EDINBURGH — Sci Fi smash “Doctor Who” could be made into a movie, its new showrunner said. Steven Moffat, the award-winning scriptwriter who has taken over as the driving force behind the show following the departure of Russell T. Davies, said he was keen to see the Saturday evening show made into a feature film.
“It would be good to see it in the cinema so long as it is great and fantastic,” he said, speaking at a master class on the show at the festival here. But he cautioned that the the movie would need careful handling.
“I’m not against it … so long as it never gets in the way of the TV show. If it got in the way of the show that would be appalling.”
Fans of the time lord series have been eager to see the show transition to the big screen ever since it was brought back to BBC1 four years ago. Almost 10 million viewers watched the season finale last month.
