Master Poster by ginovanta Master Poster by ginovanta

A personal tribute to the Doctor's "Best Enemy" and my favourite Adversary, the rogue time lord Known universally as "The Master".
I tryied to include every known incarnation, including the Geoffrey Beevers' and Alex MacQueen versions from Big Finish' audios and the Gordon Tipple one extermianted by the Daleks at the beginning of the 1996 movie (wich probably is also the Basil Rathbonesque one featured in the Virgin new adventures book "First Frontier"); i sadly could not add the one from the comic book story "the Glorious Dead",but i incuded the Masters' Tardis in the form of the Melkur from "The Keeper of traken" instead.

P.S. a special thanks to Mr Clayton Hickman himself who allowed me to use the Beevers master likeness he devised for the cover of Big Finish' audio "Master"

6. Anthony Ainley
7. John Simm
8. Eric Roberts

Not including William Hughes and Gordon Tipple as it wouldn't be fair since they aren't well known.

Yeah, but what would you expect out of the Master being a complete psychopath? Though I agree with you. And roger delgado will be the first appearance, and best incarnation of the Master (he can kill somebody with a blank look on his face).

Brilliant! For me, Delgado is THE Master and I'm glad you've placed him in a prominent position in this picture. Great job.

Love this.  Most of all I love the fact you put Delgado front and centre.  Although Missy has quickly become my second favourite, I think I'll always regard the original as the best.

Here's some trivia.

According to the BBC, technically the Peter Pratt/Geoffrey Beevers (Both Beevers') are the same incarnation as Roger Delgado's Master. Delgado got blown up, and burned, becoming Pratt/Beevers (Bottom), then stole the body of Ainley, then lost Ainley and became Beevers (Top) again.

I believe the order of Masters is:
William Hughes: 1st
Roger Delgado/Peter Pratt/Geoffrey Beevers: 13th
Ainley: Technically 13th, but different body
Tipple: 14th
Roberts: Technically 14th, different body again
McQueen: 15th
Jacobi: 16th
Simm: 17th
and Gomez: 18th

By the way after Big FInish released "The Two Master" whe know that Delgado isn't the master's final incarnation anymore...don't know if you've listened to it so i won't say much but if you havent't do it as soon as you can,it's great :D

Yeah, I found that out too, so I guess Delgado was the 12th, making Beevers/Pratt the 13th. Also a recent Multi-Doctor comic involving Doctors, 10, 11 and 12, also had a brief flash back to the Time War, with the War Doctor and the War Master fighting side by side. In the Time War, the Master had the body of a child, and when he ran away and used his chameleon arch to turn himself into the human Professor Yana, Yana had said that he had been found as an abandoned naked child on the coast of the Silver Devastation, so presumably, the War Master and Jacobi's Yana Master are actually the same incarnation. War Master fled, turned himself human, aged like a normal human being, until he got his mind back, but now he was an old man instead of a child.

But is the war master supposed to be a regeneration of macqueen's?Are they part of the second cycle given to him by the time lords?
Reply
:iconjjws92:
JJWS92 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2016  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes he is/was. The Time Lords knew the Time War was imminent, so they resurrected the Master, after he got sucked into the Doctor's TARDIS's Eye of Harmony, in the Eighth Doctor movie. The Master's resurrection, resulted in MacQueen, with a whole new set of regenerations. Somehow the MacQueen Master died, and regenerated into a child, by the time of the Time War, and presumably that child incarnation is the same one as Jacobi/Yana, just grown old. Michelle Gomez is technically the new Fourth Master, just like Peter Capaldi, despite being called the Twelfth Doctor, is actually the new Second, out of his regeneration cycle.

He's the first regeneration in the new cycle, not the first incarnation. William Hartnell was the First Doctor, Patrick Troughton was the First Regeneration, Second Incarnation. With the new cycle, Matt Smith is the new First, and Peter Capaldi is the new Second. It actually lines up with the Doctor's numbers, 11=1, 12=2, 13=3 and so on, and should there be a Doctor 23, he'd be the new 13.

no no...smith is the last incarnation of the first cycle,the cycle starts after the regeneration not before O_o....the fact smith rejuvenates is only a temporary effect of the regeneration energy

We'll never know how many Masters there are exactly, but most sources say that Delgado was the 13th, and Pratt/Beevers are the same incarnation just burned.

It's a good as we may ever know, since Time Lords history is for the most part unknown, especially individual Time Lords like the Doctor, the Master, Rassilon and Omega. Some canon says that the Doctor was born to two Time Lords, others say he was more or less cloned from Time Lord genetic pools called Looms, like Kryptonian birthing matrixes, in some Superman birthing origins. Some even say that the Doctor was born from the Loom the third Time Lord forefather, named the Other, threw himself into after Rassilon supposedly murdered Omega, making the Doctor the Other's reincarnation, not just a regeneration. We'll never truely know anything important about the Time Lords.

