This follows of course speculation of other rumored possible casting for The Master such as Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch which Matt Smith dismissed in February. It would however seem like a no-brainer that The Master would return in the person of someone next year for the big 50th Anniversary, but who will wield the Laser Screwdriver or the Tissue Compression thingy probably remains known only to Steven Moffat for now.In reply to many, regardless of what it says on imdb, No i'm not returning to Dr Who. Got absolutely no plans to do so
