Interesting interview with Rona Munro in the Guardian, just seen this interesting bit:

Rona Munro wrote the final story of the "old" Doctor Who, or the "classic" Doctor Who, as she calls it – as opposed to its wildly popular, cultish reinvention by Russell T Davies. And now the Aberdonian playwright and screenwriter would like something to be known. "This," she says with mock portentousness, as she munches a sandwich at the Traverse theatre's rehearsal room in Leith, Edinburgh, "is my chance to say it. I don't think the Doctor should have fallen in love with anybody. I think that's wrong. I don't think there should be any snogging or any sexual tension because" – she gets even more mock-grand – "he's a time lord, and his companion is but a mortal." Despite the good cheer, you know she means it. The running sexual tension between the Doctor and his various sidekicks has, she reckons, been "lazy".

WOW shocked to see someone involved in Old Who not praise the new one as the greatest thing ever like they normally do. Maybe a sign that more old who people will finally say what they think about New Who pissing on the old one's legacy?
