The news that many people have been speculating about for years has finally been confirmed!

There is going to be a big-screen Doctor Who movie!

However, in a shocking twist, it's not going to be related to the current TV series staring Matt Smith as the Doctor.

The film is going to be directed by Harry Potter director, David Yates and it currently in the early stages of development.

When asked about the project, David Yates said:
"We're looking at writers now. We're going to spend two to three years to get it right. It needs quite a radical transformation to take it into the bigger arena.

Russell T Davies and then Steven Moffat have done their own transformations, which were fantastic, but we have to put that aside and start from scratch. We want a British sensibility, but having said that, Steve Kloves wrote the Potter films and captured that British sensibility perfectly, so we are looking at American writers too" 
Is this Doctor Who movie really going to be Doctor Who if it's wiping the entire 50 year history clean and starting from scratch? How do you feel about a big-screen Doctor Who reboot?
