John Simm has spoken off his willingness to return to Doctor Who as the Master in this weekends newspapers.
However the star of Life on Mars and the new Channel 4 drama The Devil’s Whore was unprepared for the impact his appearance would have on the life of his son, despite being aware of the series’ success.
" never realised what impact playing The Master was going to have on my seven-year-old son, Ryan. I’d take him to school in the morning and I’d feel like the Pied Piper with this huge gaggle of kids around me in playground… he was a bit freaked out by all the attention and I’m sorry it happened that way."
"I’m not, by the way, ruling out a return to Doctor Who in the future… It’s too exciting a show to be a part of for me to do that."
Now that’s what I call good news!
