Maybe they got the master mixed up with the Joker.

Well, I DO think a female Master sucks ass. Sorry, I'm sure it's terribly unPC of me but I think it's absolute shit - and I think it's an entirely deliberately move to enable the PC police to cut off the Doctor's bollocks sooner or later too.
Twas the last straw for me... and I couldn't be happier really! :D

I'd actually be alright with a female Master if they at least gave it a half-decent explanation....Or even a regeneration.

But no, it's just "Surprise! He's a woman now! Oh wait he's dead again."

Is it true they filmed an alternate version where it turned out to be the Rani? Just in case it leaked and they could change her identity last minute?

My Husband heard this, no idea where from.

At least us Luddites have the Doctor fighting our corner now. :)

I also suspect that Derren Brown might actually BE the Master. Think about it, he can actually hypnotise people and has a goatee beard sometimes. If people start showing up shrunken then i'll know I was right.

Love how he shoots down Gatiss over having a new screwdriver for marketing purposes. I really like Peter. He sees the bigger picture and I do feel he really wants to try turn things around.

Pity they will likely give him shitter scripts to make him go for his insubordination.

I wonder how much sway Capaldi has. There are other reports of him getting them to cut down on the emotive crap, and the look of pure horror when Missy kissed him seems more like his own reaction than coming from the NuWho crew.

I just hope he doesn't get sacked for being difficult and too old-school. It's nice to have someone on our side for a change. I know it's never going to be like Classic Who again, but the little touches can at least make it more enjoyable.

Capaldi needs to crack some skulls, wring some necks. He needs to go full Hartnell.

I read another part of this interview in the 'paper' metro today. They had capaldi talking about being a sex symbol... I'm not sure the poor guy was particularly comfy with the subject.

I think the show could live without Michelle Gomez as Missy though, which is as much to do with her 'John Simm after a case of Special Brew' performance in the role as seeing the character changing gender simply as a publicity stunt.
