Personal Quote:

I thought Doctor Who (1963) improved a lot towards the end of its first run on television with Sylvester McCoy. They had a clever young script editor in Andrew Cartmel, and they brought new and proper life to it. Unfortunately, though, I think they had already decided Doctor Who (1963) had had its day, and they took it off. See more »
