I don't agree, in DW there's more freedom to reinvent characters because of regeneration. The master is like a rival to the doctor which is a really good trope, but if they get boring they do a new incarnation and change their personality so it's not necessarily just bringing an old character back. Whereas I think new SW films sometimes just rip specific scenes off and bring the exact same characters back to drive the plot, with mixed success. But this ideally you want every master and doctor to be different enough and still have the same dynamic.
