Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat has said that reports that a big screen adventure for the Time Lord was in development were a "weird fantasy".

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Moffat said: "There isn't a film. That was all some weird fantasy going on somewhere.

"That whole proposal was not true, did not happen. I can say that with authority because, as far as the BBC is concerned, I'm the voice of Doctor Who.

"So if I say it, it's true. The BBC own Doctor Who and, for the moment, I run it for them. So I can assure you definitively that was all nonsense."

However, Moffat said there would "hopefully" be a film at some point in the future.

"It will be absolutely run by the Doctor Who production office in Cardiff. It will feature the same Doctor as on television," he said.
