“To clarify: any Doctor Who movie would be made by the BBC team,” said Moffat on Twitter, “star the current TV Doctor and certainly NOT be a Hollywood reboot. David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet. You’ve seen the rubbish I talk when I’m cornered.”

On the subject of red carpets, MTV News got the following out of Yates at the BAFTAs, “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].”

Casting? Red carpet? Who do we believe?
