Christopher Eccleston on the Muppets

Christopher Eccleston is an English actor perhaps best known as playing the Ninth Doctor on Doctor Who. He also had a recurring role on the NBC series Heroes, appeared in the films Gone in Sixty Seconds, 28 Days Later and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and narrated a documentary about Albert Einstein's famous equation, E=mc².

In 2006, he appeared in the ITV documentary Best Ever Muppet Moments, talking about his memories of the Muppets.

I think really it was the brilliance of the writing. The puppets were great, but the scripts were extraordinary.
I loved Bunsen, the mad scientist, who was forever exploding Beaker.
Gonzo was a great character because Gonzo was like all of us: wanting to be great and was forever nearly killing himself. It was kinda tragic comedy, too.
