Doctor Who Movie Not a Reboot
We can all breathe a sigh of relief now. Steven Moffat has decided to set the record straight on the Doctor Who movie and flat-out rubbishes everything David Yates has talked about.
Moffat said on Twitter today: “To clarify: any Doctor Who movie would be made by the BBC team, star the current TV Doctor and certainly NOT be a Hollywood reboot.”
Moffat then added:“David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet. You’ve seen the rubbish I talk when I’m cornered.”
Moffat elaborated: “[Doctor Who] is a vitally important BBC brand with a huge international audience [that] not even Hollywood can start from scratch.
“There simply are no developed plans for a Doctor Who movie at the moment. If and when the movie happens it will need to star television’s Doctor Who – and there’s only ever one of those at a time.”
“Whatever happens,” he continues, “the BBC and BBC Worldwide will work together to ensure that we don’t just get a movie, we get the movie that everyone wants.”
So that’s the end of that, for now. Though the question remains, will David Yates have anything to do with a movie if it gets made? Or is he just delusional?
