The fifth episode of Series 8 is called "Time Heist." Here is a description:
Written by Steve Thompson. Directed by Douglas Mackinnon.
A Doctor Who “heist movie”. The Doctor and Clara come face to face with the mysterious Ms Delphox (Keeley Hawes) when they arrive on a strange and puzzling planet. Delphox is a powerful out-of-this-world character with a dark secret and she happens to run the most secure bank in the universe. Jonathan Bailey plays a cyborg. Features a minotaur-like monster.
Guest starring: Keeley Hawes (Ms Delphox), Jonathan Bailey, Pippa Bennett-Warner.
A Mysterious Ms. Delphox you say?
With a dark secret you say? Interesting. Now, it is completely possible that this woman is not the new Master. So maybe it is this other mysterious woman in a later episode...
the mysterious Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere, who is featured in two parter that ends Series 8 titled Dark Water/Death in Heaven. These episodes are described thusly:
A two-part finale. Features a Cybermen invasion of earth and the return of UNIT, Kate Stewart and Osgood. The Doctor also has to contend with the mysterious Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere.
So, we have two mysterious powerful women characters, with pasts we don't know and who seem very formidable. But, I can hear you know internet, saying that Steven Moffat said he was not bringing the Master back (for one example go here.) But remember children, rule 1: Moffat lies!
So enjoy Tyler, Chris and myself being wrong and enjoy the return of our favorite Time Lord, The Doctor!
DOCTOR WHO IS BACK! REJOICE!
