Doctor Who lead writer, Russell T Davies recently revealed that he is confident a Doctor Who movie will be made in the future. I an interview with The South Wales Post, Russell said:
"There must be ways and means of doing it. I suspect one day it will happen. I think once something is talked about often enough then it starts to happen. Being talked about in the papers could almost bring it into existence. It gives us an idea of whether or not anyone would want to go and see it at the cinema."
"I think the important thing to say is that if it ever happened it wouldn't take the television version off air," he explained. "That would be terrible and it would also be breaking the BBC's charter."
"In Voyage of the Damned, our design department did a brilliant job. But in a film version it would have had huge, vast ballrooms and towering inferno-type sets with everything collapsing. Doctor Who might seem as if it's a film sometimes, but if you actually look at films they're even bigger."
Russell T Davies will continue being lead writer of Doctor Who until work on the 2009 specials is complete. Steven Moffat will take over Russell's role as lead writer in 2010.
