Doctor Who: Why Eric Roberts’ Master Never Returned
Former Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has now explained why he never brought back Eric Roberts as The Master. Times are changing on the BBC’s Doctor Who, with Jodie Whittaker soon to take up the mantle of the galaxy-saving hero from Gallifrey. However, there’s one phase of the Time Lord’s life that is often overlooked, despite being canon. Sometimes referred to as simply Doctor Who: The Movie, the British-American-Canadian TV film premiered in 1996 and starred Paul McGann as the 8th incarnation of The Doctor. It also featured Roberts as a manifestation of his eternal nemesis The Master. However, that wound up being the one and only time Roberts would play the character.
