Sample quotations from The Quotable Doctor Who - Volume One ...  "I love this show as much as ever. I can still catch a Jon Pertwee repeat on UK Gold and be happy as a Zygon."Russell T. Davies in The Guardian (2005)  "I hadn't understood the beauty of sci-fi before Doctor Who came into my world." Billie Piper (2006)  "Doctor Who named 'most successful SF series' by Guinness Book of Records: Suck it Star Trek!"Margaret Lyons in Entertainment Weekly (2009)  "Doctor Who is not a name, but a question to which we're still learning the answer." on "Doctor Who and Christmas go together like marmite and cheese. Or marmite and jam. Or whatever the hell English people eat marmite with. The point is, they go together well." Teresa Jusino on (2007)  "Despite the new Doctor Who being shot in Wales, partially financed by Canada, and licensed in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, and much the rest of the world, Doctor Who is simply British." Shawn Shimpach, Television in Transition (2010)  On being asked if his consumption of jelly babies rotted his teeth - "Thankfully my teeth regenerate like The Doctor."Tom Baker - 4th Doctor  "Doctor Who is always brought back to Earth. It's not about fighting aliens on the planet Zog. It's about real people."Christopher Eccleston - 9th Doctor (2005)  "It's the same show! And the story continues. I'm playing the same man William Hartnell was playing. I just have a slightly different wig."David Tennant - 1oth Doctor (2009)  "The Tenth Doctor's first action in defence of the Earth was to pick up a sword. The Eleventh doesn't look like he could even lift a sword."Stuart Ian Burns on (2010) "The Doctor is James Bond but cooler. Bond gets a boat, the Doctor gets a time machine."Matt Smith - 11th Doctor (2010) "The Doctor's true name is unknown, although his nickname at school was Theta Sigma, which is presumably Gallifreyan for 'speccy git.' "Robert Colvile in The Daily Telegraph (2010)  "The TARDIS may have been impressively roomy but it would still only be a changing room for Superman." Steve Tomkins in Third Way (2006)  "The 'timey-wimey' get out explanation - the Sonic Screwdriver of words."'Camera Obscura' on (2009)
