Doctor Who - In The Cinema?

In July and August, the Radio Times had a poll on which TV programme they would most like to see adapted for the cinema. Doctor Who was the show which had the most votes by the end. The spin-off show, Torchwood became ninth in the list, with other shows like Friends, Red Dwarf and Heroes becoming second, third and fourth. The number of voters amounted to 2,300. Steven Moffat, at the Edinburgh International Television Festival said that he had no objection to making a Doctor Who film. But he did say that, if they were going to make one, it would have to be "great and fantastic", otherwise it just wouldn't be worth doing! He also said that if it was going to happen, he wouldn't want it to interfere with the series, but to keep it going while the film was going on. But he also thought that it's not the most important thing for Doctor Who. He also happened to say, that the next Doctor should not be older. "This is a show that's hard for even the young, super-fit David Tennant to keep up with. It might kill someone over 60," he said. What do you think of this news?
