The Five Masters was a backup comic printed in the back of Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor issue 12. It continued the story printed in the previous three back up stories of the Doctor and Clara being forced to perform in a music competition in order to save their lives. Like The Abominable Showmen before it, this story is notable as one of the few multi-Master stories, featuring five incarnations of the Time Lord competing to attempt to take over the universe.

Summary Edit

Remarking that he didn't know when he was well of (something he's always wanted the chance to say), the Doctor is approached by Missy who asks how he hopes to stop them. Far from being intimidated, the Doctor declares he will be doing nothing to stop them, in fact he can barely bring himself to care about this plan, even as Missy begs him to ask. When she brings out her device, the Doctor, with an explosive sigh guesses that the plan involves hypnotism before leaving her to it, much to Clara's confusion.

As Missy begins her performance, she and her previous selves begin fighting over the device, each wanting to be the one that brings about galactic conquest. As the Doctor explains to Clara that so many egos in one room could only lead to in-fighting, the Masters are teleported away and it is their turn on stage.
