Thought you may have a view on this one. There was an article on El Reg about the path the series was taking. Surprised me simply because it was so direct.
Also completely correct. Rusty started well but was on some maniacal ego trip that was forcing his series finale's to become more and more batshit insane. It's very telling that most of the best episodes from series 1-4 were not written by Russel T Davies. As for Moffat's era, he has inherited a massive amount of baggage from dear old Rusty and I do believe he's done well but what the series really needs more than anything is a complete continuity reboot. Canon is not a word that can be used with Doctor Who because in truth the canon has been rewritten all the time. As much as Rusty get's the blame for mucking around with Who, John Nathan Turner did just as much during the 80's if not worse.
What Doctor Who really, really doesn't need is a Movie series which is unconnected to the TV series being shown at the same time. That's just going to make things even worse and more confusing for fans. Seriously I thought the whole point of spinning off Torchwood was so they could make these bigger budget US-based productions without messing with the core show. Noe you are going to have Doctor Who series 7, Torchwood series 5 and a Doctor Who movie franchise.
I hope they make it a reboot in a separate continuity so we can ignore it and forget about it, a bit like the Peter Cushing films.
That's exactly what it will be. Neither Russel T Davies or Steven Moffat are involved in the Movies. Who they get to write is anyone's guess. I would like Paul Cornell or Andrew Cartmel but likely it will be Chris Chibnall knowing our luck.
