Long before Series 8 of Doctor Who started, there were rumors and speculation about the return of the Doctor’s old, eternal nemesis: the Master. Another Time Lord like the Doctor, the Master has been around on the show for decades, with all sorts of evil, sneaky, chaotic schemes.
The Master returned in recent years to be the one other Time Lord not trapped in the time-lock that holds in the Time War. That meant he was even more free to release his schemes on the universe – especially because the Doctor, the one person who could probably stop him, didn’t expect him.
He showed back up, was a connection to the Time Lords, who were manipulating him to return to the universe… and we now know the Time Lords could actually come back, so anything is possible! So even with the Master seemingly defeated and gone, I imagine that’s happened before in the past, and we should never consider him dead and gone. So the stage is set for the return of the Master – so what could happen with him? Thoughts and opinions to follow!
