Could Doctor Who Travel to the Big Screen?

In case you haven’t noticed, the Culture Czar is obsessed with Doctor Who. So much so that she’s going to mention the show every chance she gets, with hopes of subliminally inspiring all readers of this blog into setting their DVRs to record every last re-broadcast of the show on BBC America and the Sci Fi channel. And today, there’s news! Showrunner Steven Moffat (the genius behind the British sitcom Coupling, who has also written some of our most favorite episodes of Doctor Who) said over the weekend that he’d be cool with seeing the show adapted to the big screen, “so long as it never gets in the way of the TV show.” The Hollywood Reporter also notes that 10 million people in the U.K. watched last season’s finale…that would be the equivalent of 60 million Americans tuning in for a broadcast. So even if she feels alone, perhaps this fan is simply living in the wrong country.
