John Simm Returns as the Master on Doctor Who


John Simm, who played the Master during David Tennant's tenure as the Doctor, will be returning to Doctor Who for series 10. He was last seen in the series back on New Year's Day 2010. No word on exactly what will transpire, but he's sure to give Peter Capaldi's Doctor and new companion Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie) -- not to mention regenerated Master, Missy (Michelle Gomez) -- a real spin!
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.“
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."
Doctor Who returns Saturday, April 15, on BBC One (7:20pm) and BBC America (9/8c).
