Unproduced Doctor Who TV stories

The Final Game was an unproduced serial intended to end Season 11. Written by Robert Sloman, it would have revealed the details of the relationship between the Doctor and the Master: either that were actually brothers or the latter Time Lord was an amalgamation of the former Time Lord's darker personality. This story originally ends with the Master's Roger Delgado incarnation sacrificing himself in some sort of explosion, with a moral dilemma that should he set off a bomb as intended, he would be killing the Doctor, his former friend.

Instead, Planet of the Spiders replaced this story, and Delgado's character was shelved until The Deadly Assassin, which recast the Master as Peter Pratt, in a decayed state.
