Moffat: "There are No Developed Plans" to Bring Doctor Who to the Big Screen Currently

48 years ago today, people first discovered that a British Police Box could be bigger on the inside… #DoctorWho #TARDIS #scifi

To follow up on our panel discussion about the possibility of a Doctor Who feature movie in Doctor Who: Podshock 261, Executive Producer and Lead Writer, Steven Moffat has responded to the David Yates comments about bringing Doctor Who to the big screen. He dismissed Yates comments as speaking off the cuff on the red carpet. He also agreed with my assertion that if a feature movie is produced, it should star the current actor playing the Doctor and it would not be a "Hollywood reboot."

The panelist are Graeme Sheridan, Dave Cooper, Victor 1st Mornington (Doctor Who Exposition & Katrina), Dave Lewis (TARDIS Newsroom & Paradox Island), Mike Rall (Who Island), and possibly Saffia Widdershins (Prim Perfect Magazine) (still unconfirmed), hosted by Louis Trapani.

Harry Potter Director and Jane Tranter to Bring Doctor Who to the Big Screen?

It's that time again... Yep, news of a Doctor Who movie is abound again. Though this time the source is coming from Variety. Today the entertainment industry paper has broken the news that director David Yates is working with Jane Tranter of BBC Worldwide to bring the Time Lord to the big screen.

Doors To Adventure.

They are looking for writers for the project currently and their sights are not limited to just the UK.

Unfortunately, as I had always feared when this topic comes up as often as it does, the movie would not be in sync with the established television canon (then again, the television series itself is often not in sync with its own canon, but that's another story). Yates who has directed the last four Harry Potter films told Variety, "Russell T. Davies and then Steven Moffat have done their own transformations, which were fantastic, but we have to put that aside and start from scratch."

Let's hope they don't rename the Doctor character to "Dr. Who" like the two feature films of the 1960s did starring Peter Cushing.

Happy Birthday, Matt Smith

Today marks the 29th birthday of the youngest actor to play the lead role in Doctor Who, the 11th and current Doctor... Matt Smith. So a big spirited happy birthday wish goes out to Matt who is big spirited himself.

Now I believe he is at the age that Peter Davison was when he took on the role, the previous title holder for youngest actor to play the role in the series. Smith was still 27 when we met and interviewed him in April 2010 which is when I took these photos here of him.

She goes on to mension that she shall not be watching the 5th Series of Sarah Jane Adventures, Saying “I find it just a bit strange. I can’t really watch it, too soon. But I know I’ll enjoy watching them again at some stage. And if I have children it will mean a lot to watch it with them.
