Christopher Ecclestone

It has been reported (Daily Mail) that he was going to be in the series but after researchers found he was from a working-class background he was dropped by the BBC. Deja-vu per Michael Parkinson, we wouldn't like to think that the elitist, we don't all want stories linking people to royalty.
