Steven Moffat clarifies Doctor Who movie position
Steven Moffat has cleared up some of the confusion surrounding the Doctor Who movie on his Twitter feed. Here's what he's been saying...

Following yesterday’s story as director David Yates gave a brief update on the position of the Doctor Who movie (summation: pretty much in the same place it was a few weeks ago), Steven Moffat has clarified one or two things on Twitter.
Firstly, he pointed out the position that David Yates was in when quoted on the movie. He Tweeted: “Movie thing: David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet. You've seen the rubbish I talk when I'm cornered.”
Most importantly, though, he wrote the following:
“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.”
And that, we’d suggest, is very good news. We'll say again: we don't think we'll hear much of substance on the project for some time yet. But it's encouraging that it won't be, as feared, entirely independent of the TV show.
