Paul McGann has a few things to say about the new Doctor Who series, in an interview with SFX Magazine. "I'm not being disingenuous now when I say that I've heard nothing," says McGann in response to reports he is being courted to appear in the series, either in a cameo appearance or as a regular. "And I'm unlikely to hear anything, except that they'll probably ask me to go back and do the regeneration, which I'd be happy to do. But if I was them, I wouldn't pick me. I think if somebody wants it more - and again, this is purely, purely rumour, so this could be nonsense, but not only have I heard that David Warner is up for it, but he really wants to do it. And if that's the case then they should give it to him, because you can't beat that. You can't beat passion. While I'd be into it... I've got to be really careful what I say here... I might not have the same passion that Warner would, to be brutally honest, simply by dint of the fact that I've done it before. If I was to get offered it, then I would have to be absolutely certain, and I would have to seek guarantees, that I could do the things I wanted to do in 1996, approach it the way we thought we might before. It would be unfinished business." The new issue of SFX goes on sale on February 18. (Thanks to Nick Setchfield)
