After those confusing reports about a possible Doctor Who movie that would operate independently from the TV series (including with other cast members), producer Steven Moffat has allayed concerns.
“There are no developed plans for a Doctor Who movie at the moment,” he tells The Sun.
“It’s an incredibly exciting idea to get that magic blue box flying across our cinema screens.
“But if and when the movie happens it will need to star television’s Doctor Who — and there’s only ever one of those at a time.”
His comments follow Harry Potter director David Yates exploring a film with Jane Tranter, head of L.A.-based BBC Worldwide Prods.
“The brilliant David Yates was talking off the cuff and a little prematurely,” explained Moffat.
A new Christmas special airs on Boxing Day on ABC1.
