That reveal! 😳
Took me ages to figure out what was going on.

I was not expecting that. Normally can see the master coming but that was a proper twist.

I wasn’t expecting it! Really well done!

Came on here to find a thread, and was just about to start one, in previous years there would have already been one many pages long.

I was surprised by that reveal, coming as it did at the end of quite a crazy story line. That motor bike ride was just too much!

But I thought he was dead?

He's never dead grin

SciFiScream Wed 01-Jan-20 20:11:27

I knew the character was off from the start but didn't see the twist!

Binglebong Wed 01-Jan-20 20:16:07

Sorry, I was bored stiff. Had been looking forward to it too. sad

moglovesmincepies Wed 01-Jan-20 20:17:23

That was brill! Really got its mojo back!
We really enjoyed it

I was disappointed by S11, and was missing the previous scriptwriters.

This was an improvement and I found it quite entertaining. I had not predicted the reveal at the end, and I enjoy a more complicated story that isn't resolved by the end of the episode.

I thought it was going to be the chap running Vor who was the Master.

The Doctor though sad she used to have brains. She seemed so slow on the uptake.

ZeldaPrincessOfHyrule Wed 01-Jan-20 20:22:23

Just before the reveal, DH said "that guy's either evil, about to die, or another new companion."

Then BAM.

Brilliant grin

Looking forward to lots of scenery chewing on Sunday.

To be honest, I was just like what!! Couldn't understand it. Kept expecting John Simm to reveal himself (the master of disguise)

I thought it was great! Brilliant twist! And he plays it so well. Love the little mannerism references to other Masters.

I loved the Doctor deflecting the car sat-nav death ray with the mirror too.

poorbuthappy Wed 01-Jan-20 20:52:03

We loved it. Although the DTs kept saying it was very similar to Stranger Things!!!

IHateBlueLights Wed 01-Jan-20 20:55:02

I still can't get into it. Bradley is a dreadful choice and I cringe whenever he speaks.

Love Jodie normally but really can't see her as the Doctor.

I abandoned the last series and I can see that happening again.

The Master may have died in Series 10, or he may not, but if he did, remember that he ran out of regenerations in the classic series, and we only saw a couple of those, so this could be one of those. Also, the Time Lords gave him a new set of regenerations so he could help them fight the Time War, and we've only seen John Simm and Missy of those, plus his human form as Professor Yana - we don't know if there were any others before the one that fled the Time War and used the Chameleon Arch to change into Yana

Who is the actor playing The Master? IMDb isn't giving him a credit.

ShowOfHands Wed 01-Jan-20 22:01:49

Sacha Dhawan. He was brill.

HeyAssbutt Wed 01-Jan-20 22:08:50

I was so pleased with this episode! I was a bit dubious after the last series. Was a little hit and miss. But this felt like a call back to the old days (Christopher eccleston onwards for me!) Seriously did not see that reveal coming! Fantastic! I didn't know they were planning on bringing the master back and so soon in the series. This episode has restored my faith in the whole franchise. Hooray!

iklboo Wed 01-Jan-20 22:59:09

I love Sacha Dhawan. He was the best thing in Iron Fist.

SESthebrave Wed 01-Jan-20 23:57:27

Loved it! Definitely back on form and just hope the whole series is as good.

OhMsBeliever Thu 02-Jan-20 00:33:51

I didn't know the actor so googled his name and one of the suggestions was Sacha Dhawan the master. Way to spoiler myself! Although actually I was just confused and didn't get it till the moment he said it because I thought he was nice. grin I'm a bit slow on the uptake!

We all really enjoyed it. My boys are big Doctor Who fans and loved it.

We saw similarities with Stranger Things as well. But we loved ST too.

Danni12 Thu 02-Jan-20 00:37:01

Yay!!! Loved tonight's episode! Thought the last series was very poor, this was much better smile

Don't watch Dr Who but her bow tie was made by my niece.
