A villain returns for David Tennant’s ‘Doctor Who’ finale

News out of this past weekend San Diego Comic-Con failed to bring us the rumored word of a big-screen Doctor Who movie with outgoing TV series star David Tennant, but it did confirm casting speculation for his final episodes, due this Christmas. (Spoilers ahead.)

The Master and Lucy

John Simm will return as the Master, a renegade Time Lord who, like the Doctor, survived his race’s extinction. The character, a staple of the long-running British science fiction series, appeared to die at the end of the relaunched series’ third season, but returns along with his human “wife,” British first lady Lucy Saxon (Alexandra Moen), the BBC confirmed Monday.

Joining them will be former 007 actor Timothy Dalton as “the Narrator,” as well as comedian Catherine Tate, who played the Doctor’s last companion Donna Noble in season four, and Bernard Cribbins, who played her grandfather Wilfred Mott and will reportedly be the Doctor’s primary TARDIS passenger leading up to his 10th regeneration in December.
