I do adore food. If I have any vice it’s eating. If I was told I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, I could put up with sausage and mash...
I’m perfectly proud of the work I did, looking back at it. I know I’ve had a bit of a revision since my ‘Big Finish’ stories came out.
I haven’t been approached to do a ‘Doctor Who’ movie. I think they would be scraping the bottom of the barrel if they asked me to do it.
I’ve mellowed quite quickly.
I am a big man, but I’ve allowed my condition to deteriorate by being overweight.
If you turn down work because you are frightened of getting typecast, you’ll never do anything good.
I do remember reading the script of ‘The Nightmare Fair’ and looking forward to doing it.
It was lovely to do The Knock because I haven’t done anything really significant since Doctor Who.

One way of watering down the effects of violence is to approach it in a more lighthearted way. I don’t mean to say that you laugh when somebody has their arm sawn off, but you...
I loathe cheese, it makes me ill.
I’m an actor. If you had said to me before I started acting that I’d get two bites of the cherry – you would do things that people will remember forever like ‘The Brothers’ which...
I never have reservations about doing anything as long as I’m being paid.
I like challenges that test your ingenuity.
I never turn down scripts without good reason. If I did, I would probably never work.
Nobody can fail to lose weight in the jungle, unless they’ve got a secret stash of pork pies somewhere.
I take every job on its merits.
