Someone’s Confused About That Doctor Who Movie, And It’s Not Just Us

A few weeks ago David Yates (director on the last four Harry Potter films) said he was working with Jane Tranter of BBC Worldwide to bring a Doctor Who franchise to theaters which would “start from scratch”. Current head writer and executive producer of Doctor Who Steven Moffat responded to the news by tweeting, “Announcing my personal moonshot, starting from scratch. No money, no plan, no help from NASA. But I know where the moon is; I’ve seen it.”

Since then there hasn’t been an update, until Moffat tweeted this weekend:

He followed up by tweeting: “David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet. You’ve seen the rubbish I talk when I’m cornered.” The Variety article didn’t sound like a hurried statement from a red carpet, however. I’m still going to side with Moffat because I want to.

In other Who news, CBM and Blastr have ten promo pictures from this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special, two of which are after the jump and I promise I only defaced one of them.

Okay, I lied.  I defaced both of them.  Grrr, LENS FLARES!

(Original version here, but I daresay you’ll agree my version is much more festive.)

(If you don’t know the reference, you missed an awesome show.)
