Quotes edit

I Felt Like the Pied Piper edit

From book-of-thoth.com [1]

  • I was so pleased to be offered Doctor Who. To me kids are the greatest audience - and the greatest critics - in the world.
  • It may seem like hindsight now, but I just knew that Doctor Who was going to be an enormous success. Don't ask me how. Not everybody thought as I did. I was universally scoffed at for my initial faith in the series, but I believed in it. It was magical.
  • The moment this brilliant young producer Miss Verity Lambert started telling me about Doctor Who, I was hooked. I remember telling her, "This is going to run for five years." And look what's happened!
  • You know, I couldn't go out into the high street without a bunch of kids following me. I felt like the Pied Piper.
