I will not be involved in the 50th Anniversary Episode of Dr WHO. JB

In a British TV interview at the beginning of the month, Barrowman was singing quite a different tune, saying that talks with the BBC concerning his return to the Who-niverse had commenced. Did something change, or was he lying? (and if so, is he lying now, or was he lying then?).
If there’s two things you learn from watching Doctor Who, it’s that the Doctor lies, and spoilers are to be avoided; so be weary of taking this denial at face value.
