(on starring on Doctor Who (2005)) I’m different from the other Doctors in that I’m northern. All the others spoke with this RP accent [received pronunciation] – maybe it was that that put me off. I think that it’s good that we teach kids that people who speak like that can be heroic.

My bony face is like a car crash. I haven’t got good looks, just weird looks, enough to frighten the fiercest monster.

Theatre is an actor’s medium. Film and television is primarily a director’s medium.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
