Christopher Eccleston über seinen Ausstieg bei Doctor Who

Christopher Eccleston verkörperte den Doktor ja nur überraschend kurz. Inzwischen hat er sich zum ersten Mal dazu geäußert, warum er die Serie verlassen hat:

„I was open-minded but I decided after my experience on the first series that I didn’t want to do any more. I didn’t enjoy the environment and the culture that we, the cast and crew, had to work in. I wasn’t comfortable. I thought „if I stay in this job, I’m going to have to blind myself to certain things that I thought were wrong.“

And I think it’s more important to be your own man than be successful, so I left. But the most important thing is that I did it, not that I left. I really feel that, because it kind of broke the mould and it helped to reinvent it. I’m very proud of it.“
