In answer to the overwhelming response to the Time Lord 45 years ago, David Yates, director of the Harry Potter series, said he was planning to make a movie on the cult sci-fi show. Yates was the director of four movies that featured the very popular teenage wizard created by J.K.Rowling, Harry Potter. In an interview with the Variety magazine, he said that he would very soon start on the job of bringing the new Time Lord back to viewers, and that it would take more than a couple of years to straighten things out.

Doctor Who and the Daleks

Starring Peter Cushing, who featured in Doctor Who And The Daleks (1965) as well as in Doctor Who: Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 AD (1966), the movies were appreciated throughout the country. Since then, there have been periodic talks about making a new movie. Yates’ comments on his upcoming movie sparked excitement as well as caution from movie fanatics. While most of the fans of the movie were really excited that they would be able to see Dr. Who on the big screen again, there were some who expressed concerns about the future transformations of the movie. This was because Yates said he would not be involving Steven Moffat, the current writer of the TV series, or Russell T Davies, who wrote the series from 2005 to 2010.

Yates, in his interview, said that the story would require radical transformation if it was to be displayed in the bigger arena, and therefore his team was looking for writers. He said that he would also not mind roping in a US writer, as long as he/she could offer “British sensibility”.
