I Am The Master by CosmicThunder I Am The Master by CosmicThunder
The other renegade, the archenemy. After drawing line ups of all the Doctors I thought it was time to give some love to the other side of the coin, The Doctor's old friend The Master. I hope you like it.

From left to right.

Alex MacQueen, Eric Roberts, Anthony Ainley, Michelle Gomez, Roger Delgardo, Derek Jacobi, John Simm, Geoffrey Beevers and Gordon Tipple.

(F.Y.I) If you don't recognize the 2 incarnations on ether end of the line up.

The one on the far left (Alex MacQueen) is an incarnation created for the Big Finish audio Stories who I believe comes in-between Eric Roberts and Derek Jacobi and is possibly the Master who fought in the Time War.

The one on the far right (Gordon Tipple) is the incarnation that is exterminated by the Daleks at the beginning of the TV Movie The Enemy Within.

I know it's VERY debatable if he counts as his own Master or just the Anthony Ainley version. I count him because in early cuts of the TV movie he had lines in the form of the opening monologue, there for showing him to be his own incarnation. But most importantly I counted him for the symmetry of the picture. Also it gave me an excuse to create a look for him and I like designing costumes so I'm happy.

The BEST incarnations of The Master always wear gloves.  Maybe its just my opinion?

The Anthony Ainley Master is my favorite incarnation and I love this grouping of all the Masters.

I think Michelle Gomez is doing a fantastic job with the character. She feels like the true successor to Roger Delgado's Master.

Great work!  I really wish we could have had more of Derek Jacobi's Master.

I really love that you included MacQueen and Tipple! I agree with you that Tipple is his own incarnation. He appears in some of the Virgin New Adventures books from the 90s as well, where they explain how he came to be.

By the way, great artwork! :D

The Master also has quite a distinctive style. Basically classic supervillain look, mostly refined with a campy touch, and usually dark color palettes. 

Although he was generally more likely to "drezzz for the occasion" than the Doctor. XD Then again, it's nor particularly hard to look less conspicuous than him.

I still sort of wish there was more kid!Master in this.

when it comes to fashion he is indeed a fancy mother lover. I didn't add kid Master because I don't see him as The Master I see him as the boy who would one day become The Master. Same character granted just not The Master yet.

It's like Jake Lloyd Didn't play Darth Vader in Phantom Menace he played, the boy who would one day become Darth Vader.

According to what info I have been able to gather and confirm, Delgado, Pratt and Beevers are the same incarnation, the Thirteenth Master.

Ainley is a new body, but not a new incarnation, still the Thirteenth.

Tipple is said to be the Fourteenth, a real new incarnation.

Roberts is a cross between the Ainley and Pratt/Beevers Masters, a new body, but not a new incarnation and it is really an animate corpse that is rapidly rotting.

McQueen is the Fifteenth Master, resurrected by the Time Lords, for some grand future plan, hinted at being the Last Great Time War.

Jacobi, could be either the Sixteenth Master, or the same incarnation as McQueen, if McQueen was the Master in the Time War, who fled and turned himself human, in which case, Jacobi just just a now elderly McQueen Master.

Simm is presumably the Seventeenth Master, with Gomez being the Eighteenth Master, and the First Mistress.

Unlike the Doctor though, we will never know just how many Masters there are altogether.

What are your thoughts?

The way I see it is. Delgado is 12 and Pratt and Beevers are 13. the reason why, is because Pratt was only cast as The Master because Delgardo had tragically been killed in a car accident, so I thought it was a little distasteful to say this rotten corps was meant to be the same incarnation as the Man who just died. Plus If you include the Big Finish audio cannon Breeves's Corps Master is shown to be his own incarnation.

So Ainley,
Tipple and Roberts are all stolen body "incarnations" of Pratt / Beevers 13th Master. McQueen according to Big Finnish cannon is resurrected for possible future nefarious use (The Time War) by the Time Lords making him the 14th Master and 1st body in a new life cycle. Then Jacobi is 15, Simm is 16 and Gomez is 17.

That's how I see it anyway.

That's pretty understandable too! I always figured that Delgado was 12 and Pratt/Beevers was 13, but everyone online is now saying that they're the same incarnation.

Ehh, I could always say he's an aged Ainley x3

CosmicThunder Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2014
Yeah I think initially that was what he was suppose to be but it is left very ambiguous. This is how i folded him in to my own head cannon as his own incarnation.

In the Big Finish audio stories the Anthony Ainley stolen body incarnation of the Master becomes unstable and he degenerates back into Geoffrey Beevers that's how we get stories with that incarnation of the Master going up against the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Doctors  but with all the memories of the Anthony Ainley incarnation. I just took to believing that Gordon Tipple was another stolen body the Geoffrey Beevers incarnation had taken.

nice (I kind of think that the Cyberman that shot the master in the end of the last episode was NOT the brigadier, but a drone set up by the master as an emergency escape plan)

That would be disrespectful to the Brigadier, I think. But a lot of people have pointed out that Missy's "disintegration" looked a lot like her teleportation effect from earlier, which is how I like to view it.
