io9 Publishes "Spoiler" Image

Administrator - Posted on 16 June 2009

An anonymous source has provided io9 an image which appears to be a video still grab (as the image appears to be interlaced). 

We will avoid the spoiler information here. It does confirm at least one casting rumour we have reported on recently in Doctor Who: Podshock. It also confirms another casting/character rumour that has been long bandied about concerning the climax of the 2009 specials.

The article on io9 by Charlie Jane Anders also mentions the title of the one of the actors pictured and the character's wardrobe lends credence that the title may be true as well. If so, it opens up other possibilities and confirms what many have been conjuring over the last few years.

All of this may seem vague, as we are avoiding any spoilers here. If you are curious, you are free to visit the io9 article. Please be warned, the article and one the images there fall into the spoiler category. If you are trying to avoid spoilers, do not visit the link below.

Kind of wish I hadn't looked at that. Major spoiler ... either confirms you wildest wish and/or your worst nightmare, depending on how you look at things. Oh, well.

GREAT BIG YAWN. I hated Simms as the Master and figure I'll hate this ENTIRE story too. Can't wait until Matt Smith's era gets fully underway.

Well as long as you've got an open mind, that's the main thing...Innocent

It's Simm, by the way, not Simms.

The line up looks cracking to me, but then I like RTD's stuff. Arise Lord Davies of Mumbles say I.

It's nice to be important, but it's important to be nice.

Well since his name is Simm and it was (if you watched the confidential) obvious that most of that charactization was a directorial choice....  Get over it, very tired of your default reply.

The Sun reports a story with the same picture, but the focus of the story is Timothy Dalton appearing in the show.
