because i hadn't seen it yet

We were very careful, I think. Having known Doctor Who all my life, literally since I was three years-old, I know its borders very well. So there was never anything the BBC said “You can’t do that,” there was never anything that I felt constrained by. I mean, a lot of the rules I imposed myself. There’s no blood; in very, very rare instances do we see blood. There’s not a BBC guideline on that, that’s mine. That’s saying, “It’s wrong for the show,” and prolonged suffering, and things like that. You know, there’s things– It’s great to give children a scare and a thrill; there’s a line which you cross where it’s not clever to damage children and to give them nightmares and traumas that might last beyond the narrative. It’s just common sense.

“Apart from that, have a merry fucking Christmas.”

I don’t understand people who don’t let their dogs on the furniture. I get pissed when my dog doesn’t want to spoon with me at night and you wont even let them sit next to you??? How do you even snuggle?
