BBC Films Developing Script

As revealed by BBC News, confirmation has come from BBC Films that a script for a Doctor Who film is “in development”.

This is of course a non-committal statement of the kind that reverberated around Usenet and older websites back in the late 1990s early 2000s whenever the BBC were questioned about the return of Doctor Who.

In fact it a script was allegedly in development until shortly before Jane Tranter announced the return of Doctor Who to BBC One in September 2003, a project that had been stuck in something worse than “development hell” since the mid 1990s.

The BBC’s Lizo Mzimba via Twitter (@lizo_mzimba) states:

BBC Films have confirmed a Dr Who film script is in development. But IF it does go into full production that’s likely to be some time away.

So, to be clear, it’s not guaranteed a Dr Who movie will be made. All BBC Films are doing is developing a script, before making a decision.

Which raises the question – what are Russell T Davies, Julie Gardner and possibly David Tennant all doing dashing off to America?
