Steven Moffat Has A Few More Things To Say About David Yates' Doctor Who Movie

Jill Pantozzi:

Because Steven Moffat isn’t sure everyone has heard his thoughts on David Yates’ planned Doctor Who movie yet, he’s talking about it again. I swear, he’s almost saying, “Over my 13th regenerated body…”

Late last year, we were astounded when Harry Potter director Yates revealed he was working on a Doctor Who movie saying it would need a “radical transformation” to bring the franchise to the big screen. He made it clear the film would not follow the television series and was working with Jane Tranter, BBC Worldwide’s L.A.-based exec VP of programming and production.

And then Moffat found out.

“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 tweeted (while he was still on twitter).

But Moffat was recently asked by Vulture if it would ever happen. (Cinema, Doctor Who, Steven Moffat)

Moffat seems to have let success go to his head. Why should a DW movie include the current Dr.? They can do a prequel that shows the Time war and would set up, the current show nicely while introducing new people to the series. Throw money at JJ and he would rock this.
