Eccleston: "clashed" with Doctor Who hierarchy

In an interview with BBC Radio 4 show Loose Ends, Christopher Eccleston talked about why he left Doctor Who back in 2005. When directly asked, the actor replied, "myself and three other individuals at the top of the pyramid clashed." Listen to the interview in the player above.

Eccleston also talks about why he wanted to be involved in the show and looks back on his time in the TARDIS, adding: "I'm always there in spirit."

Earlier today Eccleston was interviewed and said he'd "had enough" and wouldn't compromise which led to his departure - more HERE.

Eccleston played The Ninth Doctor for thirteen episodes of Doctor Who alongside Billie Piper in 2005, winning praise from all quarters and proving to be a huge hit with fans. And much-missed now.

His new drama Safe House starts on Monday on ITV at 9pm - visit a gallery of pictures HERE.
