I can remember the days when the famous Doctor, he was waging a Time War, battling Sea Devils, and Axons, he sealed the Rift at the Medusa Cascada, single-handed. And look at him now! How did he ever come to this? Oh yes! Me!

Doctor Who Episode 12 The Sound Of Drums

The penultimate episode of Doctor Who came last Saturday with a bang as it was yet another fantastic episode. The main highlight of the episode has to be John Simms brilliant acting as The Master. The story followed on from The Doctor's, Martha's and Captain Jacks sticky situation at the end of the episode Utopia but off course thanks to Captain Jacks so called Space Hopper they manged to escape. They return to planet earth to find that Harold Saxon has been elected the prime minster of Great Britain. But in fact Mr Saxon is The Master. Mr Saxon explains to the world that finally Planet Earth will take its place in the universe as a new species are heading to earth, The Toclafane. But of course this made up species are not all that they seem. The story goes on following the trio as they work out what to do to stop The Master. As well as all this The Doctor also talks about his home Gallifrey and the academy which surprisingly made The Master who he is. Captain Jack also reveals a secret off his own that he works for Torchwood which fans off the Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood will already know about. Overall i would give this episode a 9.5/10

Doctor Who Episode 11 Utopia

Utopia has to be the best way to describe episode 11 of Doctor Who series 3. Why? well apart from probably the best script and most action packed episode of series 3 it also saw the return of two old faces Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and The Master (Derek Jacobi and John Simm). Jack's return to Doctor Who was a brilliant display of humour and amazing acting. Whereas the great Derek Jacobi (Professor Yana, The Master) and John Simm's short display of The Master are truly to be admired. The basic story line see's the Tardis with its hitchhiker on board (Jack) being flung into the far future to the end of the universe where Gallaxys have collapsed and one man fights to save his people.
Though of course this one man The Professor is not all that he seems. This story also features a enemy known as The Fututrekind who are believed to be the future for all those stuck and waiting to go to Utopia. As well of all this we also had some exciting flashbacks of Rose, Captain Jack, The Face Of Boe's final words and of course them exciting scenes of The Doctor becoming human. Overall I would give this episode a 9.5/10.

A Bit About John

Well since i will soon be posting quite a lot of information on the wonderful John Simm I'd thought I'd start off with some interesting information and back story on him.(Information below tooken from Wikipedia).

Simm was born in Leeds, West Yorkshire and grew up in Nelson, Lancashire. His father, Ronald, was a local musician who taught him to play guitar. John would join his father on stage in the working men’s clubs playing the guitar, he made his debut singing Elvis's Wooden Heart, and they called themselves 'Us2'. He carries his father's name, Ronald, as his middle name.

In the 90s, the band John played guitar in, Magic Alex (named after The Beatles' electrician) toured with Echo and the Bunnymen on two tours, and also sang backing vocals on an album by Echo and the Bunnymen singer Ian McCulloch. He also made his TV debut in 1992 with a role in the TV series Rumpole of the Bailey.He starred in Boston Kickout and won the Best Actor award at the Valencia Film Festival.
In 1997 John starred in the first series of the critically acclaimed and often controversial The Lakes, a BBC series written by Jimmy McGovern. In 1999 he starred in the second series of The Lakes as well as appearing in Human Traffic and Wonderland.
In 2000 he starred in the opening episode of the acclaimed drama Clocking Off written by Paul Abbott, who he would later work with again for the award-winning political thriller series State of Play.
In 2002 he featured in the film 24 Hour Party People as enigmatic New Order frontman Bernard Sumner. It was also this year that he played Raskolnikov in the BBC adaptation of Crime and Punishment which is also his favourite book. At a live concert in Finsbury Park the same year, Simm sang "Digital" onstage with New Order.
In 2004 he played a researcher and investigator for a charity in a Channel 4 drama Sex Traffic, the hard hitting drama that follows the plight of two young Moldovan sisters sold into sexual slavery.

He recently starred as Detective Inspector Sam Tyler in the popular 2006 BBC series Life on Mars in which he played a police officer apparently sent back in time to 1973. The second series began on BBC One on February 13, 2007. The show won the Pioneer Audience Award for Best Programme at the 2007 BAFTA TV Awards, although Simm lost out on the award for Best Actor.In March 2007, he appeared on Channel 4 in The Yellow House, a biographical drama produced by talkbackTHAMES about the lives of artists Vincent van Gogh (Simm) and Paul Gauguin (John Lynch).
In February 2007, it was reported that Simm was to appear in the third (current) series of the BBC science fiction series Doctor Who as the Master. Simm himself on the Simon Mayo radio programme on Five Live on March 22, 2007, confirmed he would appear on Doctor Who as "Mr Saxon". He made his first appearance on the June 16, 2007 episode, "Utopia", where he appeared as the Master, a recurring enemy of the Doctor, following Derek Jacobi's brief portrayal of the character.
In April 2007, it was announced that Simm would resume the role of Cal McCaffrey in the second series of State of Play, with Bill Nighy also returning to the show although Simm has said himself that he would not be reprising the role. It is not known if the likes of David Morrissey and Philip Glenister will return to the show.
He will reunite with his Life on Mars co-star Philip Glenister— with whom he also appeared in Clocking Off and State of Play—in the forthcoming 1980s-set crime film Tuesday, in which the pair play bank robbers. Upon the announcement of the film, Glenister joked that he and Simm were contractually obliged to work with each other once a year.
