Is "Doctor Who" ready for the return of yet another Time Lord? According to a rumor, The Master will make his return to the series during Season 8, battling Peter Capaldi.

It all comes from Twitter, where an attendee at the Newcastle Film and Comic Con says he spoke to former Doctor Sylvester McCoy, and the actor revealed he knew who the new Master was. Naturally, as a Time Lord, the master can and does regenerate.

Another attendee says McCoy revealed the new Master will "be very scary," which is a good thing because he's a pretty terrifying being. Naturally, this isn't an official announcement and should be taken with a pinch of salt. McCoy could simply be having a little fun with the fans.

Would you be excited for the return of The Master? "Doctor Who" Season 8 premieres later in the year.
