Ecclestone's Call For A Spiritual Revolution

Christopher Eccleston believes that he is part of a disappearing breed of working class actors. “People like myself, Sean Bean, Maxine Peake – there’s not going to be people like us coming through in 20 years,” he maintains. The Salford-born former Doctor Who actor is talking to i in the wake of his award-nominated performance in HBO’s The Leftovers, which tells the story of another disappearing act. The show begins with 140 million humans vanishing from the face of the earth with no explanation, in an event known as the ‘sudden departure’. As the show comes to a conclusion after three seasons, Eccleston has been given pause for thought about his time in the US – and the lack of diversity in the British arts.

I read an article yesterday along these lines, mostly blaming Mr Cumbersquash for this apparent trend.

Doesn't really help though that lower class/working class people have accents which at times are hard to understand.

Now on the convention circuit, anyone want a signature? How working class that he eventually gets around to this. Wink

An avowed socialist and defender of the 'little man' charging 95 nicker for a fookin' siggy.

Absolutely cunt-tastic. LOL

This is why I don't go to conventions. They used to have an amateurish charm and camaraderie, but now it's all arm's length, money-fleecing shit.

LMFAO. I got James Marsters for about 10 at comic con (it was worth it too. He was an awesome guy, really chatty, wanted to know what you were up too etc.)

Eccelston must think he is worth ten times what James Marsters is. How ironic considering his Doctor is just a cheapo version of Spike LOL.

£95 for an autograph from one of the worst Doctors of all time who looked more like an extra from Eastenders rather than someone who's supposed to be playing the Doctor? I'll pass.

I know someone who paid £400 for Tennant's. Shocked

Remember when celebs would sign something without a price tag attached? I suppose selling on Ebay means they would be stupid not to charge a fee now, or at least sign it to someone. People took the piss out of Tom Cruise for signing for everyone outside one of his premieres but I thought that was a commendable gesture. Besides, there are so many other reasons to take the pissout of him.

The 9th Doctor was obviously modelled on the 90s anti hero model, particularly Spike, Xena and Angel.

Like them he is someone who has done horrible things in the past, but is now wanting to make up for it.

Like them he has an inappropriately young blonde love interest who makes him a better person and inspires him to redeem himself. However it can't work out because he is an immortal and she isn't. Also like Xena she lives a boring life until she meets him and he whisks her away.

Like them he is also a bit unpredictable and can loose it when dealing with his worst enemies.

He is also sarcastic, and moody.

He even has a similar look to them too. Dark leather coat.

I admit he is closer to Angel and Xena overall, but there are shades of Spike, particularly in his look.

RTD was more interested in writing a 90s/00s American fantasy/sci fi series than in writing Doctor Who.

Here's is Eccleston's new model for his Spiritual Revolution. It's all about the giving.
