No, definately not a female Master. Or female Doctor for that matter. I don't understand why so many people would want to see that. I think it would be awful.

I like the ideas for Ian McKellan and Alan Rickman. I think both would be wonderful. I also think Mckellan would make a wonderful Toymaker if they ever brought the character back

I hadn't thought about McKellan as the Toymaker, but there is something about him reminiscent of Michael Gough.

I know it is probably type-casting (and I don't suggest for a moment that he dons his "Lucius Malfoy Silver Wig"). But I do think Jason Issacs would do a real job opposite Matt Smith.

That would be absolute genius casting. I bet he would do it, too. He did Corrie a few years back.

Just thought I would give this thread a little boost - not, perhaps for series 7, but as we approach the 50th anniversary celebrations, it is almost inconceivable that the Master will not return in some form or another..... or is it?

Given the scale of guest star that the show now seems to be able to attract, Jason Issacs as the Master now seems eminently achievable...

But just for the "hell" of it, what about Mark Shepperd? What if Canton were to "do a Tremas"? Or would it be too similar to his role as Crowley? (I personally think it would)

Benedict Cumberbatch an obvious choice but ... too obvious?

Who could play the Doctor's Arch Enemy and confound and delight in the way the John Simm did with David Tennant? Or do we want a return to a more "elegant" Master - who could be the suave and debonair villain?

I think Jason Isaacs would be perfect as a suave debonair Master, but I suspect he might want something else after so many years as a suave debonair villain in HP.

I think you're right - Issacs suffers from the same fate as Mark Shepperd. Essentially they have been playing a version of the Master in their "day jobs".

I wonder if some "off the wall" casting isn't needed - perhaps Peter Firth (Harry Pearce off Spooks) might work?

If we were going with off the wall castings I think Eddie Izzard would make an interesting choice. Just saying

That is exactly the type of idea I like Smiley the best casting for the Master is the unexpected one. And while we're at it....

What about Lara Pulver? I imagine a female master would add a wonderfully different dynamic!

Oh haven't you heard? She's the next Doctor after Matt leaves Grin

I don't think I'd be a big fan of a female Master, mostly because I'd like the new Master to have the beard again. However, the Doctor did say that the Corsair changed genders, so I suppose it's possible, but I feel like it just wouldn't feel right.

On the note of people who would play a good Master, I think we need to go for a more unknown actor. From what I've seen, they seem to be the golden actors that we remember.

I can see the appeal of an unknown (although Roger Delgado, Anthony Ainley were experienced, reputable actors and John Simm was a household name) and it certainly worked with Moriarty in Sherlock. If anyone can find an unknown Master, it will be Moffat who seems to have something of a golden touch with casting (e.g. Matt Smith, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Scott, Lou Brealey)

True. I wouldn't put it past Moffat to already be on the hunt for a new master, even if he won't appear for awhile. He tends to be prepared for these things.
