+ - Doctor Who to Become Hollywood Feature Film

Submitted by
Hugh Pickens writes
Hugh Pickens writes writes "Variety reports that David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter films, is teaming up with the BBC to turn its iconic sci-fi TV series "Doctor Who" into a Hollywood franchise. "We're looking at writers now. We're going to spend two to three years to get it right," says Yates. "It needs quite a radical transformation to take it into the bigger arena." But not everyone is enamored with the idea of Doctor Who on the big screen. "I fear that high production values and the inevitable sexualisation of the lead characters that a Hollywood treatment brings will destroy the show," writes Andrew M. Brown in the Telegraph. "The ecosystem of a great television programme is a delicate thing. Please, Hollywood, don't spoil Doctor Who.""
