The Master may disguise his features, be he can never disguise his evil intent. We’ve chosen ten of our favourite ‘Master reveals’ from previous series of Doctor Who…

Throughout his many thwarted attempts to gain dominion over the Earth, the Time Lords and the cosmos – and his equally unsuccessful attempts to kill the Doctor – the Master has adopted numerous cunning disguises. Over the years he’s posed as a colonel, an adjudicator, a country vicar, a naval officer, two scientists and a couple of telephone engineers. But his most effective feints have been those occasions when even the viewers at home were fooled until he whipped off his mask.

So what have been the most shocking Master reveals?

10 PLANET OF FIRE (1984)

The shock reveal of Planet of Fire isn’t that the Master is in it. That was clear from the end of Part One, when he took mental control of the robot Kamelion and transformed it into his own likeness. No, the shock comes at the end of Part Three. Until then, we’ve seen the Master in his lair, making sardonic comments and repeatedly ordering Kamelion to “resist the girl!” At the end of Part Three, however, the ‘girl’ in question, Peri, discovers that the real Master has been hoist by his own calling card and suffered a humiliating reduction in circumstances while tinkering with his Tissue Compression Eliminator.

The Master has been hoist by his own calling card and suffered a humiliating reduction in circumstances.

The Master (Anthony Ainley) surprises the court in Part Thirteen of The Trial of a Time Lord (1986).
The Radio Times listing that revealed the Master’s presence.
