Personal Quote:

I love science fiction, I'm a sci-fi addict. I started with the Triffids [Invasion of the Triffids (1963)] and Isaac Asimov. I devour science fiction. But I love Doctor Who (1963) because Doctor Who (1963) is a lovely mixture of science fiction and whimsy as well. There's a lot of comedy in Doctor Who (1963). See more »
