Duchovny: 'The X-files Was Better Than The Beatles'

THE X-FILES star DAVID DUCHOVNY holds the sci-fi TV series in high regard - insisting it was "better than the Beatles". The Emmy Award-winning 1990s show starred Duchovny and Gillian Anderson - as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully - investigating unusual incidents linked to paranormal activity. The programme - which ran from 1993 to 2002 - was a huge hit and Duchovny believes it was much more popular than the legendary rockers in their heyday. He says, "Come on - we were better than the Beatles. They went from 1962 to 1970 - eight years. They couldn't even make it to a ninth year, like us. There was a lot of intense interest in The X-Files. And that was a time before everyone was famous."
