John Simm made a very big impression when he appeared as The Master in the BBC television series Doctor Who and fans of the show would be delighted if he was to make a return. It was recently claimed that John himself would like to take The Master to a very dark place.
Simm explained, “Russell T Davies had a specific idea of what he wanted him to be like. So I just had to do exactly what he wanted me to, and he wanted a giggling lunatic. I started annoying myself after a while.”
He added, “There’s a new writer now and I’m sure his take on him would be very different so I’d be interested to have a look at it. I’d like to take the Master to a very, very dark place.”
However, John Simm has since taken to his official Twitter account to clear a few things up, he wrote, “The Master thing is honestly a non story. I was answering a specific question at a Q+A. [It's] been taken out of context.”
John Simm last appeared in Doctor Who back in 2010 in the episode The End of Time, which was shown in two parts.
