Steven Moffat on Yates Doctor Who film: “heathen” and “heresy”

by on Dec.16, 2011, under Movies, Television

Steven Moffat is still rather ticked about David Yates talking about a Doctor Who film that apparently ignores him and the current TV production. On the Richard Bacon Show on BBC Radio 5, when asked about the film, he said: “David was talking a little out of turn, there; a very, very brilliant director but no the film as described by him, of course we’re not going to do that. A film that contradicts the television series, it would be a heathen thing to do. I would be beheaded to do such a thing! It would be wonderful to do a Doctor Who film, but when and if we did – and hopefully we will be doing it – it will be very much an offshoot of the television series and we’ll be part of it, and it will star the television Doctor, of course – anything else would be heresy!”
