John Simm Reaffirms That He Won't Be Back For The Doctor Who Special

John Simm has confirmed that he won't be appearing as the Master in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. Speaking on the Jonathan Ross Show this evening he said that he had not heard from the producers and as shooting on the show was already underway he doubted that he was involved. 

"I didn't get the call, " he said, ruefully

John first appeared as the Master for the three-episode story arc that brought the third series of the revived Doctor Who to a close. He returned for David Tennant's final episodes, The End Of Time Parts 1 & 2. He has previously said that he would lie to return and take the Master to new, darker places.

The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode stars Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, David Tennant and Billie Piper with John Hurt, Jemma Redgrave, Joanna Page and Ingrid Oliver. Work began on the 3D special on April 1st and it is expected that it will be shown on or around the show's 50th Anniversary on Saturday 23rd November.
