"I wanted the Doctor to be a loner…The opposite of Rose, because we were making quite a radical move, in Doctor Who terms, by giving her a family, giving her a mum and a dad and a boyfriend. You want them to be polar opposites. So you give him nothing. But key to that is—-instead of giving him a High Council and a planet and big collars, all that stuff—-you strip it all away so, the more opposite these two people can be, the more they’ve got to talk about, the more they connect. That’s why the Time Lords had to go, it was a programme coming back with an awful lot of mythology and back story, and I wanted to give it a background in which fans and brand new viewers would be on a level playing field."
— Russell T Davies, Doctor Who: The Inside Story (via popscockleswescanhaves)
"It’s a show about a man who’s more than a thousand years old who travels in a blue box, which is bigger on the inside than the outside. He can go anywhere in time and space, back in time, forward in time. Picks up a load of hot chicks, takes them around the world."

"For all the danger the Doctor encounters, the basic message of the show is seize life, be optimistic and see the positives. The series is written with passion and humour, and there’s an innocence about it. It’s a kind of celebration of life in all its forms. [The Doctor] doesn’t react with horror when he sees a blue, three-headed monster. He reacts with wonder, and I think that’s a very important message to send out to children."

(Christopher Eccleston)
