Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has insisted that the planned movie adaptation will be faithful to the show.

Moffat took to Twitter to clear up fears that the BBC show would be completely rebooted by a Hollywood team, adding that Matt Smith or any other actor playing the Doctor when production begins would star in the film.

“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,” he wrote.

Moffat apparently tweeted in response to “off the cuff” comments made by Doctor Who director David Yates about his plans to begin casting the picture.

“David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet,” he explained. “You’ve seen the rubbish I talk when I’m cornered.”

Yates has stated that a Doctor Who movie will take years to reach the big screen, adding: “It’s a long journey and we’re going to take our time with it.”
