It seems odd that David Cameron was so surpised that the referendum turned into a Tory psychodrama given it was, erm, a means to defuse a Tory psychodrama.
Contrast this with Wilson: he knew the 75 referendum would be a Labour psychodrama and acted accordingly.

Cameron thought he could have a ref without any bloodlust. It was naive. Truth is it would have finished him (and changed Tory party) even if he'd won it narrowly.
Overall though interview seems candid and honest. For any politician but especially for a Conservative, the consequences of fundamentally destabilising your state (which whatever your view of Brexit has undoubtedly taken place) must be a hell of a thing to live with.
