Steven Moffat has hinted that Doctor Who may return to cinemas following the successful limited release of ‘The Day of the Doctor’ last month.

The 50th anniversary special took $10m at the box office in just three days.

Speaking at the BFI’s celebration of Matt Smith’s era in London last weekend, Moffat commented knowingly: “We’ve noticed [‘The Day of the Doctor’] did well [in cinemas].”

He added: “It’s great to see [Doctor Who] up on the big screen. Television just handed cinema its own arse.”
