The Master’s Village

John Simm, the man behind the Intergalactic menace and big Scissor Sister’s fan known as the Master, is returning to our screens in The Village – a BBC drama serial which follows the inhabitants of said village across the twentieth century and their turbulent lives, reports Digital Spy.

The series, written by Peter Moffat (Silk) will feature Simm as John Middleton, father to newcomer Bill Jones who’ll play Bert Middleton, the youngest child of a poor family and husband to Grace, played by Maxine Peake (Shameless)

Nico Mirallegro (Upstairs, Downstairs) will also star as their second son Joe, who works at the Big House and comes into contact with the troubled Caro, played by Emily Beecham (28 Weeks Later).

For Simm it was the serial was an opportunity he couldn’t refuse:

I’m delighted to be working with such a great director (Antonia Bird) and brilliant writer in Peter – I’ve long been a fan of both, alongside such a great cast.

Also starring Charlie Murphy (Misfits), Anthony Flanagan (Being Human), Annabelle Apsion (Shameless), Joe Armstrong (Robin Hood), Matt Stokoe (Misfits) and Stephen Walters (The 51st State) The Village will film on location in the Peak District and will broadcast on BBC One in 2013.


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
