The Two Masters, starring Sylvester McCoy as the Doctor

A special solo adventure for Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor, in the last of three stories with a recurring villain following on from …And You Will Obey Me and Vampyre of the Mind.

A ‘Two Masters’ storyline was something I’d been thinking about for a while, ever since Alex Macqueen’s ‘New’ Master arrived in UNIT: Dominion – putting him opposite Geoffrey Beevers’ ‘Old’ Master seemed an irresistible idea. But if Two Masters are better than one, then three Master stories are definitely better than two, heh heh heh. So I came up with a dastardly plan to put together a whole trilogy of adventures.Alan Barnes

The Two Masters

The future is dying. All over the universe, gaps are beginning to appear. From the space lanes terrorised by the rag-tag remnants of the once-mighty Rocket Men, to the empire of the Gorlans, stricken by a terrible civil war. Gaps in space/time, portents of the end of everything.

Only three beings might prevent it. The Doctor, a renegade Time Lord from Gallifrey. The Master, another renegade Time Lord from Gallifrey. And another Master, yet another renegade Time Lord from Gallifrey.

One Doctor. Two Masters. What could possibly go wrong?

It was a pleasure to be invited to direct this long-awaited team up between two versions of Doctor Who’s most iconic villain. Alan and his writers have come up with a ‘masterplan’ which is sure to surprise fans of this classic character – in his 45th year of terrorising the universe.Jamie Anderson


Technical Details

This is something that our listeners have been asking us to do for absolutely ages, so we’re very happy to deliver! It’s also something that our boss, Jason Haigh-Ellery was very keen on. The idea has been a long time in the making, because we wanted to get it totally right. As is fitting, it’s slightly crazy, slightly mind-melting and massively exciting with loads of shocks, twists and turns along the way. We’re also very happy to have Jamie Anderson on board as director. He did a fantastic job of directing and producing our audio versions of his father Gerry’s creation, Terrahawks, that we gave him the opportunity to work on our Doctor Who range. He’s very quickly established a great working relationship with our Doctors and we hope he’ll be with us for many years to come.Nicholas Briggs
