Doctor Who Series 10: Michelle Gomez Teases Missy v John Simm’s Master

Trouble is brewing in the TARDIS: Doctor Who Series 10 will see two regenerations of the evil time lord called the Master. However, Michelle Gomez teased that her character Missy will be in conflict with John Simm’s the Master. Earlier this year, BBC announced that Simm is returning to the long-running sci-fi program. The actor previously played the role of the Master in Series 3 and Series 4. He antagonized David Tennant’s 10th Doctor before they both bowed out in the 2010 episode The End of Time. But in Series 8, Gomez has taken over as the 12th Doctor’s frenemy. She first appeared in the episode Deep Breath before she was finally revealed as the current regeneration of the Master in the two-part finale Dark Water and Death in Heaven, making her the first female regeneration of the Master.

Doctor Who Series 10: Steven Moffat Teases Peter Capaldi’s Regeneration

The clock is ticking for the Twelfth Doctor. Peter Capaldi will exit Doctor Who Series 10 on Christmas Day and, in a new interview, departing showrunner Steven Moffat talked about the upcoming regeneration and, he promises, that it will be something that has never been seen in the 50-year history of the show. After thirteen Doctors (including a secret War Doctor), fans are pretty much aware of how regenerations work: the Doctor, after suffering a fatal injury, will try to heal himself by changing his entire body and releasing a burst of energy that, at one point, destroyed an entire fleet of dalek ships. Granted, things have not always been that way; regenerations were a lot more simple in classic episodes. However, since the reboot, regenerations were pretty much identical. Moffat wants to shake things up before he leaves. The departing screenwriter told BBC Radio 4 (via Metro UK) that he is working with incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall to choreograph Capaldi’s swan song. READ MORE...
