Big Finish Doctor Who audio stories
Davros Zagreus

Master was the forty-ninth monthly Doctor Who audio story produced by Big Finish Productions. It featured the Seventh Doctor played by Sylvester McCoy and Geoffrey Beevers as the Master. This was Beevers' second audio appearance as the Master, his first being in Dust Breeding.

Publisher's summary Edit

Many years ago, on a dark and stormy night, the disfigured and enigmatic Doctor John Smith invited his closest friends, Inspector Victor Schaeffer and his wife, to a dinner to celebrate his birthday. A mere few hours later all the occupants in that house had been changed — some were dead, others mentally scarred forever by the events of that night.

So, what happened to the distinguished dinner guests on that evening? Perhaps we'll never know. But two clues have led to much speculation — found outside the study window, a charred umbrella with a curved red handle and found inside the house, a blood-stained copy of Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

For one person, this night represented an ending: an ending to one thousand years of darkness and an ending to ten years of light.

But for everyone else, is there no ending of this one night of Hell?

Master Comic Preview

Illustrated preview from DWM 336 by Martin Geraghty.

  • This story marks the first appearance of Death in an audio drama.
  • This would be the final audio drama to feature the Master until Trail of the White Worm in May 2012.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 30 and 31 July 2003 at The Moat Studios.
  • An illustrated preview by Martin Geraghty appeared in DWM 336.
  • This is the first story in any medium to feature the Master where his name is part of the title, such as The Daleks, Dalek, The Tomb of the Cybermen, or The Mark of the Rani.
  • This is the third part in a loose tetralogy of "villain"-focused stories to celebrate Doctor Who's 40th anniversary, beginning with Omega and ending with Zagreus.
  • The trailer to the story is unique; rather than using clips from the story, Geoffrey Beevers recites an original monologue for it.
