Hold on, didn't Terror of the Autons establish that the Doctor and the Master had a history prior to Terror of the Autons? -- Tybort (talk page) 17:49, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
No, it said they used to be at school together. --Revan\Talk 18:32, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
My mistake, but that still leaves the "knew each other" bit as inaccurate, yes? -- Tybort (talk page) 18:43, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
No as The End of Time, Master and Divided Loyalties all show that the Doctor and the Mast were friends who played together in their youth and attended the Academy together. --Revan\Talk 19:17, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry I wasn't being clear (I definitely muddled things by saying "had a history"), but I meant that this novel clearly doesn't "establish[...] that the Doctor knew the Master prior to Terror of the Autons and they had known each other prior to this story" as the lead says. As all of the stories you mentioned post-date The Dark Path, I'm a bit confused by the point of that.
But still, Terror of the Autons says they went to school together, ergo Terror of the Autons establishes that the Doctor and Master know each other from before Terror of the Autons. Did I get that right? -- Tybort (talk page) 19:29, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah that's right, and authors have fleshed the reference out some more and built up more to their history together. --Revan\Talk 19:32, June 19, 2012 (UTC)
I totally forgot about what specifically was said in Terror of the Autons. All I wanted to say in the intro was basically what Revan's just said. I've taken another stab at the intro, sorry for the confusion. --Tangerineduel / talk 16:33, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
