Personal Quote:

It's tough and it should be tough - it should never be easy to be given millions of pounds to make a drama. The coalition government is doing terrible things to the BBC but drama will survive even if we end up putting on a play in a backroom of a pub. See more »

Trivia:

As executive producer and writer of Doctor Who (2005) he broke some of the conventions of the original series, Doctor Who (1963), by the introduction of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) characters and the use of flatulence jokes. See more »
