Steven Moffat on Doctor Who movie: "Not a Hollywood reboot"

Steven Moffat has dismissed reports which have claimed that the planned Doctor Who movie will be a "reboot" and completely independent of the TV series.

Moffat said on Twitter: "To clarify: any Doctor Who movie would be made by the BBC team, star the current TV Doctor and certainly NOT be a Hollywood reboot."

Last month director David Yates announced that he was developing the project in conjunction with BBC Worldwide.

According to a report by Variety, Yates said that his movie wouldn't run directly on from the TV series but would be a complete reboot.

However Moffat took to his Twitter account to clarify Yates's comments: "David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet."

And in an interview with The Sun, Moffat said: "There are no developed plans for a Doctor Who movie at the moment.

"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."

"The brilliant David Yates was talking off the cuff and a little prematurely."
