Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat has said the Time Lord will feature in his own movie one day.

The show's executive producer had previously denied plans for a Doctor Who film, but he has now told The New York Times Vulture magazine he is "confident" it will happen.

Steven said: "I think it could be incredibly exciting to see that Tardis fly on the big screen. It would just be, 'How do we arrange it, and how do we make sure we have control?'

"No offence, but you suddenly take American money and they expect to tell you what to do and all that.

"I wouldn't be happy with that. But it will happen some day, I'm reasonably confident."

Earlier this year Steven had shot down rumours of a Doctor Who movie, after Harry Potter director David Yates said there was one in development, dismissing the idea as a "weird fantasy".

Steven said: "Well, first of all, when? We spend all year making the series. The thing that I would find intolerable is that you get a film instead of the TV series, because the TV series is more important.

"And I don't think any showrunner or future showrunner of Doctor Who would tolerate the idea that David Yates was talking about, of rebooting it and having a second continuity.

"That's just nonsense, absolutely insane and a straightforward insult to the audience. We'd never, ever do that."
