Episode 96 – Complete Con Chaos

On this, our officially longest ever episode of Nerd & Tie, we celebrate Invader Zim‘s impending return, discuss John Simm’s returning as The Master on Doctor Who, lose our minds over the New Warriors television show (featuring Squirrel Girl), contemplate Rainn Wilson’s casting as Harry Mudd on Star Trek: Discovery, and speculate on the possibility of a Joss Whedon written/directed Batgirl movie.

Then we tackle the con scene, where Angry Goat Productions continues to do things that are absolutely insane, and AnachroCon’s management seems to have devolved into complete anarchy. We also talk about the great time we had at Karoshi Con, and look forward to No Brand Con.

Plus, y’know, there’s a mailbag. This episode is just full of stuff.

John Simm Will Reprise His Role as The Master in ‘Doctor Who’ Series 10

In a turn of events I’m sure most of us didn’t expect, John Simm will be stepping back into the role of The Master this upcoming series of Doctor Who. Simm last played the character in 2010, during David Tennant’s final story as The Doctor.

Michelle Gomez took over the part a couple of series ago, and will also appear this series. She’s not leaving the part any time soon though, as Simm’s Master will appear via time travel. In all likelihood we’re getting a multiple Master story, and that’s probably one of the more exciting things I could think of. Gomez and Simm are both phenomenal at chewing the scenery, and putting them both onscreen together is probably my favorite idea ever.

Doctor Who returns to the air April 15th, with the story featuring The Master(s) later in the series.
