John Simm as The Master stands in front of the TARDIS

John Simm has been forced to deny he's returning to Doctor Who, after the IMDB reported that he was back playing the Master for series seven.


"In reply to many," he Tweeted, "regardless of what it says on imdb, No i'm not returning to Dr Who. Got absolutely no plans to do so #hopethatclearsitup."


Simm's IMDB page has now been rectified, with its latest entry being the currently filming Michael Winterbottom film, Seven Days.


So, what have we learned? That the IMDB is sometimes wrong and that John Simm isn't going to be Mastering this year. Neither is he returning as Sam Tyler in a movie version of Life on Mars, nor joining the cast of Hollyoaks or headlining the Cambridge Folk Festival this year. Hope that's cleared that up.
