The War Master Returns!

DECEMBER 2017

The best thing about Series Three’s Utopia was Derek Jacobi’s Master, and in many ways it’s a damn shame he regenerated at the end of the episode, making it his one and only TV outing. So far anyway…

With two incarnations of The Master about to turn up on telly in a couple of weeks to help see off Peter Capaldi’s Twelvy, what better time for Big Finish to publicise their latest New Series recruit than now, ten years to the day since he regenerated into John Simm.

The loss of John Hurt robbed us of more adventures with The War Doctor, so what better way to return to the Time War than with The War Master. If nothing else, in these audio stories the old boy might actually get away with it for a change without Don’t Call Me The Doctor around.

The War Doctor series ended with Doctor Hurt and Leela ready to set off on adventures we will never get to hear. We can only imagine what those adventures might have been had John Hurt lived. But the other side of the conflict, that of the other errant son of Gallifrey, what happened there? We’re about to find out in The War Master Volume One!

The Two Masters!

Never mind all the sadness of Capaldi’s impending regeneration, or the anticipation of the return of the Mondas Cybermen, following The Moff’s warning at the recent screening of The Pilot, fandom was scratching it’s collective head as to what the Mega Spoiler at the end of episode one was going to be…

until today.

Was it going to be a cameo of River and Eleven at the frost fair in episode three?

No.

Was it Jenny, the Doctor’s Daughter?

No.

Was it Susan, the Doctor’s Granddaughter?

No.

Was it Polly, turning up to help defeat the Mondas Cybs in the finale?

No.

So what could this mega-spoiler possibly be?

Well, it was this:

 

 

I bet nobody saw that one coming, I certainly didn’t!

Can’t wait to see how Simm and Gomez are going to get on together…

Exciting as the news is, Whopix can’t help thinking that perhaps two incarnations of the Master and the Mondas Cybermen in the series finale ┬áis maybe a bit much? Having Simm and Gomez on screen together would make a two-part finale on its own, and the idea of having two incarnations of the Master meeting each other has been done before…

And if the BBC Publicity Dept hadn’t stuck Simm in the trailer, I wonder how much longer they would have managed to keep his inclusion under wraps? We haven’t had a real surprise reveal since Derek Jacobi told us who he really was in Utopia

Despite being comprehensively spoiled by the Press, fandom can at least hold its collective breath for the next eleven weeks until in antici…pation of Simm’s return to the show, and wonder just how the Simm incarnation of the Master is going to get along with the Gomez incarnation of the Master…

…as well as wondering just how two Masters are tied up with whatever the Mondas Cybermen are up to. Still, not long to wait and now we know the last two episode titles…!

Is Bill O’Reilly a Dr Who Fan???

If you were watching the March 25th edition of The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, during the “Is It Legal?” segment with Kimberley Guilfoyle, you would have seen Bill O’Reilly use a mobile phone to illustrate one of the items in the piece….

So, who would ever have thought they would ever see Bill O’Reilly holding a Tardis-backed phone? Surely it can’t be his phone? Can it?

Maybe he borrowed it from Craig Ferguson…

Mooncrest Models Tardis Console

I have never understood why Character Options never made the classic Tardis console one of their collect-and-build sets – are you seriously trying to tell me they wouldn’t sell better than a bloody Vespiform?

Mooncrest Models have got the right idea, their Tardis Console is a thing of beauty and I hope they sell shitloads.
