Who were these guys? What sort of adventures did they have? Who did they travel with? Why did so many of them have beards? Were they locked in some sort of epic beard-off with the Master?
If Moffat ever does bring back the Master I would love it if he wrote him like an evil Tony Stark.
With only two episode to go I feel confident in saying that this has been the weakest of Steven Moffat’s three seasons as showrunner. I still prefer it to the ghastly comic book soap opera the RTD era became, but at best it has been merely very good. Although there hasn’t been a single episode I didn’t enjoy watching, I’m still waiting for a ‘Blink’ or ‘Doctor’s Wife’, a truly great episode I can hold up and say “This is why this show rocks”.
Maybe it is time for Moffat to move on. Even the best writers run out of steam eventually (just look at Buffy’s final season). I honestly think he will after season 8, but who does that leave us with? Gatiss? Whithouse? Chibnall? All good writers, but their DW work has been uneven at best. Unlike some I absolutely don’t want Neil Gaiman to take over (not that I think he ever would). He’s not an experienced TV producer and DW is a major commitment that that would take him away from writing all those books I love so much.
If I had to choose who I’d want to succeed Moffat, I’d probably say Whithouse, simply because I love Being Human so much and believe it is the best chance I am ever going to get of seeing Damien Molony as the Master.
Of course, he’d also make a great Master.
Now that would really annoy the Doctor, his arch enemy being ginger before he is.
“We could’ve been anything that we wanted to be, but don’t it make your heart glad, that we decided, a fact we take pride in, we became the best at being bad”
I love all the masters, (especially Delgado and Ainley) and no matter what anyone says, I just cannot accept Benedict Cumberbatch as a master. If the master is going to come back, he better come back as Simm!Master.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I think it would be interesting if the cast Martin Freeman as the Master instead.
All flavours of Master are equally delicious.
Is it termed “saucy” in the UK? It’s called “spicy” here in the US, not that it matters.
