Moffat Dismisses Any Doctor Who Movie

Very interesting clip of Steven Moffat and Caro Skinner at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2012 from the good folks at Airlock Alpha that touches on the immediate future of DOCTOR WHO and, hopefully, will finally put a stake through the heart of those false rumors about a big-budget movie with its own Doctor and continuity…

I’m very excited to hear Moffat say the show isn’t going anywhere after the 50th anniversary. There had been some worry in fandom that the series might be wrapped up by — or even negated by — the big story the Grand Moff has in mind. Thankfully, that isn’t happening.

Of course, just because DOCTOR WHO will go on, that doesn’t necessarily mean Moffat and Matt Smith (The Doctor) will continue along with it. The lead writer and executive producer of course has said nothing about his (or Matt’s) plans for the future, but who knows what will happen. But at least we know what won’t happen: a movie.
