Grand Moff says No to Spielberg!

Incoming Doctor Who Executive Producer Steven "The Grand Moff" Moffat has turned down the chance to script a second Tintin movie for Steven Spielberg, it has emerged.

Having written the first installment of what is planned by the world’s most successful director to be a trilogy based on the comic book character, Moffat opted to take the Doctor Who job instead.

"I know a lot of people won’t understand it but I’ve been dreaming about writing for Doctor Who since I was seven," he told the Mail on Sunday. "There are no bad feelings between Spielberg and me, but Doctor Who has to come before Hollywood.

"I was under contract to do the first two of the three Tintin films. I completed the first one and then the Hollywood writers’ strike happened and I couldn’t work. I was offered the Doctor Who job and accepted immediately. I hope you won’t make what happened sound too dramatic."

"I talked to Steven and he understood completely. Steven is a fan and he understood my passion for the series completely."

Excellent news for Doctor Who fans… and good to get some confirmation at last that Steven Spielberg enjoys the adventures of the Doctor!
