Master Pieces [podcast]

21 stories, 19 authors, 14 Masters but not a single Doctor in sight? For centuries, whether by design or default, the Master has lived in the shadow of another Time Lord. An obsession and fierce rivalry with the Doctor has been at the heart of countless evil schemes, causing him to once observe that ‘the cosmos without the Doctor scarcely bears thinking about’. So what happens when the Doctor doesn’t show up? Can the Master emerge from the shadow of being the Doctor’s arch-enemy? Is there really no pleasure, no mischief, and no reward to be had in a world without the Doctor? Master Pieces is an unofficial charity anthology from Altrix Books, written in aid of The Stroke Association.


Editor Paul Driscoll (@padriscoll) joins Mark McManus (@QuarkMcMalus) to talk about this collection of short stories about the Master.
