Well, it seems that the Doctor Who rumour mill is correct this time as the BBC confirm that John Simm will return to Doctor Who as The Master.
John Simm says: “I can confirm that it’s true, thanks to the power of time travel I’m back. It’s always a pleasure to work with this great team of people and I can’t wait for you all to see what The Master gets up to in the next series. “
John Simm as The Master and Michelle Gomez as Missy. We really need to see this!
Steven Moffat, writer and executive producer, says: “Nothing stays secret for long on Doctor Who but you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to see exactly what The Master is up to and how he makes his return to face the Doctor. It’s been a huge pleasure to have fan favourites John Simm and Michelle Gomez face to face in the same role! It’s not often you get to see a solo personality clash.”
John Simm was last seen as The Master on New Year’s Day 2010. But when he is to show up in series 10 is yet to be discovered.
Doctor Who returns to BBC One and BBC America with episode one The Pilot on Saturday, April 15th. A wonderful introduction to new companion Pearl Mackie. She joins Peter Capaldi as the Doctor and Matt Lucas’ Nardole in the TARDIS.
