Mr. Eccleston, to all of us signing this, you are Our Doctor. You reignited the series. We recognize you owe us nothing. You may be a private individual, and the BBC may not have treated you with the respect you deserve.
But you would make thousands of your fans very happy if you would be willing to set all this aside for an appearance in the special.
We cannot know all the reasons you left the show, but we can assure you your fans were upset when you did.
We, the fans of the Ninth Doctor, respectfully request your return for the 50th Anniversary special.
Thanks for taking the time to consider this.
