to the Doctor Who Movie Page. If you've heard about a new Doctor Who movie
rumour then you've come to the right place.
SyFyPortal, usually reliable, recently reported on the idea that there would be a new Doctor Who movie. Unfortunately the article > was based on an old Empire article written in 2005.
So any rumours you've heard of an upcoming Doctor Who movie are currently unfounded.
Russell T Davies has stated that he doesn't want to make any movies while the TV series is running. The next time there is likely to be a break for the TV series is 2015 so that will probably be the best time to do it.
Many fans would like there to be a movie starring Paul McGann, featuring Daleks and the Time War but, for the general public, and ratings, how will this work? For advertising and marketing, and to create a profit, if there is a movie it'll star Billie Piper and David Tennant as they're currently the most recognisable actors in Britain today. If it isn't going to happen until 2015 then it'll probably star Matt Smith with a confusing cameo from David Tennant.
So, at the moment, there is no Doctor Who movie in the works. As there have been plans for a Doctor Who movie since the last one in the sixties, I wouldn't hold your breath!
Here are the current rumoured plot summaries.
A man on Gallifrey dreams of a time when he could be free. He steals a TARDIS and goes off into the universe but there's a stowaway on board, his 8 year old granddaughter. He can't go back and there are vampires after him. He must find a bow ship.
4. The Four Doctors
5. Doctor Bond
6. Return of Doctor Who
Hmm, maybe the 8th Doctor Time War idea is the best we've got so far!
More news as we get it.
