Steven “reasonably confident” a movie will happen
Steven Moffat has once again commented on the chances of a Doctor Who adventure taking place on the big screen.
Chatting to Vulture, the showrunner revealed that he feels it’s not a case of if – but when. However, he insists that the TV series will always hold main priority in his eyes. “I think it’d be so incredibly exciting to see the TARDIS flying across the big screen,” he explained. “But when would we do it? We spend all year making it for TV, and I’d find it intolerable if you got a film instead of the series.”
He also squashed the ongoing speculation surrounding David Yates’ involvement in a big film adaptation, saying the rumours it would “start from scratch” would be – if true – “a straightforward insult to the audience”. He continued: “We would never, ever do that. Rebooting it to have a second continuity would be just nonsense and absolutely insane.”
In March David Yates seemingly confirmed a film will go ahead in “five or six years”.
