Doctor Who has been a ratings winner ever since it was rebooted in 2005. However, the BBC are now planning to make four specials in place of a full season. Does this mean Doctor Who is running out of steam? Well according to head writer Steven Moffat (who turned down writing the script for Steven Spielberg’s Tintin trilogy to work on Doctor Who) the doctor hasn’t finished yet, as a movie could be on the cards.
…as long as it never gets in the way of the show. It would be great to see it at the cinema. It’s been there before so it would be good to see it again. A movie is 90 minutes, that’s not that different from making a single episode, so I’m not against it.”
I would be interested in seeing a movie. I wouldn’t call myself an avid Doctor Who fan however I watch it now and again. It is cheesy British sci-fi at it’s best, so why not make it into a movie?
