    Is this part of why Eccleston quit? Did cast/crew complain about Barrowman's behavior and the producers did nothing?

We don't know.

All he's ever said on the matter is that he disagreed with unspecified working conditions on the show, and butted heads with three equally unspecified people (Probably some combination of Russell T. Davies, Julie Gardner, Phil Collinson and Mal Young).

At least one complaint was made against Barrowman at the time. It was dealt with by Julie Gardner. Davies has denied all knowledge of Barrowman's antics, although that seems completely implausible.

It's very possible that Eccleston DID know about both Barrowman and Clarke, and these were the 'working conditions' he was referring to. If this was the reason he left, it's not hard to see why he's refused to go public, given the nature of the allegations.

Perhaps now that everything's out in the open, he'll feel free to talk about it.
