So yeah, there actually has been some interesting fandom news lately. Christopher Eccleston, the 9th Doctor, has been out explaining another new reason why he left Doctor Who after just one series, and never returned to the 50th. This time I actually find it a bit more interesting tho.
I have for some time just stopped taking those reasonings seriously, as they just don’t fit.
This time on the other hand, it seems more serious, and could be kinda the reason he has made up all these other ones.
This time he said that the crew lost faith in him, and then, he in them. He also said he was blacklisted by the BBC, and decided it was best to just stay away from it all.
Continuing that he had promised RTD(then headwriter and executive producer) not to destroy his show by shit-talking it. In addition, Eccleston told he would never have a functioning work-relation to the man again.
This all also kinda fits with his reasing of leaving because of disagreeing with the politics of the show
