The Drums Return As John Simm's The Master Set To Appear Again In 'Doctor Who'

Can you hear that? The beating of drums? Can you? Well if not now, soon you will hear them again as John Simm's version of the great Doctor Who villain, The Master is set to return. He will be facing off Capaldi's Doctor and his companions, Bill Potts, played by Pearl Mackie, and Nardole, played by Matt Lucas.

John Simm said in a statement: “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. “

Steven Moffat, writer and executive producer, added: "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."

The last time Whovians saw this Master was on New Year's Day 2010, when he made the sacrifice to push back the Timelords into the war-torn Gallifrey. We will have to wait and see how he comes back when the tenth series airs, which starts Saturday 15, April at 7:20pm on the BBC One.

This series will see, as mentioned before, Michelle Gomez as Missy - the newest incarnation of The Master, along with returning enemies like the Daleks, the Ice Warriors and – returning for the first time in almost fifty years – the Mondasian Cybermen, with new foes incoming like Emojibots and David Suchet as the Landlord.

Doctor Who returns to BBC One with episode one The Pilot at 7:20pm on Saturday 15 April.
