Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Emailed old friend writer/producer Russell T. Davies and asked to be put on the list of possibles for the title role in the revival of Doctor Who (2005) series. He has claimed in interviews that he was not a fan of the original Doctor Who (1963) and was really attracted to take the part because of his admiration for Davies as a writer. See more »
