IMO JNT should've left when Peter Davison left after that he really had no vision for the show and he did try to leave.
I vaguely recall an interview with someone, I think Gary Downie, who claimed JNT requested several times to be assigned to other jobs. He was apparently told in no uncertain terms that if he left Doctor Who, that would mean the end of the series there and then.
JNT's sexuality is not the issue for me, i believe he just stayed too long as producer.
The JNT/Gary Downie/Ian Levine story was covered in great detail for many years in the brilliant DWB fanzine.
I have scanned every issue of DWB
up until it became Dreamwatch, if anyone is interested in free copies of them.
