John Simm had enough of Doctor Who fans

Tuesday May 28, 2013

The Village star John Simm has said that he is fed up with the attention he gets from Doctor Who fans.

The Life On Mars actor played the Master in five episodes of the BBC One sci-fi show.

He told the Radio Times: "I do get a lot of Doctor Who. I'll be so happy when that's gone from my life. They're lovely, I'm sure, but I won't miss it."

He added: "It's great to be into something, but for goodness' sake, really? I'm not the Master, I'm not that evil Time Lord who rules the galaxy, I'm just in Tesco with my kids. Leave me alone!"

The father-of-two said that he hated attending award ceremonies - and not because he may have been snubbed by judges.

He said: "I've always found that whole thing really weird. You're not that bothered about it, because acting's not a competition. It's all subjective.”
