*Spoiler Alert!* A Familiar Face To Return To Doctor Who In Season 10


The Doctor and Bill


With the return of Doctor Who days away, Mofatt and crew have been trying to build up the hype for the introduction of a new companion and what will be Peter Capaldi's final season as the Doctor. At a recent press event, Steven Moffat (also in his last season as show runner), he mentioned that the teaser for episode 2 that will air at the end of the premiere episode will ""there is, frankly, an enormous spoiler, a spoiler that may actually melt your brains." Well today, the Doctor Who Facebook page posted an article that we're guessing is that brain melting spoiler.....

***SPOILER ALERT***






John Simm as The Master



That's right, John Simm is returning as The Master! Apparently we're going to get all timey-wimey and the current incarnation of the Master, aka Missy (played masterfully by Michelle Gomez...pun intended) is going to come face-to-face with a previous incarnation of herself. Having multiples of the same Time Lord together isn't something new for Doctor Who, the Doctor has met up with himself several times, but two of the Master together sounds like a recipe for destruction.

While some of us are excited, some of us are on the fence about this announcement. But we can all agree, that we can't quite figure out WHY Doctor Who announced it in a way that spoiled everyone who'd visit their Facebook page. They posted the article linked below, and even without clicking on it, you see John Simm's face and a headline that holds nothing back.

River Song would not approve....

Considering the brain melting spoiler Moffat warned out literally comes with a countdown in the teaser so you can avoid it, posting this on Facebook for all the world to see seems a bit bass-ackwards.

And if, by chance, this isn't the brain melting spoiler Moffat was referring to, then heaven knows what were in for....but you can be we'll be turning in for every single moment.
