#Quote
1[on Steven Moffat] What Steven's done is taken the Daleks further without falling into the trap of using Davros.
2[criticising Doctor Who: Genesis of the Daleks: Part One (1975), which is consistently voted one of the most popular serials from the original run of Doctor Who (1963)] The moment I saw Davros in the '70s, looking like everybody on the Tube round about six o'clock at night with their headphones on, it took away the menace of something that isn't human. Because suddenly it's half a bloke in there. There's nothing human about a Dalek.
3The sad thing is when people were going on, getting frightfully angry about it coming off, and poor Michael Grade, you know, was being attacked from every area, I think he was actually doing the right thing. I think he did exactly the right thing. He put it to bed for a while and I think the rest is history. It is now huge again and, I don't know about everybody else, but I'm thrilled.
4I lose things all the time. I once left my mother's ashes at a bus stop!
5Jo [Doctor Who (1963)] was very endearing. Gutsy, fiercely loyal. I liked the fact she offered her life constantly for the Doctor's because she realised his work was so important.
6I've been a naughty girl. I think I've been about as naughty as you can get.
7Life doesn't get easier but it does get funnier.
8I suppose it was quite frightening for children. You had churches being blown up, the villain posing as a kindly vicar and me, the hapless heroine nearly being sacrificed to 'the devil'. It didn't go down too well with people of the cloth. (On Doctor Who: The Dæmons: Episode One (1971))
