Return of the Master?

With the Doctor Who rumour mill stuck in a state of perpetual overdrive, the latest slice of tabloid tittle-tattle warns of the Master’s imminent return. Just days after the Daily Star reported that Russell T Davies would like Britney Spears to cameo as an alien, a story in the Sun claims that John Simm is favourite to play the Doctor’s nemesis.

Apparently “an insider” said, “[Simm]’s brilliant and we would love to get him on board,” which seems rather tenuous to us. Indeed, we’ll be taking both stories with a rather large pinch of salt until we hear anything concrete.
