Personal Quote:

[on his acclaimed performance as the Chief Clown in Doctor Who: The Greatest Show in the Galaxy: Part One (1988)] The Who [Doctor Who (1963)] stuff was fantastic and that has lived with me ever since '89. It was the 25th anniversary season, it was big news. As I've said before there was very little in the script, I just had to make stuff up. I was just winging it! See more »
