Personal Quotes (1)

[on playing Davros, the mad scientist and creator of the Daleks] It was all due to Matthew Robinson, who was the director of Resurrection of the Daleks (Doctor Who: Resurrection of the Daleks: Part One (1984)). Matthew rang and asked 'Do you know anything about Davros?' I said vaguely, as my time had been with Patrick Troughton and William Hartnell. He showed me this tape with Michael Wisher in and said 'Do you think you can re-create that?' I have to say, looking at it, this was a great challenge. I'd worked in radio a lot with The Archers and radio drama and looking at it I thought this is television, but it's like radio because you're having to create the character with your voice. The mask isn't doing a lot apart from initially scaring people. The character has got to come from with inside that mask and come out. I thought it would be great fun to do and it went on from there.
