"You can start watching Doctor Who, at any point in its history. You don’t have to catch up with the rest of it. It’s a very simple myth. It’s a man that can travel anywhere in time and space in a box that’s bigger on the inside. That’s as much format as we have. You can join it at any time and absolutely get ahold of it. Dare I say it, I think it’s just one of the greatest pieces of entertainment that’s ever been. That’s why we latch onto it. It’s terrific! It’s simple to understand what it’s about, and it’s hugely entertaining. And every so often, it completely reinvents itself to feel like a whole new era. It always feels at home in the present day because it always adapts itself. We are, after all, on our 11th leading man."
