UPDATE: BBC released a statement by John Simm saying that he will, in fact, return to Doctor Who as The Master in the upcoming series.

“I can confirm that it’s true, thanks to the power of time travel I’m back,” said Simm. “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.“

Take this information with a grain of salt.

The UK tabloid The Sun is reporting that John Simm’s incarnation of The Master will make an appearance at some point during series 10.

According to their unnamed source, a spoiler warning will appear directly after the first episode airs. A clock counts down to reveal the this massive secret. We won’t know for sure how accurate this information is until the episode airs on April 15.

The Master has been a foe of The Doctor’s since the 1971 episode, ‘Terror of the Autons.’ Back then, he was portrayed by Roger Delgado, taking on the third The Doctor (Jon Pertwee).

John Simm took on the role of The Master in the 2007 episodes, ‘The Sound of Drums’ and ‘Last of the Time Lords,‘ against David Tennant’s tenth Doctor. He would appear again in the 2009/2010 specials ‘The End of Time: Parts I and II,’ which are Tennant’s final episodes as The Doctor.

The Master would not appear again until 2014, this time as Missy, played by Melissa Gomez. Gomez is also returning this in series 10, as we have already seen in a recent teaser.

Will both Simm and Gomez’s incarnation of the villainous Time Lord team up to square off against The Doctor? Or will Missy face off against her former self? Time will tell.

Series 10 is also the final one for both Peter Capaldi, as well as showrunner Steven Moffat. So, regardless if this information is true or not, expect huge surprises and revelations this year.

What are your thoughts on this potential spoiler? Would you like to see Simm’s version of The Master return? Let us know in the comments!

Michael E. Fromm is an all-around scrivener, writing screenplays (short and feature), short stories, novels, poetry, blogs, articles, and press releases. Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him. Michael graduated from Rowan University, primarily focusing on improving his skills as a filmmaker and screenwriter. After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.

  1. I really, really hate it when the media dives in head-first to tell the viewers of any television shows what to expect in up and coming episodes whether they like it or not. So “thank you my Sun” for spoiling our enjoyment and excitement waiting for the new Doctor Who series to appear on our TVs.
