Matt Smith Wants Christopher Eccleston To Return To Doctor Who

Matt Smith who plays the 11th Doctor has said that he wants 9th Doctor, Christopher Eccleston to return to Doctor Who!

Christopher Eccleston, who played The Doctor in the first revived series back in 2005, recently ruled out ever returning to the hit sci-fi show.

On the idea that the 50th Anniversary should see multiple Doctors to return to the show, Matt Smith said: “It’s a [good idea], yeah. But that’s easier said than done I would have thought,” Smith said, reports Esquire.

He continued: “Chris will be alright. Well, I mean, who knows? I’d love it. I’d love him to come back… I love his Doctor. I really do. He was from Manchester. Proper hard. Leather jacket. He’d give my Doctor a bit of a whopping, wouldn’t he?”

What do you think, would you like to see Christopher Eccleston return?
