UPDATE: On Twitter, Simm said his remarks were presented out of context by The Radio Times, and that the "interview" was cobbled together from old quotes.
I thought I had amnesia, don't remember doing any of these recent interviews! But of courses they're all over a year old. ... The Radio Times has really done a number on me re. Dr Who 'quote'. Thanks for that! Suffice to say it was taken out of context AGAIN. I haven't done an interview for them for many years, because of this. Nasty, spiteful, trouble causing 'Journalism'. To 'Whovians' or whoever. It's a non story. I always try to be polite to fans and am v. proud of my time in the show. You can choose to believe what you like but I really meant no offence. I've obviously pissed off some bored journalist coz I wouldn't do an interview.
