John Simm to return as the Master in Series 10
The actor first appeared as the renegade Time Lord in Series 3, before returning for David Tennant’s final adventure. His character has since made a comeback under the guise of Michelle Gomez, but this time it will be double the trouble as the past and present collide when Missy – who is also back in Series 10 – comes face to face with her predecessor to battle the Doctor, Bill and Nardole. Expect fireworks. And grenades.
“I can confirm that it’s true,” John Simm commented. “Thanks to the power of time travel, I am back, and I can’t wait for you all to see what the Master gets up to in the next series.”
Outgoing showrunner Steven Moffat added: “You’ll have to wait a little bit longer to find out what the Master is up to. It’s been a pleasure to have John Simm and Michelle Gomez face to face in the same role, as it’s not every day that you get to see a solo personality clash!”
