Before we can begin to speculate on who will take on the role of the Doctor on the big-screen, director David Yates says the script must be “great.”
“I can’t really talk about that because its such a long way away,” Yates tells MTV News about a Doctor Who movie. “We’re principally looking for a writer, and we’ll start with that. Everything has to start with a great script, so that’s more important than [casting].”
Yates goes on to say that he doesn’t yet know who would make the best big-screen Doctor.
When asked about the pressure from fandom, Yates says he isn’t worried.
“I’ve lived with pressure for so long. What’s pressure? I don’t know anymore! It’s fine, it’s good,” he said, looking only at the positives. “It’s such a wonderful character and such a wonderful world. It’s exciting.”
