It seems that the old rumour mill never dies down. Late last year it was announced that David Yates, director of the last four Harry Potter films, would be helming a Doctor Who movie.
It was then thoroughly denied by Doctor Who’s Executive Producer and Head Writer Steven Moffat that this was happening. Moffat even went as far as to say that if a movie was ever made it would be a direct continuation of the current series with no change in lead actor or continuity variations to the established stories.
In other words, Johnny Depp won’t be playing the Doctor travelling through time and space with a talking TARDIS looking for his brother the Master (Jake Gyllenhaal).
But certain media outlets have chosen to ignore this and are instead taking the overblown rumour as gospel, hence why poor old Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter films, was asked during a recent publicity interview for his new film The Woman in Black how he would feel taking over as a new version of the Time Lord.
Watch his poor shocked face in this video!
Given the actor’s recent reveal of his battle with alcohol, he’s possibly not the best choice for the TARDIS.
