Former Doctor Who star Paul McGann says he doesn’t think there will be a reunion for all the Time Lords despite rumours.

He explained that no one from the BBC had been in contact with him since he left the role and he didn’t think he was likely to return as the Doctor.

It had been thought the stars of the iconic series would reunite for a Children In Need Special – but Paul said he doubted he would be involved.

“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.

“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.”

He added that although he didn’t mind talking about his starring role in the film Withnail and I, he was fed up with fans quoting his lines at him.

“Withnail gets a little bit tiresome when people start playing the scenes out.”
