    Could the BBC just decide to pull the plug on a tv show of their DR and move towards a Movie franchise, like when Star trek went from TV to movie screen?


There's a big difference between Doctor Who and Star Trek.

Paramount owned both the Star Trek tv show AND the movies.

The BBC owns Doctor Who, but doesn't make big budget theatrical-release movies. So the BBC would have to license the rights to a film production company in order to get a film made. And that's a minefield.

Co-production on the 1996 McGann tv movie caused all sorts of rights issues which plagued the BBC for years.

I don't know how happy the BBC would be to do that again.

Could sell off to Warners, as Hbo owns the rights, and could make pwn movies/show then!
