Capaldi and Moffat on the Master’s Gender Change
Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat have discussed the Master’s gender change.
Speaking in a clip from this weekend’s bumper Doctor Who Extra, Capaldi said: “I was delighted that the Master came back and doubly delighted that Michelle [Gomez] played the Master, because I know Michelle and knew she’d bring all her customary vigour and wit and sharpness to it.”
“She’s different from the other Masters we’ve seen because obviously she’s taken a female form.”
Moffat added: “It’s just a proper good old twist. We’ve been saying for years now, certainly since I took over, that regeneration can change your gender and that I thought is maybe the one they won’t see coming.”