That has been suggested too, but some expanded universe stories say he was a different incarnation.

Some say he was another body that the Master stole like Tremas (Anthony Ainley) or Bruce Gerhardt (Eric Roberts), others say that the Ainley Master managed to find a way to purge not only the Cheetah Virus he contracted from "Survival", but also Tremas' remaining Trakenite dna, making the Master a pure Time Lord again, giving him at least a few, new regenerations, just in time for the Doctor's companion, Ace McShane, to shoot the Master in the back, making him regenerate into Gordon Tipple's master, described as resembling, famous Sherlock Holmes actor, Basil Rathbone.

But there are those who say he was just a standin for the Ainley Master, which is why the stolen body of Bruce had the Yellow Eyes, because of the Cheetah Virus, though it could be his eyes were from the Death Worm Morphant the Master had tied his consciousness to when he was Exterminated by the Daleks.

I Thought That The Peter Pratt/ Geoffrey Beevers Master was The Master's (14th) failed regeneration from Roger Delgardo
and yeah i thought that The Master after getting sucked into the eye of harmony was split into 3 splinters

The Gas Essences Master from MasterMind was one- perhaps with energy from The Eye of Harmony reverted  his dna to The Geoffrey Beevers incarnation which began to transform his possesed victims faces into The Geoffrey Beevers Master

The Glorious Dead Master is a 2nd splintered Master which was saved from The Glory (Personally i thought that he looked like Johnathan Pryce's Master)

and The Remaining Third One is The Eric Roberts Master that is still trapped in the eye of harmony- River Song made a refrences in The Doctor Who Game The Enternity Clock that in the tardis walls she could hear the wailing cry of an american

but yeah thats my theroy

Paul McGann Is the only good thing about it- I Dislike Night of The Doctor for several reasons:
1) It was only 6 minutes
2) The Doctor could have easily saved Cass several different ways: A) Materalise the ship around her (like in To The Death, Dark Eyes, Parting of The Ways) B) extended The Tardis forceshield around the ship thus extra protection C) Magnetron the ship away from Karn
3) I had no sympathy or likability for Cass- the way she said "then you are going to die right here- best news all day" was wrong- her basically being racist towards the doctor and the fact that 8 didnt really try to win her over in order to trust her
4) The Manner of The Doctor's Death was unheroic- it would have been more emotional had he tried to save a ship of Refugges being attacked by Daleks, The Doctor could have saved the others but stayed to find a child that was left behind but is killed by a dalek and that The Doctor is seperated from his tardis on the crashing ship craddling the dead child as he prepares for his own death and then cut to Karn....it would have been actually heartbreaking and poetic rather than The Doctor banging on the airlock door for 5 seconds.
5) The Whole Sisterhood of Karn thing feels like they manipulated the events to force the doctor to come to Karn
6) When this mini-episode came out it came out after Dark Eyes 1 which was The Doctor's journey to find hope and after this aired it was like- all that promise from Dark Eyes leads to this- it ruins any future impact the audios have now
7) We have waited 17 Years for Paul Mcgann to come on screen agian and Moffatt kills him off for 6 minutes and creates A NEW DOCTOR instead of Using Mcgann for Day of The Doctor! that is Criminial- i mean Day of The Doctor didnt feel like a 50th Annivesary Special but rather a "10 year annivesary of The New Series- i mean the archive footage of former doctors feel incredibily shoehorned in like why not get McGann to film any scenes for Day of The Doctor while the filming of Night of The Doctor?
8) Had McGann been in Day of The Doctor (we would have had atleast 1 classic Doctor in the special- Tom Baker doesnt really play The 4th Doctor but an original character) it would have been brilliant- A Doctor that was so filled with life in the tv movie now a broken man on a sucuide mission- Bad Wolf helping 8 get peace and saving Gallifrey/Ending the time war would have been the best ending for McGann to end with hope- completing his mission of finding hope in Dark Eyes but no Moffatt isnt intelligent enough to think that way
9) The Regeneration was pants- there wasnt even a transformation scene just basically a photoshop image of a young John Hurt on a cup after 8 drinks a cup and looks like he is going to throw up and the fact that during the filming Paul Mcgann played The War Doctor in those scenes... its like Really?!? whats the point of it

Moffat didn't though the eighth doctor had the best attitude to become a warrior in the war; as for 8 audios they are not finished and they'll still eventually bridge with night ,the old doctors/new monsters segment with mcgann is during the war (the doctor has that costume on the cover too)...as for the death why it should have been necessarily majestic?That is the approach of the new series,always sensationalistyc and blockbusterish and frankly i hate it

I think he may have healed himself somewhat, but still looks and sounds different from the extensive damage to his body, and the change in personality could be from psychological trauma.
