Brian Blessed's quotes

  • [on William Shakespeare] The blue planet has had its author. It would be greedy to want another.
  • [on Doctor Who (1963) in 1995] Like all the kind of traditional programmes on the BBC from the past, it is timeless and I do hope it comes back.
  • After I was in Z Cars (1962), the head of BBC serials took me aside and said, 'We're thinking of having a young Doctor Who (1963) and we'd like to cast you'. But it clashed with other things.
  • [on Doctor Who (2005)] I think they need to re-examine his surname - 'Who' is very oriental. It's about time they had an Asian actor as the Doctor. And a female one.
  • Women are my religion. 90 per cent of men have always bored the derriere off me as people.
  • I would love to play the Doctor, absolutely!
  • I would love to be in Doctor Who (2005) if they could find me another part.
