Sir Derek Jacobi Returns to Doctor Who as The Master

 

Sir Derek Jacobi is set to reprise his iconic role as the Master in latest set of Doctor Who adventures from Big Finish Productions.

10 years ago today Jacobi starred in Doctor Who Series 3 episode 'Utopia' which saw him play a character called Professor Yana who was revealed to be in fact The Master. The ruthless renegade Time Lord returns with the four stories taking place during the Time War with the Daleks and collected under the title "Doctor Who: The War Master". The four stories are as follows:

1. Beneath the Viscoid by Nicholas Briggs

On the ocean planet Gardezza, deep beneath the Viscoid, a mysterious capsule is recovered from the Time War, and an equally mysterious stranger found within. The Doctor’s reputation precedes him, even here… but can he be trusted?

2. The Good Master by Janine H Jones

The Time War rages around Arcking - a planet serving as a sanctuary for the sick and injured. But Arcking is protected by a mysterious, powerful force: a force the Master will stop at nothing to harness… even if time itself is against him.

3. The Sky Man by James Goss

When his new companion decides to save a planet, the Master indulges this most futile of requests. Materialising on a primitive, agrarian world, both the strangers quickly find their place in it… until fallout from the War invades their happy paradise.

4. The Heavenly Paradigm by Guy Adams

With his plans approaching fruition, the Master travels to Stamford Bridge in the 1970s: a location he believes might hold the key to his success. But what terrible secret lurks under the stairs of No. 24 Marigold Lane? And what sacrifices will the Master make in the name of ultimate victory?


Due for release December 2017, "The War Master" will be returning to bring destruction to the Universe and is available to pre-order from the Big Finish website for £23 on CD or £20 as a download. Click here for full information/purchase details.
