He does, but I think he might be a bit intense for the Master.  He needs to have a light, ironic touch.

I agree. Irons would be brillant as a one-off baddy though  Cool

the master will return, the only reason he was never killed as originally planned was due to the car crash that sadly took roger delgado from us, he is as synonimous with doctor who as the daleks or the cybermen.

they won't bring him back as a woman the rani is in the wings if they want a timelady.
maybe they could rest him and use the meddling monk first, maybe save the master for the 50th anniversary.

and to play him well Alan rickman springs to mind, but may not work because of the snape association.

but James Nesbitt however well he was magnificently dark in Jekyl......

This might be too much of a cliche and pandering but I'll tell you what, Mark Shepperd absolutely rocked my socks as Canton 3. I might have seen it in another thread here (apologies for not crediting, its my ageing mind) but wouldn't he be a treat as the Master

Gary Oldman. I want him in the show.

As the Master, as the 12th Doctor, as a homeless guy on the street, I don't care.

He needs to be in the show.

Nobody fancy seeing Jonathan Pryce as The Master again?
 Wink

Seriously though, that part would be perfect for Sean Pertwee (dream casting).

The way I see it, if they can get Jacobi & Gambon, they can get anyone, provided the script is right.

What about Robert Carlyle? He's free now, right?

You know what, a totally left field thought just occurred to me.
Pierce. Brosnan. How against type would that be?

Trouble is (absolute pie in the sky I know) but I'd love Brosnan as the Doctor. I can actually see how amazing he'd be in my mind. It'll never happen so I'm happy to play it out in my head. But how fantastic would he be!

I think Brosnan would be awesome - he would play the Doctor in just the right way. I'm not going to get too heated though because it is the most unlikely thing in the world. There is probably more chance of casting an actual time lord as the Doctor

Well we did already have one Bond on board. Maybe they could get Brosnan VS Dalton in a Time-Lord-Off Tongue

I still wouldnt want Brosnan though Tongue

Whilst I accept, technically, that Dalton was Bond, he was no Pierce Brosnan. Me and Exterminate need to clear off to the Leisure Hive to slug this one out Wink

Well you never know. I expected Dalton be awful but (spit aside) he was ok. Perhaps Brosnan would surprise me

I think Sir Ian McKellen would make an absolutely brilliant Master, personally. He does both the English gentleman and diabolical maniac very well, and I think a name like his attached to the series would bring back even the must butthurt and snobby of angry Tennant fangirls.

I think Doctor Who is now big enough to have any actor that takes the fancy of the casting department. 

Looking at who has been in it recently, we have big names like Katherine Jenkins, Alex Kingston, Michael Gambon, Timothy Dalton, Derek Jacobi, Hugh Bonneville, Kylie Minogue, Suranne Jones, John Simm, Michelle Ryan, Meera Syal, Anthony Head, Lee Evans, Mark Gatiss, James Corden, Bernard Cribbins, June Whitfield, Maureen Lipman, Pauline Collins, Tony Curran, Sophia Myles, Ardal O'Hanlon, Sophie Okonedo, Annette Crosbie, Nina Wadia, Fenella Woolgar, Felicity Kendal, Sarah Lancashire, Hugh Quarshie and that's just off the top of my head...

So, for the Master, Hugh Grant would provide a new twist (which we should get with a new regeneration) but not sure he could pull off 'confident timelord'.  OK, maybe that idea was caused by it being too early in the morning after a sleepless night, and not having had a coffee yet - ignore Hugh Grant...

I also love the Tim Curry idea already mentioned, I think he'd be perfect.

Sir Ian McKellen would probably be too old for a Master fresh from regeneration, and even Pierce Brosnan possibly couldn't pretend to be a young Master brimming to vitality and confidence.  The Bond reference, however, put me in mind of Daniel Craig - could he do it, possibly...?

Failing that, Vin Diesel or Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson could add a whole new dimension to the character, and I don't mean just an American accent...

Except Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson can't act. It would be Eric Roberts all over agian.

I like the Ian McKellan idea. I don't think he is too old. He seems like he is still very capable and there is no reason why the actor has to be young.

As for Hugh Grant, I can't imagine him playing the Master, but he was offered the part of the Doctor when it was returning in 2005, but he turned it down at the last minute and it went to Christopher Eccleston instead. He has since said that he wishes he had taken it now. I think he would be better suited to the Doctor role than the Master, but I wouldnt particularly want him in either

And McKellan showed when he appeared in a soap of all things that he is prepared to do anything. Sadly he's going to be very busy for the foreseeable future with The Hobbit but I'm loving that idea.

As I also love the idea of Alan Rickman - think he's great in whatever he does.

Another passing thought I had is Rupert Graves - possibly best known at the mo as Inspector Lestrade in Sherlock he does in fact more often play the bad guy. He's another actor I like so I just thought I'd throw him into the mix.

I hadn't even thought of Alan Rickman. He would be amazing as the Master.

How about Rowan Atkinson, then he can be the only man to have played The Doctor AND The Master...?  Grin

My Wife just suggested that the next Master should be female, and played by Joanna Lumley, which would certainly be interesting...
