#Quote
1 [on starring in An Adventure in Space and Time (2013)] When he asked if I would be interested, I almost bit his hand off! Mark [Mark Gatiss] has written such a wonderful script not only about the birth of a cultural phenomenon, but a moment in television's history. William Hartnell was one of the finest character actors of our time and as a fan I want to make sure that I do him justice. I'm so looking forward to getting started.
