A would-be conqueror of the universe, the Master is the Doctor’s oldest and deadliest foe. A rival Time Lord with the same ability to change his physical appearance by regeneration and occasionally body-snatching, this cunning villain holds the ability to manipulate, charm and destroy whole races in equal measure, often doing so for the simple gain of making the Doctor suffer.
Once boyhood friends on Gallifrey, the Doctor and the Master became polar opposites, one celebrating life in the Universe, the other taking great pleasure trying to destroy it. A highly skilled hypnotist, the Master was able to dominate and control his victims into doing his bidding.
His weapons of choice were the Tissue Compression Eliminator and Laser Screwdriver.
The latest incarnation of the Master transformed into a female form, Missy, who’s traits still held firm – death and destruction always foremost on her mind.
