Wow I am surprised. For such a recent Doctor the turn out is pretty poor. No big new series names like Billie, RTD or Eccleston (that last one is less serious).

Or John Barrowman.

Not even Noel Clarke, huh? Including John Hurt to take the place of Chris is the 50th, it seems the Beeb sure wants to sweep the Eccleston year under the rug these days...

@Rafe. I have to agree that the lack of involvement by any major players in the Ninth Doctor era - either for BFI or for the Big Finish Destiny of the Doctors Ninth Doctor story which is the only one that doesn't feature a companion - is disappointing. The episodes being shown don't even feature Bruno Langley. For that you'd have expected them to recruit John Barrowman at least, or Camille Coduri or Noel Clarke. RTD's absence is also surprising, unless he's being saved for the Tenth Doctor one, which is possible.
