Doctor Who series 10: surprise character to return

Doctor Who series 10 spoilers

Earlier today, we ran a story about Steven Moffat advising fans, if they so wished, to keep their eyes closed during a particularly juicy spoiler being revealed in the ‘Next on…’ trailer following Doctor Who’s series ten opener, The Pilot. Fair warning and all that.

Now, after a big national newspaper chose to publish the spoiler, and lots of other outlets picked up on the story, the BBC has released it as official news, so here goes. This is your last chance to look away.

Right then: John Simm is returning to series ten in the role of The Master.

Here’s what Simm had to say on the matter: “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 added, “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.”
