Doctor Who: Season Six - Page 15

post #701 of 724

I thought a glossy new Star Trek reboot was a bad idea, and I was wrong about that.  I'm willing to keep an open mind.

 

So long as Eric Roberts plays the villain, that is.

A Doctor Who movie does not exist in my dojo.

I can understand a stand alone adventure, but I don't see why it has to be divorced from continuity. Event he new Star Trek didn't do that.

Don't get the Internet panic about a Dr Who movie. The Peter Cushing films from the 60's are actually kind of great. The key is, who will be writing the script? And will Moffett have some sort of say in it?

STAR TREK needed a reboot. Doctor Who, as a franchise is at its highest peak in about three decades. It's a pointless exercise.

post #707 of 724

Well, it isn't pointless.  Its point is to make money.

 

That said, let's get back to fancasting.  I vote for a Christopher Eccleston adventure.  He's still young enough to fit into the jacket, and his Doctor brought the franchise back to life in the first place.

He wouldn't touch it. You know they're going to try and get Johnny Depp.

post #709 of 724

Please god no. The TV show is fine.

He did fucking GI Joe but Doctor Who is beneath him?

post #711 of 724

As I understand it, his departure from the show was not amicable.  I don't know the details - something about "not liking what was going on around there."

post #712 of 724

Yeah, but presumably he's be working with a whole different set of people than the folk who created Dr Who Season 1.

post #713 of 724

There seems to be a consensus that RTD likes to surround himself with yes-men, so that may have something to do with it. Though it doesn't explain why he wouldn't want to come back to the existing show, with no RTD. He's made some pretentious statements about how he refuses to "step in the same river twice" too. Which means, if he's in G. I. Joe 2, he's probably a bit of an ass.

 

Some British tweeters have been alluding to something that may or may not be a trailer to the Christmas special, anyone heard anything about this?

Trailer for the Xmas Special didn't wow me like last year's, but I'll keep an open mind.

post #716 of 724

The "Night and the Doctor" mini-episodes on the Blu-ray are pretty great, especially the general romp/punch to the gut that is "Last Night."

What the fuck, BBC? Stephen Moffat is a "problem"? Even if you don't like his version of Who (I understand the ratings have dipped a little? I think? But I also thought that didn't really matter to the BBC?) the guy has generated several other popular shows, including Sherlock, and the dude works with Stephen Spielberg, which you'd think would give him a little cachet.

 

I don't know the guy, maybe he farts on the BBC president every time he sees him or something, but otherwise that seems like classic internal politics conspiring to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs.

"Quite a radical transformation?" Oh shit!

 

Like how the americanization of Torchwood went?

Maybe the Beebers think Moffat is too big for his britches?! Too successful? Envy is a bitch!

and relax....

 

Steven Moffat
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.

 

post #723 of 724

Which of course, is the opposite of what Yates said and BBC LA is pitching around town.

post #724 of 724

I think the truth is both sides are still battling it out.  The Beeb know how much people love Moffatt and would be fools to throw away his input.
