Doctor Who Fans Mock Christopher Eccleston’s BBC Blacklist Statement

Posted by March 12, 2018 Comment

This morning, we ran a piece on a Guardian interview with Christopher Eccleston about his decision to leave Doctor Who, including the quote:

“What happened around Doctor Who almost destroyed my career. I gave them a hit show and I left with dignity and then they put me on a blacklist.”

That has been seized upon by Who fandom online, who have considered who else could have made the same statement over the years… with a screencap to match.

That was an indelible moment…

The late Ken Dodd there, ladies and gentlemen… he died. Of shame…

Oh, please…

Fair enough. Onwards…

Ah yes, the guy who claims he was cast as the Doctor and got a free car out of it.

Who gave the most aggressive interview ever…
