MOFFAT TWEETED THIS TODAY…………
WELL, BITCH SLAP FOR YATES AND THE BBC WORLDWIDE TEAM THAT SEEM TO BE THE ONES PUSHING THE MOVIE IDEA. BBC, TRY NOT TO LOSE THE BRAINS BEHIND YOUR TWO BIGGEST SHOWS.
AND THIS FROM THE RADIO TIMES…..
RadioTimes caught a statement Moffat issued to a national newspaper regarding the future of a big screen Doctor, calling the character and his revered world “a vitally important BBC brand with a huge international audience,” one which “not even Hollywood can start from scratch.”
The producer further explained that technically “there simply are no developed plans for a Doctor Who movie at the moment” but “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, 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.”
