Staff Writerhead writer Steven Moffat. Responding to a question regarding the return of the badass Timelord, The Master, the Moff said:
“I think the story’s sort of done. I thought what Russell [T. Davies] did with that was so brilliant, because I did think it was over. Once you’d lost Roger Delgado, who was so brilliant, it was tough to keep it… it’s like Moriarty in Sherlock – yes, I know – you think, ‘you’re a great master villain, you know what you do a lot, you lose! You’re always tremendously confident and then you’re humiliatingly defeated and you don’t remember that the next time you pop up with your ridiculous plan’ So no, the Doctor doesn’t really need an arch-enemy, so we’ll go for new ones. So, sorry John Simm.”But we all know the first rule: Moffat lies. About everything. And the fans seem keen to see Charles Dance take the Master in that suave direction from the classic era. With Gallifrey still out there, the Doctor’s nemesis might just make an appearance in future. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
