It's Official!

The official BBC Doctor Who website has finally confirmed that John Simm will be returning to Doctor Who in his role as The Master, and with blonde hair. Also returning alongside John, as I have previously reported, is Alexandra Moen playing Lucy Saxon, The Master's wife.
These are the exact words from the BBC Doctor Who site...

"If anyone wants to remain in the dark about the two specials which form the Tenth Doctor's finale, please look away now! Footage from the first of these episodes was screened during the Doctor Who panel at Comic-Con International, 2009, meaning details about the adventure are officially out there!"

"As we revealed earlier today, the episodes feature the return of John Simm as the Master. The Doctor's fellow Time Lord is sporting a different hair colour in the finale, working a striking, lighter look."

"And the Master isn't the only familiar figure returning from Doctor Who's recent past. Executive Producer Russell T Davies, who wrote David Tennant's final episodes, confirmed that Alexandra Moen is back as Lucy Saxon, the character we previously saw in The Sound of Drums and The Last of the Time Lords. Although married to the Master she put a serious dent in their relationship by shooting him but what happened to her after the events of Series Three has remained a mystery, so far..."

"Russell further explained that footage from the finale screened at Comic-Con included the voice of Timothy Dalton as the Narrator. His exact role in the specials is currently undisclosed but Dalton is, of course, best known for portraying James Bond in The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill."

"One of the biggest cheers of the Doctor Who panel occurred when the trailer showed the face of Catherine Tate, last seen playing Donna Noble in Journey's End. Bernard Cribbins, who played her grandfather, Wilf, also features in the trailer which depicts a grim-faced Doctor walking purposefully away from a wall of leaping flames... but towards what, or whom..?"

What do you think of this news?
Please comment.


  1. Am I the only person who thinks The Master is returning in a dream sequence?

  2. The Acrobatic Flea, it seems so. I think if he was only returning in a dream sequence that might be a bit of a cheap episode and rather disappointing. lol
