Will we see a sequel to The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot? Peter Davison has been discussing the possibility.

It's almost a year since Paul McGann revealed that a sequel to The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot was being explored, and in a new interview today Peter Davison that it's still a possibility.

In conversation with Digital Spy, Davison said:
If I came up with a good enough idea. There are two problems, really, in my head. I wouldn't want to do it if it was half-hearted and nowhere near as good as the other one, so it would have to be a good enough idea.

The other problem - and it's a fairly major one - is we had probably the best cast you can imagine. Literally everyone said yes - with one exception - and it's very difficult to imagine getting that cast together again… and not paying them!

I couldn't really ring up people and ask them to do a day for no money at all - their patience might run out! So if I did come up with a good enough idea, I'd then have to figure out a way of actually paying them some money!

All these things are not impossible, but I wouldn't even want to go down that road unless I thought it could be better!
Davison was also asked if he would be interested in reprising the role of the Fifth Doctor in the main series:
Yeah, if they came up with a good enough reason why we don't look exactly as we did when we left the series. [Time Crash] was a very clever script from Steven Moffat - with the 10th Doctor remembering the 5th Doctor, but also David Tennant remembering watching me on the TV - so it worked on two levels.

But that's always been the problem with regards us older Doctors returning - theoretically we should look exactly the same, as we did. Of course, we don't - as time has passed, cruelly!

If someone could come up with a good enough reason, then I would love the idea - but I'd never push it. I never thought we would get a look in at the 50th - and that was fair enough, I think.
