John Simm Returns To Doctor Who As The Master

In the forthcoming series of Doctor Who, John Simm will return as The Master to battle The Doctor (Peter Capaldi), along with Michelle Gomez as Missy, a later regeneration of The Master.

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.”

Writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, 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 series ten, which will be Peter Capaldi’s third and final outing, starts Saturday 15th April at 7:20pm on BBC One.
