Re: As for the Master

I really like that idea, too. Doesn't necessarily have to be Clara but it's a great potential idea to be used any time down the road.

To make it all the better, make it somehow The Doctor's fault The Master chose to take over his companion's body.

Re: As for the Master

Cumberbatch as the Master would have worked best with Smith. If he's too different in physical age from the Doctor, it doesn't seem to work as well. Delgado and Pertwee, Ainley and Baker, Simm and Tennant. They're all sort of reflections of the other.

If we get a Master to go up against Capaldi's Doctor, hmm... I dunno... Hugh Laurie is too similar. Stephen Fry is too... well, too Stephen Fry.

Maybe someone like Michael Kitchen. Or Gary Oldman. Yeah.

That's why I think it would work.

Hugh Laurie would make a freaking awesome Master or Valeyard! But no beard. No beard.

If he wasn't already in the 50th, John Hurt could have been a good choice.

If we get a female Master then I'd want a male Rani to balance things out. : P

Re: As for the Master

This is just a little out there... But what about Colin Baker?

"What! His face! Why the hell do I have HIS FACE!? Am I subconsciously trying to send myself a message? NEVER! I must have HIS FACE because I am superior to him in every way!"

In ancient Rome, there was only 15 names (for the upper classes I'm assuming?), which were arranged into different combinations of 4 of those names to delineate family, position and identity.

Maybe there is a serious limit of faces if Regeneration is much more artificial than we have been lead to be believe?

Littlefinger as the Master would be pretty damn perfect casting.

Well, not exactly. They had a very limited list of praenomina (first names), but not so short. Then they had nomina (clan names), and cognomina (started as nicknames to distinguish people with the same praenomen and nomen, but ended up being inherited as family names inside a clan). So later on the added agnomina, to distinguish people with the same preanomen, nomen, and cognomen.

Re: As for the Master

What about Steve Coogan? He's always stood out to me since he played Hades in the Percy Jackson adaptation. As lukewarm as the movie was I thought he had the most entertaining parts.

Re: As for the Master

I don't think the Master would realise he had The Doctor's face if Colin played him, given how much he's changed since 1986. Not that I would want Colin to play him.

Re: As for the Master

Much as I wanted Alex Siddig to play the Doctor, I think he'd make a great Master too, although casting a black/asian actor or a woman would provoke cries of "Oh not good enough to be the Doctor but they can be the bad guy" although personally I think it would be a good intro into the 13th Doctor maybe being of ethnic origin.
