(On how excited he was when he first met Elisabeth Sladen with whom he worked on the 4th series of "Doctor Who")
John: I'm in love with Lis; the first time that I met her, a year or so ago, she was coming out of an elevator. I grabbed her and said, 'I just want to say what an honour it is to meet you. I am so thrilled! Hopefully, we'll get a chance to work together one day'. She was very gracious, but after she'd gone I thought, John, you idiot, you've embarrassed yourself in front of Sarah Jane Smith!
