Steven Moffat was a guest (alongside Matt Smith!) this afternoon on BBC Radio 5 Live's Richard Bacon Show, during which the question of the potential "reboot" film being made came up; he responded:
David (Yates) was talking a little out of turn, there; a very, very brilliant director but no the film as described by him, of course we're not going to do that - a film that contradicts the television series, it would be a heathen thing to do ... I would be 'beheaded' to do such a thing!

It would be wonderful to do a Doctor Who film, but when and if we did - and hopefully we will be doing it - it will be very much an offshoot of the television series and we'll be part of it, and it will star the television Doctor, of course - anything else would be heresy!
The complete interview with Matt and Steven - which covers the first hour of the programme - can be heard on the BBC iPlayer for the next seven days.



You can also watch a video of the interview in which Matt discusses how Doctor Who got him into science.

Meanwhile, the Express suggests that David Tennant is set to return to the role of the Doctor for the movie:
Tennant, who has proved fans' most popular Doctor during the programme’s modern era, is set to make a "cameo appearance" in the new movie with recent Harry Potter director David Yates at the helm.

"It's felt it would be very fitting to have David involved after everything he’s done for the show," said an insider.
