The Master, John Simm‘s enigmatic portrayal of the mad, bad, and dangerous to know Time Lord from Doctor Who was a fan favorite. And with good reason, John’s acting skills we’re phenomenal in The End of Time, a two-part special on 25 December 2009 and 1 January 2010.
John’s ability to simulate a voraciously starving entity was so well accomplished you actually believed him. In fact, I think I even paused the DVR at that point to raid my kitchen.
Will we see a return of The Master in future episodes? According
to an article by TV Overmind John is quoted:
consider it,” he said regarding returning to the role he took over
in 2006. “There seems to be a lot of talk about it recently.”
“I haven’t spoke to anyone about it, but I would definitely
consider it [if asked],” he remarked. “It was such fun to do.”
I certainly feel that The Master is one of Doctor Who’s most perplexing and charismatic antagonists. Especially when rendered
so profoundly by the compelling John Simm. Should he return? Do the fans love him enough to welcome him back to fold? And if so, in what capacity?
What was the relationship between The Doctor and The Master at the end, there is some speculation as to whether they parted on good terms, or not.
This particular episode was the last time The Master was seen on Doctor Who, it is also the last Doctor Who story written and produced by Russell T Davies.
So I pose this question to my readers; should John return to Doctor Who as The Master? Are they going to have a tearful hug and pat on the back like long lost college roomies?
I look forward to your thoughts!
Thanks again, Faithful Followers!
