That’s right – John Simm, the actor behind The Master in Doctor Who, would like to return to the show! Check it out!
Visiting the Cheltenham Literature festival last week, The Radio Times reports that John Simm broached the subject of a possible return as villain The Master.
“I’d love the opportunity to play him differently,” he told the festival’s audience. “I’d love to have another take on him, to be a bit quieter.”
For those who aren’t aware of the character, the Master is a renegade Time Lord and an arch nemesis to the good doctor. John Simm was the seventh actor to play the character and was last seen in the Doctor Who 2009 Christmas Special Arc “The End of Time”.
“I started annoying myself after a while,” he confessed. “Russell T Davies had a specific idea of what he wanted him to be like. So I just had to do exactly what he wanted me to, and he wanted a giggling lunatic.”
But now that Russell T Davies has left the writing duties for the show, replaced by Steven Moffat, Simm revealed he would love to make a return and “take the Master to a very, very dark place.”
Whether he will or not is another matter entirely, but I sure like the idea of it. What about? Would you like to see John Simm return as The Master? Would you like the character to be darker? Let me know in the comments section below – it’d be awesome to hear your opinion!
