Thanks to a revealing interview with Doctor Who legend Sylvester McCoy at the recent Newcastle Film and Comic Con, rumors about The Master returning to the popular BBC series are spreading! The former star was told a lucky Whovian that he had some inside information on the upcoming season 8 episodes of the series, which will see Peter Capaldi step into the iconic role of the Time Lord.
The actor revealed he knew who the new Master was. Naturally, as a Time Lord, the master can and does regenerate. Another attendee says McCoy revealed the new Master will "be very scary," which is a good thing because he's a pretty terrifying being. Naturally, this isn't an official announcement and should be taken with a pinch of salt. McCoy could simply be having a little fun with the fans.
Reintroducing The Master to fans would surely be a great way to help make Peter Capaldi's debut season even more exciting, and convince loyal fans to stay onboard with the new Doctor in order to see this match up once again.
Since Doctor Who is all about theories and reading between the lines, one new take on this Master rumor involves a recent casting confirmation. Samuel Anderson was recently cast as Danny Pink, a reoccurring character and a new companion of the Doctor. But what if he's more than just that?
What do you think of the rumors of The Master returning?
