Recently, three of the actors appeared on an Australian talk show. While fans around the world want to see them in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, it’s not going to happen.
“There actually making it now as we’re here [in Australia], so the likelihood is [we’re not in it],” Colin Baker joked.
McCoy said, “All the fanbases all over the world believe [we should be involved], but not the producers [of Doctor Who].”
Colin Baker guessed, “I look nothing like what I looked like originally, so the viewers would be very confused.” Is that true?
Of the eleven actors who have played The Doctor, three have passed away. William Hartnell (1963–1966) died in 1975. Patrick Troughton (1966–1969) died in 1987. Jon Pertwee (1970–1974) died in 1996.
The remaining eight actors are alive and well. Here’s what they looked like back in their Who days and what they look like now.
Would you want the Doctors back on the show? Have they changed much?
