John Simm to Return?
One of Doctor Who’s trio of executive producers and its head writer Steven Moffat has teased that John Simm may reprise his role in the show as the sixth incarnation of The Master, having previously appeared in Series 3’s three-parter finale and the 2009 specials finale and swansong of the Tenth Doctor ‘The End Of Time’.
At the screening of the opening two-parter story of Series 6 in New York recently, Moffat said:
"After [Simm’s last appearance] he'd been saying, 'I think now that David [Tennant]'s left as the Doctor, I would have to leave the Master'. But he pulled me aside and said, 'I didn't mean that! Look at me, I'm fit, I'm okay!'"
Moffat also laughed off the rife rumours that Benedict Cumberbatch, star of Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ Sherlock, would be cast as The Master, saying, “Benedict has to wait probably.”
So, would you want John Simm’s Master back?
