Paul McGann recommends Game of Thrones star for Master role

The Master’s possible return remains a hot topic among Doctor Who fans and stars alike.

Eighth Doctor Paul McGann had an interesting casting suggestion for the role of The Master.

He told Flicks and the City that Game of Thrones star Charles Dance would be “great” in bringing the Master back to life in the series:

“He’s still got a twinkle in his eye. I don’t know where he gets it from, but he’s always had it…he’d bring great gravitas and old fashioned charm…. 

“The Master is never going to go away, is he? Rather like the Doctor himself he can take any guise, so I suppose he could look like an ageing roué from the depths of space.”
