Doctor Who – The Monster Collection: The Master

Take a trip through time and space to meet creatures and enemies that always came back for more…

DOCTOR WHO – THE MONSTER COLLECTION: The Master contains two exciting stories!

THE MASTER is a dangerous, power-mad Time Lord and one of the Doctor’s deadliest foes. He brings death, danger and chaos to every story in which he appears.

TERROR OF THE AUTONS is a four-part adventure first shown in 1971. This story, with Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor, introduces the Master to Doctor Who.

THE END OF TIME is a two part-story first shown in 2009/10. It is the last story to feature the Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant, and sees an unstable Master unleash a deadly plan.

This set contains the four-part "Terror of the Autons" from 1971, as well as the two-part "The End of Time" from 2009/2010. Acting as both an introduction to the show for new viewers and a collector's item for the long-term fans, this set focuses on the Master, the Doctor's one-time friend turned long-time enemy.

Jon Pertwee stars as the Doctor's third incarnation in "Terror of the Autons", a story involving a circus, a blue horsebox, hypnotism, a floating Time Lord, a top-secret military organisation, policemen that aren't really policemen, a flowery coach bus and a heck of a lot of plastic. Katy Manning makes her debut as ditzy babe Josephine "Jo" Grant and Richard Franklin also debuts as Captain Mike Yates, UNIT's second in command and the Brig's right hand man. Roger Deglado makes an impact as the Master, playing him as a mischievous charmer who discusses the Doctor's demise as calmly as though he was talking about the weather. The suffocating chair may have come in for some flack at the time, but it's still an effective scene and possibly the stand-out moment of the story; it's hard to think of this adventure and not think of that image. Setting up the scene for most of the stories to come, this is great.

Thirty eight years later, with many Doctor/Master battles in between, "The End of Time" saw the Master unleash possibly the maddest scheme he's ever come up with. If Roger Delgado played the part as a charmer, then John Simm plays him as a straight-up loon. Gone are the mischievous qualities that Delgado and Anthony Ainley gave the character; the Master here is properly insane, to the point where we actually see him tied up in a straightjacket.

I have no idea where `KK' gets his/her information. According to the BBC these `Monster Collections' are specially themed sets to represent the most popular opponents of the Doctor. Each DVD will feature a story from the original run of Doctor Who (usually the first appearance of the monster) and from its return since 2005 (ie. Old Who and New Who as it is sometimes termed).

They are to be presented in sleeved cases in much the same design as `The Cybermen Collection' and `The Dalek Collection' that were released in 2009. This looks as if this will give them a collectible appearance.

This DVD includes:

TERROR OF THE AUTONS (3/5) - once more appearing with another story, it doesn't look as if this will have its own release. Even though it is the first appearance of the Master it is certainly not his strongest story or his best interaction with the Doctor. As he often does the Master shares the limelight, this time with the Autons. It is right that it should be Roger Delgado's version that appears but there are many stories when he is on much better form.

THE END OF TIME (5/5) - a great performance from John Simms. Never has the Master been more insane whilst also appearing as a sympathetic figure. Despite the `Master Race' the Master is somewhat overshadowed by the return of Rassilon and the demise of the Tenth Doctor. Perhaps, `Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Timelords' would have been a better story to represent the Master. It would have also featured another incarnation of the Master in Derek Jacobi.

As yet there is no mention of special features. It would seem a shame if there weren't any.

As previously released stories they are clearly intended to be collector's items especially for the fiftieth anniversary.

DVD was reasonably priced and with 2 great episodes, but no special features was a shame.

Two stories featuring The Master - Terror of the Autons from the Pertwee era, and The End of Time part 1 and 2 - David Tennant's swansong. Roger Delgado is, was and always will be the definitive Master - here is a character you truly believe to be evil and a threat and all because of the fabulous acting of Delgado. It's little wonder the character stayed around for nearly every story of the next couple of years because he is just SO good in the role, and a perfect pair to spar with Pertwee. I often wonder how the shape of Doctor Who would have been if Delgado had survived the tragic crash in 1973. The story also features the Autons who Pertwee defeated temporarily in his debut story. A few dodgy effects aside, this story set the benchmark for Doctor Who in the future. Anthony Ainley was also a great master, and at least took Delgado's appearance, and finally got a great story in his final role in Survival - but John Simm?? No - he's not the Master. I think i'd have preferred to see Derek Jacobi with a black goatee in the role. As a story it's an epic and a deserving finale for Tennant, but they even had to bring in the timelords to show a proper menacing and a believable villain in Timothy Dalton. Simm is more like a spoiled child. At least, for the many people who complained about Autons being released in a box set, here it is for a bargain price.
