I'm glad he did take the role 'cos he was a great Doctor, I just wonder why he took it?
From interviews he says that he knew RTD was a good storyteller and he thinks it's important to hook kids on good stories from a young age.
He wanted to work with RTD again -- they had worked together on The Second Coming
-- and thought the experience and working relationship on Doctor Who
would be similar. It wasn't.
