Reports from several locations including DigitalSpy say that Christopher Eccleston "has apparently been taking his role as the new Doctor Who very seriously" and is said that he has "refused to speak between scenes, and has asked his fellow actors and crew members not to talk to him." "It brings me out of character," The Mirror quotes him as saying. Though, of course, there have been no authenticated reports of this, and everyone who's been on the set says quite the opposite about Mr. Eccleston, so we don't believe it at all. Also, the Sun on January 18 ran a short piece on Simon Pegg, including his quote "I will not be playing a young Davros" that appeared last month on the unofficial Spaced website (and reported here at OG). Nothing at all new, however. (Thanks to Chuck Foster, Mark Donovan)
