"The 20th century Doctors haven't heard anything," said the actor, who first played the Seventh Doctor in 1987. "I don't know about the 21st century Doctors, but we from our century have not been asked to do it. We old Who-ers have not been asked to go along."

The Scottish star added that he thinks old Doctors "should" feature in the special, since "the fans are desperate for it".

"All of us want to do it, just for the fans - because that's what they want," he explained. "But we've heard nothing - Tom Baker's heard nothing, Colin Baker, Peter Davison, Paul McGann… none of us have heard anything."

However, McCoy revealed that he is planning to attend the Doctor Who 50th Celebration Weekend convention, being held at ExCeL in London in late November.

"I believe the BBC are doing a very big London convention coming up," he said. "All being well, I'll be there."

Doctor Who's 50th special is being shot in 3D and will feature series stars Jenna-Louise Coleman (Clara) and Billie Piper (Rose) opposite Smith and Tennant, plus guest actors John Hurt (Alien) and Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey).
