Sacha Dhawan (born 1 May 1984) played the Master in series 12 of Doctor Who, beginning with his introduction in Spyfall. Notably, he was the first non-white actor, and specifically the first British-Indian actor, to be cast in this role for television.
Executive producer Matt Strevens had also offered Dhawan a role in series 11, for Demons of the Punjab, but he had to turn it down, as he was already away filming. He was later offered the part of the Master outright, without being asked to audition.
