Personal Quote:

I love Doctor Who (1963) and I love the old Doctor Who (1963). But, even with all that love, you have to admit that the name of the programme had become a joke and its reputation had become a cheap joke at that - you know rubber monsters and shaky sets.

Trivia:

He is a huge fan of the American screenwriter Joss Whedon and cites his series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) and Angel (1999) as being major inspirations in his re-imagining of Doctor Who (2005) and the spin-off Torchwood (2006). He even cast James Marsters, who played Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997), in Torchwood (2006). See more »
