Woah! John Simm to return as The Master in Doctor Who

And for my next trick… John Simm is back as The Master!

Here’s something I don’t think any of us expected to hear, and in some way I wish I hadn’t but now I have I’m sharing it, but the BBC have confirmed that previous Russell T Davis-era John Simm is to RETURN as The Master in Doctor Who!

It’s been 7 years since we last saw him in Doctor Who but with the Mondasian Cybermen returning, for the first time in 50 years, there’s certainly something at play with the told timey-wimey thing, especially as Michelle Gomez‘s Missy is also present in the upcoming season 10.

Peter Capaldi‘s last outing seems like it might have a lot of surprises, Pearl Mackie‘s Bill Potts looks great as a companion and it’s also head-writer and exec producer Steven Moffat‘s farewell so it looks like he’s bringing the big guns and taking us with him. Speak of the Devil, as well, because he had this to say:

“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.”

Simm added:

“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.”

Thoughts? Welcome! Woah…

Doctor Who returns to BBC One with episode one The Pilot at 7:20pm on Saturday 15 April.
