Doctor Who 'to be made into film'

...great :clap: , but please get David Tennant to play the Doc

Matt Smith took over as the 11th Doctor in 2010
Dr Who is to be taken to the big screen by Harry Potter director David Yates.

Yates, who directed the last four Potter films, told Variety that he is about to start work on developing a "Doctor Who" film with the BBC.

He told the showbiz magazine that the film would take a fresh approach to the cult sci-fi show.

"We're going to spend two to three years to get it right. It needs quite a radical transformation to take it into the bigger arena," he said.

"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," he said.

Yates is reported to be working with the head of LA-based BBC Worldwide Productions, Jane Tranter.

A BBC spokesman said: "A Doctor Who feature film remains in development with BBC Worldwide Productions in Los Angeles. T

"The project is unlikely to reach cinemas for several years and as yet there is no script, cast or production crew in place."

Doctor Who began in 1963, and seven actors played the Doctor before the show was dropped in 1989.

After a TV movie in 1996 - starring Paul McGann - the TV series returned in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston in the lead role. David Tennant took over in the same year.

The sixth series of Doctor Who, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor, broadcast on BBC earlier this year.[url]Article Source[/url]

Actors don't tend to stay in the role too long these days, there'll probably be another Doctor by the time a film begins shooting...........

The last film wasn't too bad at all, but nothing compared to the Cushing versions.

I can't help feeling that this time round the audience is going to be difficult to pin down to a cinema seat, if the mistakes in the Thunderbird franchise aren't learnt beforehand.

That's an insult to Daleks everywhere.

He could play himself and be in it, of course the kids won't be able to watch it then. :D

I always think a good actor to play the Doctor would be David Essex. He could make a rather timid Time Lord; if pursued by an aggressive looking alien creature he could suddenly grab hold of his assistant shouting 'For goodness sake, hold me close don't let me go!'

Getting into it now!

How dare you all discuss this without me! :stomp:

;)

Oh and Smeggy...FUCK David 'gurning grin' Tennant!

Lets get someone really good like Richard Coyle or better still, a complete unknown!

TBH, this is not new, this has been mooted for years but doubt it'll ever come to fruition!

My Fave Docs over the years are

Patrick Troughton,
Jon Pertwee,
Tom Baker,
Colin Baker,
&
David Tennant.

David Tennant is by far the best more modern Doc IMHO :)

My most favourite Doc Who character though was this fine lady who was fit as fuck in her younger days and matured to become one of the all time classic MILFs. So tragic she died way before her time. RIP Liz :(

Is it true there's only 12 Doctors or 13 or something around that number?
The eldest says there's only one Doctor left and after that there isn't anymore. :(
Something to do with the regeneration, but I thought he was immortal. :confused:
