#Quote
1The trouble is that some children are timorous and some children are reckless, and in order to save the lives of reckless children, warnings are calibrated for their safety, the result of which is that the timorous live in a state of perpetual terror. What I needed to be told is, 'you know what? Most days, you won't die. It's fine.' I wasn't ever going to tear across a three-lane motorway. The very existence of a three-lane motorway in the same post code as me made me not want to leave the house.
2I read the Hobbit, I thought that was alright. Then I tried to read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and I sort of, at the age of about 11, and I sort of petered out halfway through the Two Towers you know, having, and God knows how many books I will never have read because of time it took me to crawl halfway through that book. And I felt filled with self-loathing that this apparently great thing, I wasn't getting what was great about it. And then later on you react to that saying, "No it's not that I wasn't getting what was great about it. It's boring, it's meaningless and its fans take it absurdly seriously."
3I've never gone in for one of the Personality Tests, but largely because I think I'm too feeble-minded and I'd probably become a Scientologist. I'd probably go in all "Oh, this is going to be absolute nonsense" and then they'd say something and I'd go "Ah!" So I'm afraid of them, basically.
4[on Downton Abbey (2010)] I think it's terribly written but still enjoy watching it and I don't know why. I'll watch and think: 'No one would say that, why's that happening?' Maybe the enjoyment of the sets and costumes is enough to sustain it.
5It's a children's programme; it's not for me, and I was a fool to think my opinion of it mattered. Though not as much of a fool as I would have been if I was an adult thinking that about the original series, which was proudly and unambiguously a children's show - whereas now, for some reason, we're all encouraged to weigh in. My parents never watched Doctor Who (1963) - it wouldn't have occurred to them to do so. They might have been fond of it, they might have said 'Oh yes, I used to watch that as a child'. What they wouldn't go on to say was '...and I still do now'. Whereas these days, a huge amount of stuff seems to be aimed at children, but with the assumption that adults - and not just parents - will consume it too. No-one in the 1920s surely, was reading Winnie the Pooh unless they had a child to read it to.
6I think there's a lot of anger at them because I think basically not only have they cost us a lot of money but they've shown very little remorse. I've not heard bankers say sorry. I've heard a lot of bankers say it's time we stopped saying sorry but I've not heard them say sorry.
7I've only ever bought one album for myself and it was "But Seriously" by Phil Collins, and if there's a better reason never to buy another album then I'd like to hear it.
