Re: Which actor is most bitter?
I got the impression T Baker was bitter for years after his run. But, he really seems to have mellowed alot in recent years. On the dvd commentaries he seems to enjoy talking about his day and I even detect a bit of regret at his absence from the fan scene and his losing contact with his co-stars for so many years after his run. He should have a sit-down with Ecclestone.
I don't think Eccleston's bitter he's just moved on to other things. And Tom Baker was upset for a bit, but I don't think it was Doctor Who related, he had a hard time finding work after his run on Doctor Who ended but he's since admitted that without Doctor Who he'd be nothing.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
