OK, HUGE Doctor Who finale rumor spoiler, so seriously and for real don't read this if you want to stay unspoiled! . . . . . . . . . . MSN Entertainment UK is reporting is reporting that the finale of David Tennant's tenure with Doctor Who -- the last of the specials to be run, where he regenerates into Matt Smith -- will feature John Simm! Simm played The Master in Series 4 in the two-part finale. The Master was seen to die, but there was some ambiguity at the end of the finale. Also, that site reports that Catherine Tate, Billie Piper, and Freema Agyeman will all return as well. If you're a fan, the problems with this are obvious enough, but I hope they're treated well; I really dug Tate's performance as Donna. So there you go. As always, treat this as unsubstantiated rumor. We'll know more in the coming months. But if it's true: Woohoo! Or more precisely, Whohoo!
