^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Me and my emotions during writing this analysis of The Master.
Please comment on this, as I have worked hard on this "Master piece"
If you don't watch Doctor Who then simply ignore this, as I invite all of my followers
I feel like my opinion is very underrated on other parts of the internet, as I see many people hating on The Master's personality and what she is like right now. Here are a few reasons why I LIKE The Master becoming Missy.
It says something about how a character, by the hands of the writer, can change dramatically throughout the story. This was the first time a Time Lord has changed their gender on the TV show, and that really shows how far Steven Moffat can go. It wasn't just like "The Master is female now, but she's still the same" it was more like "The Master is female now, but she is going to be different. You all have to learn how to adapt to change"
I think that it really shows that the Doctor and the Master's relationship status are constantly changing. When the Master was john simm, he hated the Doctor. He wanted to kill him. The 10th doctor loved him and saw him as a childhood friend, even though they were both archenemies, he would never let the Master die by himself.
When the Master became a female, she realized this relationship and switched to the 10th Doctor's perspective on their relationship. She views the 12th Doctor the same way the 10th Doctor viewed the Master.
Now the 12th doctor doesn't want to accept Missy's side because, well, he believes that he would hate being Missy's "friend" and damage Earth beyond repair. If 10 was in this situation, he would accept it no matter how the human race, or even Gallifrey would deal about it.
I also like the Master becoming a female because it really says something- that one change can cause a lot of controversy.
I know that Missy is different from the other Masters, so what? Regenerations aren't supposed to be the same. I think when Steven Moffat enforces regenerations, he always tries to express the clear theme of change- that we all change, no matter how huge it can be. When the 11th doctor regenerated into a different regeneration with an appearance as an old man- that an example that shows how much the TV show can change over time, and how Steven Moffat brings the idea of ACTUAL change (not Rose being replaced by Donna or Martha) in Doctor Who.
For those who hate the Master right now- is it because she is NOT what you think the Master is? Well, all time lords can regenerate and change PSYCHOLOGICALLY too, the Master doesn't always have to think and view things the same every single regeneration he/she is. So what is your point? It doesn't matter much about Missy's personality- what matters is the true meaning behind it and what the writer is trying to tell us.The writing of the episodes she has been in so far might be "stupid" or "terrible" with your opinion but what really counts is what the writer is trying to make us think about.
Missy seems like a very simple character at first, but she is very complex in terms of her relationship- The Doctor and The Master have both tried to love each other and get along, but not one side has agreed with the other. And because of regeneration, these opinions change all of the time so it's harder for both of them to get along over the last centuries.
Even though the Master returning again might not be original, it's a character that's very well known, and it's great to see knowledge being added to the Master instead of making a brand new villain. In fact, if Missy wasn't the Master then I would probably not even be interested in her at all! I mean so many possibilities open up for the Master becoming a female.
So anybody that hates Missy is wrong, because of what I have just stated. I see a lot of hate on Youtube, tumblr, and other social media outlets and I wonder, why do they hate her?
