Doctor Who: would Star Trek’s William Shatner make a good Master? | Radio Times

“Is The Master coming back? Who knows?” said Matt Smith last night at the launch of the Doctor Who Christmas special. It’s one of many questions surrounding next year’s 50th anniversary.

But if the Doctor’s arch nemesis did return to wish him happy birthday and destroy the world, who would play him?

John Simm is the most recent actor to fill the role of the evil Time Lord but if he was to regenerate who would Smith like to see take his place?

“We’d love to have William Shatner on Doctor Who I’m sure. He’s a sci-fi God! He’d be great,” Smith told Getty, before adding “John Simm is pretty damn good in the role, though”.

And the answer is… no.  As much as I like Shatner (he can be VERY funny), I don’t think he’s right for The Master.  Plus I doubt he could do an English accent.  However, Sir Patrick Stewart, now there’s an idea.  Stewart would be a GREAT Master! Or any other role they could get him for! — JM, Bitch with Wi-Fi
