special, but McGann doubted he would ever return to the role.
The actor, who has never watched David Tennant as the Doctor, said: “It’s highly unlikely, because since I walked off that set in 1996, no one’s ever called me, I’ve never met these people.
“I’ve never been down to Cardiff and met what’s his face, Russell T Davies (who masterminded Doctor Who’s revival).
“So no, maybe haven’t they got my number. There’s always rumours, it’s nice to stoke the fire. I’m always hearing them.”
