The Master has returned!
BBC has announced that actor John Simm will be returning as The Master to battle the Doctor, new companion Bill Potts and Nardole in the upcoming series of Doctor Who.
Says Simm: "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, adds: "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."
Fans have not encountered Simm's character since 2010.
The new series of Doctor Who kicks off Saturday, April 15th.
