Doctor Who: I Am The Master

Legends of the Renegade Time Lord




A collection of all-new adventures that reveal the exploits of the Doctor's arch-nemesis, the Master in all his/her incarnations, including the latest version, played by Sacha Dhawan.

Everything you think you know...is a lie.

The Doctor and the Master; their conflict of light and dark has spanned many times and faces across the universe. This collection - of five short stories and a novella - explores the depths of darkness in the Master's hearts; the arch-schemer's secrets and sinister ambitions revealed through brand new adventures and encounters.

Join six incarnations of evil for undreamed of adventures: a quest to free alien warlords... a dangerous mission to save a vital ally... a meeting with Bram Stoker... a shattering of lives on a distant world... a trial of wits to gain untold power... and drop in on the Master's latest incarnation during his 77 years of imprisonment on Earth.
