And How Has Your Day Been?

So, one of my friends and I were talking a while ago, and one of the things he bitched about was my occasional pieces on Doctor Who, such as episode recaps and that.  He usually waits to watch Doctor Who with his wife, so it takes a little extra time, and he was miffed that I would write something up and spoil the episode for him.

Keep in mind, this guy can't resist spoilers.  He'll say he doesn't want things ruined for him and so on, and yet, if it's something juicy, he's the first to put the glass to the wall.

I mention this because I've got a beaut.  It's a huge spoiler about Doctor Who.  So if you (you know who you are) or anyone else wants to avoid it, I suggest you not read this entry.

Turn away.

This is your last chance.


Right.  Now that the pussies are gone, let's do this.

There have been rumors going around for a while, but nothing really solid.  Until today.  Sylvester McCoy played the 7th Doctor, and a guy calling himself Brett D just tweeted, "Sylvester McCoy just said he knows who's playing the new Master 'he'll be very scary'... (sic)"

Uh oh...the Master is coming back....

And because I know he's reading this -- please observe the, "Don't say I didn't warn you," tag.

Yeah, I saw that, too. One website even had an actor's name, although it was no one I recognized.

Alex MacQueen has been great as the new Master in the audio dramas - that is, he fits between Eric Roberts and Derek Jacobi. Sylvester worked with him on UNIT: Dominion, so maybe that's what he's referring to and people misunderstood him. Or not.

While I don't like "here's how the story ends" type spoilers, some things I don't mind.  As for insisting to know what the spoiler is, I am so much like a kitty cat, my curiosity always gets the better of me.

The Master comes back... COOL!  I still doubt anyone will ever be better than Ainsley.  (I'm not banking on the suggestion that it will be McCoy.  I'm thinking he knows the person.)

Episode recaps are, by definition, spoilers. You can't expect no one talk about certain things just because it doesn't fit your timeline.

Yeah, that was the impression I got, too. But the big spoiler was that the Master was coming back. No one know yet who will play him, but everyone's expecting an announcement from Auntie Beeb any day now.
