Sylvester McCoy would appear in a 50th Anniversary Special

Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy has indicated that he would like to return to Doctor Who for a 50th Anniversary special of the show in 2013 if one were to be made.

Speaking to BBC News, the actor said:
Would I do it? Yes, I'd be delighted to! I am a part of it, it hasn't ever gone away and I celebrate the 21st Century Doctors.

I know that the producers balk at it. All those egos in the same room would be very difficult to deal with. But the fans are hoping that for the 50th anniversary, which is coming up, they might do something like that.

It would be fascinating with all the technology if they could bring back Jon Pertwee and William Hartnell. That would be amazing - and I bet they could do it if they wanted to."

The actor expressed his feelings during an interview about his new role in the first ever stage production of Evelyn Waugh's play, Decline and Fall, opening today at the Old Red Lion Theatre, Islington.
