The War Master Returns!

 

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!

Ninky Nonk Tardis

Here is the Ninky Nonk from In The Night Garden which is narrated by Sir Derek Jacobi!

As if having a pre-schoolers programme narrated by The Master wasn`t bizarre enough, does anything about the Ninky Nonk look… familiar…?

Or was I the only one to see this and immediately think of the Jade Pagoda Tardis from Dave MacIntee`s NA Sanctuary from years ago?

all of which can only mean one of two things: either someone on ITNG is a Who Fan or I really do need to get out more!
