Exclusive: David Tennant on 'Doctor Who' movie: 'David Yates is a talented man'

By and Tom Mansell
David Tennant has said that he has no objections to a Doctor Who movie being made as long as it is of good quality.

The Tenth Doctor, who will be making a claymation appearance in The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, told Digital Spy that the transition from TV to film relies on the quality of the movie.

When asked about the possibility of a big screen Who outing, Tennant replied: "I think it depends on how it's done, it will always depend on how good something is. It's all down to the quality of it.

"Something of good quality will always triumph. I don't know enough about it to form an opinion but David Yates is a very talented man."

The Tenth Doctor from Doctor Who
Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter films, is to helm the forthcoming movie version of the popular sci-fi series.

Yates has said that he is currently concentrating on the script rather than the cast.

Jenna-Louise Coleman was recently announced to replace Karen Gillan as the TV Doctor's companion when Amy Pond departs the show halfway through the next run.

The next series will be Matt Smith's third as the Doctor but it is not yet known whether he plans to continue playing the character in the film.

Executive producer Steven Moffat recently told a press conference: "Honestly we don't know [how long he'll stay]. We take it a year at a time and that's the only sensible way you can go with it."
