You can’t blame Eddie Redmayne or Benedict Cumberbatch but inequality will lead to a milky, anodyne culture. To an extent that’s already happened … There’s not enough writing for women or people of colour.  It frustrates me when they insist on doing all-male Shakespearean productions – a wonderful intellectual exercise, maybe, but it’s outrageous because it’s putting a lot of women out of work.
—  Christopher Eccleston pointing out inequalities in media representation in a polite and collected manner, and generally continuing to be a superb human being.  (x)
