Will Peter Capaldi’s Doctor face The Master?

May 14th, 2014 by Marc Comments

With Doctor Who set to return later this year, we’re feverishly looking for spoilers and pics… hey, whatever gets us through the night, ok?

We stumbled upon this interesting piece on io9 that says the series is heading to film in Lanzarote for the first time since 1984 and that the episode, penned by Peter Harness will, according to showrunner Stephen Moffat, see “The Doctor is returning to the scene of an old adventure – but there have been sinister changes since his last visit.”

So what, I hear you say, well… i09 goes on to rightly point out that “the last episode in question was Planet of Fire, when Lanzarote played both itself and the volcanic planet Sarn. It’s more likely that the production is returning to Sarn, where the Doctor tangeled with the Master. And since we’ve heard from Sylvester McCoy that there will be a new, “very scary,” Master coming, this could be the episode re-introducing the character.”

Could this be the return of The Master – last played by John Simm in the Tennant years? We certainly hope so because, with the Daleks being diluted down over recent episodes, it’ll be nice to see The Doctor’s true arch-nemesis return.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
