I Am The Master
Rumours of the return of the Master won’t exactly dissipate with this latest news, which concerns a chat John Simm had with The Times.
As well as relating to how he and Philip Glenister spent a lot of time moaning on the set of Life on Mars ("Christ, I can’t stand actors who complain about their jobs. Though Phil and I used to sit around eating too much and moaning. It was like Moany Men on Mars. Moany Fat Men on Mars"), Simm – who first appeared as The Master in Utopia – made a striking declaration about his chances of playing the lead role in Doctor Who…
"I’m the Master.
"Simple as that. I don’t want to be Doctor Who. I might be the Master again… I’m not allowed to say."
The evidence builds and the rumour trundles along…
