Personal Quote:

Television has now grown up and on soaps the role of the director is primarily to point cameras. The speed and instant acting required today has taken much of the fun out of the work and many - particularly BBC soaps - are run by committee. Not sure if this is good or bad, but for young directors it is very sad. See more »

Trivia:

Of the six Doctor Who (1963) serials he directed, his favourite was Doctor Who: The Robots of Death: Part One (1977). It is also a favourite of the series' fans, being voted the sixth greatest story of the original run in Outpost Gallifrey's 40th anniversary poll in 2003. See more »
