For an ending, you only have to turn to the last page and see what is writ upon.The Dark Tower
But endings are heartless.
An ending is a closed door no man can open.
There is no such thing as a happy ending.
I have never met a single one to equal “Once upon a time.”
Endings are heartless.
Ending is just another word for goodbye.

Fan Casting: The Fionavar Tapestry
a.k.a. the next Fantasy Series I’d like to see on the big screen or on TV, the next set of books you want to pick up after crying over Dwarves in Tolkien
(And yes, if you’ve read the trilogy and you know who Darien is, you will understand why I picked Hiddles to play him)
I might cast some more characters. MWAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAH.
Steven Moffat Episodes — Series 5
Obviously, the first thing I tried to do when I took over was try to get David to stay for another year. And I very very nearly succeeded. In the sense that I didn’t.
I remember I absolutely had the principle that we were going to get somebody older. We were going to get, I said, minimum of 40s. Nobody of the age of 27 can play the Doctor. It’s absolutely impossible. I’ve got the angry e-mails on record saying, for God’s sake stop sending me people who are 27 because they are never ever going to be able to play the Doctor. And they’ll never ever be able to flirt with Alex Kingston. It’s not going to happen. So I cast a 26 year old. Technically I was right.
And, actually, I was right. Most of the people, some brilliant actors around that age group, they weren’t right at all. Matt just had something going on. Any idiot would have cast him having seen his audition tape. It was obvious. He has that phenomenon of being carved of solid star. You can’t take your eyes off him — even when he’s just spilling coffee down the front of him.
He knows how to play an old man without doing any old man acting at all.
