What was Sacha Dhawan’s highlight in his tenure of the Master so far? He said:
“Recording the reveal – that ‘O’ was in fact the Master in disguise – was my highlight of being in Doctor Who,” says Sacha Dhawan. “It was so special because no one apart from [executive producers] Chris [Chibnall] and Matt [Strevens] had seen how I was going to play it, so it was the crew who got to see that first switch of me becoming the Master. They’ve seen so many actors come in and out playing the Doctor and the Master, so I really trusted their opinion. They were incredibly encouraging and supportive. Everyone was, especially Jodie."
