Harry Potter director David Yates is doing it.

And it'll be a clean slate. Not devised as part of the TV series continuity. At least, that's the plan now.

While I do think this is interesting, not really in a good way. The show is still on and I don't really like the idea of 2 Doctor's out there at the same time with different timelines. Unless of course, they are planning on ending the show...

Considering that other tv shows have had a shot at the big screen it's only fair that DW gets another one. I'm just worried that the tv series will come to an end as a result. I also dread the long debates of whether this movie is canon or not as well.

The Peter Cushing movies didn't end Who in the 60s.

I'm in a mixed bag about this.

I'm all for a Dr Who movie, but I'd rather it tie into the TV canon. Imagine it, Paul McGann's Doctor back for another shot. Don't show the Time War, just show him being the Eighth Doctor alongside a Companion.

I hope the figures are in scale!

This is my thoughts on the subject. It's just a revival of the Cushing movies, which in and of themselves are not offensive. If they follow the Cushing formula, I'd like to nominate Inferno, Frontier in Space, and Genesis of the Daleks for big screen treatment.

I think a clean slate makes sense. For one thing, if you try to have the same Doctor on TV go to the movies, you run into the problem of people not feeling they should pay money to go see the same thing they could on TV. So it's partially a good marketing move.

Also, you don't have to worry about explaining any back story (though, as they showed in 2005 you don't have to reboot to avoid that.)

But it does make me nervous. I think a big-screen Doctor freed of some budgetary restraints could be amazing. It could also go horribly wrong.
And it does make me worry a bit about the TV series. Are they okay with two Doctors knocking about at the same time? Would they rest the series to build excitement for the movie after next series in the same way that they have forbade new Star Trek TV series while the JJ Abrams movies are on the big screen?

I'd just like to say I'd like to see James Calis as the Doctor and Gary Oldman as the Master.

There have been way too many false starts on movies for me to even get excited about this. Anything can happen in 3 years they say they want to take. And I highly doubt the BBC will end Doctor Who in the near future on TV,it is way too popular.

If this does happen, in needs to be a COMPLETE stand alone. And it also needs to go with the times, meaning whatever doctor is on the show needs to be in the movie same with companions etc..

I like the idea of it giving McGann another filmed story.

This SHOULD BE McGann in his new outfit, fighting in the last battle of The TIME WAR! Releasing his specific TARDIS, various characters, and a regenerated 9th Dr!

I would also want a 3 3/4" scale line for this movie (plus current scale), so I can have my Dr with a proper size TARDIS.

Agreed on the new outfit. That leather peacoat is awesome. I think a story less continuity laden would be better, though. Perhaps a hint at the end that he's headed to Gallifrey due to a summons from the High Council that all Time Lords come immediately...

I just saw the Movie segment on TV Tonight. First I want to see a Toy bidding war Mattel
Hasbro or CO.

Time War sounds the most Logical but they said they wanted a fresh story line.

Dare I say it ok ill will The need George ILM, THX put some $$$$$$$ into this.

The Mcgann movie I saw in 1996 at the time it had some nice Special effects from the time. But it looked like a Lifetime movie lol. This Movie should not be in 3-D cause it gives me a sour stomach Sad.

How about an Avatar companion...GET jim cameron on the phone

I'm kind of happy about this- because for 1- he is a very good director. I'm o.k. with a clean salte- heck it worked for batman....
The reality is you kind of have to do a clean slate to introduce a character into the mainstream... it can be risky. It all boils down to good writing...which can make or break any movie or tv show.

They should take a cue from Star Trek, and show his first adventure. Show how(and why) he became a renegade from Gallifrey and stole the TARDIS with Susan!

The BBC is now saying that while a movie is in development, nothing's set in stone.

i would love to see a well concieved trilogy with mcgan, culminating to the end of the time war and chris comming back for a regeneration scene, with the three movies fitting nicely embetween the tv movie and the reboot of the series. i would love to see this but there is no way in heck they will ever do it. lol


also to piggyback ronpur, a well thought out story of the doctors early origins would be exciting. they could go with a new actor and touch on the doctors early years pre hartnell old age, or the thing ive always been intrigued by which is hartnell is the first one we saw, but maybe he wasn't the first incarnation.

In 2015, Robert Pattinson is.....


DOCTOR WHO?



To quote another Sci Fi franchise...

I have a bad feeling about this.

On the other hand, we could finally get....

TIME WAR. Have it be a transition from McGann to Eccleston. There you go. New fans brought in. Old fans appeased. They should hire ME to write it!!!!
lol!

I'd thought the best idea for a film is the current Doctor and a one-off companion in a story too big for TV.

Time War, another adventure with the Eighth Doctor, or "How it all began" would also be great story concepts, offering the chance to look back while the TV show would keep going forward.

And I can't help but think of the missed opportunity of having started this 2 years ago for a 2013 release.
