Simm: “I’m not the Master… Leave me alone!”

the-master-the-end-of-time-hoodUPDATE: John Simm has claimed he has been misquoted.

He wrote on his Twitter account: “The Radio Times has really done a number on me re Dr Who ‘quote’. Thanks for that! Suffice to say It was taken out of context AGAIN.

“I haven’t done an interview for them for many years, because of this. Nasty, spiteful, trouble causing ‘Journalism’. I meant no disrespect to ‘Whovians’ or whoever. It’s a non story. I always try to be polite to fans and am v proud of my time in the show. You can choose to believe what you like but I really meant no offence. I’ve obviously p***ed off some bored journalist coz I wouldn’t do an interview.”

“Stopped doing print interviews a while ago coz of this, if you see one its either old or thrown together. TV Radio or here. rest is bulls***. And I don’t fkin shop in Tesco. (BUT THAT’S NOTHING AGAINST TESCO) ;)”

Original Story:

Are you still hoping John Simm will be back as the Master? Perhaps it’s time to stop pestering him…

Simm told the Independent: “I do get a lot of Doctor Who [fans]. God almighty, I’ll be so happy when that’s gone from my life. They’re lovely, I’m sure, but I won’t miss it.”

“It’s great to be into something, but for goodness’ sake, really? I’m not the Master, I’m not that evil Time Lord who rules the galaxy, I’m just in Tesco with my kids. Leave me alone!”
