Eccleston, you snob

Who Star Quits Abruptly
Christopher Eccleston has quit the title role of the BBC's new Doctor Who series after just one episode of the new series aired, the BBC reported. Eccleston, whose first appearance as the ninth Time Lord attracted around 10 million viewers in its premiere on March 26, feared being typecast, the network said.

What type of dive bullshit is this? Sounds like someone has Denise Crosby Syndrome. Not the most accurate comparison but close enough. I would have rather him say that he going into a rehab. I would have even respected him saying he was born again and it went against his way of life. Anything but whining about type- casting. Any type of casting is good casting if you can keep a roof over your head.

Whatever, it's just a show. Getting a life now.

Personally I think a large part of him not renewing was "the gruelling work schedule". I heard him say, quite a few times, that he did nothing but Doctor Who for 8 months, which is not what a respected actor like him is used to doing.
