Doctor Who – 1983 – All the Years

Doctor Who – All The Years is a quick examination of what was happening in the world of Doctor Who over all its years of existence. I’m not attempting to create a thorough history–just brief look back at the real-life timeline of my favorite TV show. Go back to the beginning and read about 1963 here.

Doctor Who: Master [Big Finish]

Master was the 49th entry in Big Finish’s “Main Range” or “Monthly Range” of Doctor Who audios (released back in 2003), that were part of a run of four stories which starred the four Doctors that Big Finish had access to at the time, and which were each named after one of the franchise’s major villains: Omega, Davros, Master and (original to audio) Zagreus. The releases were part of the celebrations for the show’s 40th anniversary. This time around Sylvester McCoy stars as the Seventh Doctor, traveling without a companion, and Geoffrey Beevers co-stars as the Master, a role he had played on TV in The Keeper of Traken and then at least in one audio story before this one (Dust Breeding).
