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.
He also likes children and wanted to present a positive role model for them. He also said in one interview that people with his accent are looked down on in Britain, often thought as slime or even dangerous just based upon their voice and what region they were born in, and that he felt it was important to show both British kids and their parents that people like him could be positive heroes as well.
