Hussein had this to say on the matter:
"There is an element now, and I know we're living in a different era, of sexuality that has crept in."
"The intriguing thing about the original person was that you never quite knew about him and there was a mystery and an unavailability about him. Now we've just had a recent rebirth and another girl has joined us, a companion, she actually snogged him."
"Why bring in this element when in fact you needn't have it there?"
Peter Purves, who played Steven Taylor, a companion to the First Doctor, on the show, agreed with Hussein and also added that the storylines for the show had become too complex:
"The original series was so simple. They were very straightforward, nice linear stories that one could follow."
The Reunion airs on Radio 4 on Sunday at 11:15am in the UK.
