Answering the burning questions posed by DWM readers – the man in charge of Doctor Who!

“I think K9 is incredibly funny and I love him. I’ve considered bringing him back many times.”

PAUL REYNARD asks: As you approach your final series, would you consider a Hitchcock-like cameo in one of your episodes?

I would absolutely never consider a cameo of that kind. I have done that before, in Press Gang a couple of times, and I absolutely loathed it. Because people make you do the same thing, over and over again. And when you’ve finished doing it, they dab at your face with a little brush like there’s something wrong with you. I hate, hate, hate being on camera. And because of my Doctor Who job, I quite often have to be on camera doing interviews, and I hate, hate, hate that. So no. There’s absolutely no chance whatsoever that I will ever be in Doctor Who. I don’t want to be. Me being in Doctor Who would spoil Doctor Who for me. And I really care about Doctor Who. So to hell with me in Doctor Who. I want less of me. (Cheers and applause!)
