Colin Baker quotes

I do adore food. If I have any vice it's eating. If I was told I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, I could put up with sausage and mash forever.

I take every job on its merits.

I've mellowed quite quickly.

Nobody can fail to lose weight in the jungle, unless they've got a secret stash of pork pies somewhere.

As any actor will tell you, the hardest thing to do is small parts, because you focus all your attention and concentration on that small part. When you're playing the lead part, you don't have time to think about the whole of it, so you just have to steam on and get on with it.

I could, I think, quite easily have gone to Oxford. I got four good A levels, but my father's income was such that I wouldn't have got a grant, and he wouldn't let me go to university, and that was the end of it.

I was well aware of the fact that once you appeared in Doctor Who as something else, you were ruled out for the part of the Doctor: that was a kind of well known thing in the business.

Actors love to act all those death scenes.

I am a big man, but I've allowed my condition to deteriorate by being overweight.

I do remember reading the script of 'The Nightmare Fair' and looking forward to doing it.

I haven't been approached to do a 'Doctor Who' movie. I think they would be scraping the bottom of the barrel if they asked me to do it.

I hope I'm always convincing when I act!

I like challenges that test your ingenuity.

I loathe cheese, it makes me ill.

I never have reservations about doing anything as long as I'm being paid.

I never turn down scripts without good reason. If I did, I would probably never work.

I'm perfectly proud of the work I did, looking back at it. I know I've had a bit of a revision since my 'Big Finish' stories came out.

If you turn down work because you are frightened of getting typecast, you'll never do anything good.

It was lovely to do The Knock because I haven't done anything really significant since Doctor Who.

The standard of writing that I'm getting now from 'Big Finish' compares very favourably with some of the stuff I was doing on screen in the '80s.
