"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."
