Doctor Who thing of the day: William Shatner as the Master?

Star Trek William Shatner

Apparently Matt Smith thinks William Shatner would make a great Master. From Radio Times:

“Is The Master coming back? Who knows?” said Matt Smith last night at the launch of the Doctor Who Christmas special. It’s one of many questions surrounding next year’s 50th anniversary.

“We’d love to have William Shatner on Doctor Who I’m sure. He’s a sci-fi God! He’d be great,” Smith told Getty, before adding “John Simm is pretty damn good in the role, though”.

Fortunately, Steven Moffat quashed that idea:

Steven Moffat agreed: “I love William Shatner but John Simm is The Master… John Simm would beat [Shatner] up if he thought he was going to take that part.”

Do you like the idea of Shatner as the Master? If not Shatner, who would make a good Master? Besides Benedict Cumberbatch, obviously…
