While “Doctor Who” has been a TV institution for some time, and many of the Christmas Specials actually do feel like movies as it is, that has not stopped in any way some discussion from powers that be from getting the property on the big screen … or at least this is the way it seems based on some more leaked emails from the recent Sony hack.
Per a report from the BBC, there was apparently at least a meeting between the network and Sony many months back about the idea of bringing the franchise to cinemas, but at the time it was stalled because a lack of interest from the show’s executive producers. Hopefully, this is a stance that Steven Moffat and company keep for a while. While we are certain that a “Doctor Who” feature film would make money and have significantly better effects than the show, we don’t really like it when a form of art switches mediums like this. A movie suddenly could make it seem like the TV show is somehow less important, or that it should be striving to get on the big screen rather than being happy for what they have already.
Ultimately, we just hope that the show continues to have the same sort of success that is has now, and that it entertains TV audiences for many years to come without much film discussion rising to the forefront. We really don’t think that this is something that this series needs in order to feel satisfied with itself.
The ninth season of “Doctor Who” will premiere on the BBC at some point in the fall.
