DOCTOR Who comes face to face with James Bond in David Tennant's "farewell" Christmas episodes. Bond actor Timothy Dalton, 63 who starred in The Living Daylights and Licence to Kill - guests in the final story as The Narrator. David, 38 tells Radio Times: "Timothy was lovely. He had the panache and the skill of a movie star, without any alarming eccentricities or peculiar demands.

"At one point, he was singing the Doctor Who theme tune to me as I sang the James Bond theme to him."


But the biggest shock is the return of John Simm, 39, as The Master — the Doctor's fellow Time Lord and arch nemesis who was killed off two years ago. Show supremo Russell T Davies said: "It's personal for the Doctor.

"The Master is his enemy, his opposite, and yet so tantalisingly close to being his soulmate — the last two survivors of an ancient race.

"It's a clash of the titans — both of them heading for death, yet determined to survive at any cost."

John adds: "This is a Master who's lived and died. He's desperate — and desperate means dangerous."
