Doctor Who Movie Is Now A Possibility

Steven Moffat the new head writer of Doctor Who says he would not object to the TV series being made into a film. Asked at the Edinburgh International Television Festival whether he would like to see the series become a film, he said:

"I'm not against it. I don't think it's the most important thing for Doctor Who.

"A movie is one 90 minutes a year. So yes, so long as it never gets in the way of the show. If it gets in the way of the show that's appalling."

"It's been in the cinema, with Peter Cushing. It would be good to see it in the cinema so long as it's great and fantastic."

He also revealed Steven Spielberg was a Doctor Who fan and that Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson had one of ex-Doctor Sylvester McCoy's outfits. Moffat has written the script for the 1st Tin Tin movie that Spielberg and Jackson are working on, he turned down wrting duties for the other 2 films to take over as Doctor Who head writer and executive producer.
