"That's the only thing I'd say about it. I'm very happy for there to be a movie, very happy [for there] to be a theatre show – anything you like – but the TV show is incredibly important and must not be hurt. Everybody knows that." 

"If someone can work out how [a movie] actually works, I've got nothing against it,” he added. “But no one's ever been very clear about how it actually works. It's not really got that far and it's not my job. I can neither action it nor stop it.”

"We haven't really, to be honest, got an answer to it. All this story is nothing – there's not been a story for years. I'm sure there's money to be made out of it but that's not the point, is it? We are British, the BBC. We are there for the art” the showrunner continued.
