Simm Master to Return?

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!
