‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: they were mean to Christopher Eccleston on the set
BBC News reveals the real reason Christopher Eccleston left Doctor Who, and it wasn’t because he was afraid of being typecast:
Actor Christopher Eccleston quit Doctor Who after one series because he “didn’t enjoy the environment and the culture” of the show.
Eccleston, who is about to star in BBC Four biopic Lennon Naked, took on the role of the Time Lord when Russell T Davies revamped Doctor Who in 2005.
He told the Radio Times he was proud of the show but “wasn’t comfortable” working on it.
Geez, what could they have done to the poor guy? The hints are tantalyzingly vague enough to account for almost anything, from childish pranking to actual whipping of the interns:
“I was open-minded but I decided after my experience on the first series that I didn’t want to do any more,” he said.
“I thought if I stay in this job, I’m going to have to blind myself to certain things that I thought were wrong.”
