Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.

This page lists appearances of the Old Master played by Gordon Tipple in the order in which he experienced them. It relies on much speculation to fit semi-contradictory sources together, and should absolutely not be seen as representative of this wiki's general policy.

In this particular context, we are running with the authorial intent of The Novel of the Film to reveal that Gordon Tipple's Master is the same as the "Template:Frontier" created with the help of the Tzun in First Frontier.


Previous page: The Master (Tremas)


With the help of the Tzun, the "Tremas" Master acquires a new regeneration cycle, before he is shot by Ace and regenerates into a new body.


The Master, in his new body, attempts to set a trap for the Doctor but is foiled by Sarah Jane Smith, Mike Yates, and K9 Mark III.
The Master tries to acquire true immortality using the Loom of Rassilon's Mouse, implying there might be something wrong with his new regeneration cycle, but is thwarted.

Meeting his end[]

Noting that his last encounter with the Doctor was Survival, the Master acquires a Deathworm Morphant and deliberately travels to Skaro, sending his TARDIS off into the space-time continuum.
Alternatively, AUDIO: Mastermind states the Master is captured by the Daleks in the Valley of the Kings.
The Master, in his Tzun body, is put on trial on Skaro, presided over by the Dalek Emperor, and exterminated. The Seventh Doctor retrieves his remains, which later become a deathworm.

Currently unplaced[]

These entries are placed here due to being part of ongoing storylines that have yet to offer sufficient enough evidence to be placed in a specific part of this Doctor's timeline, unless further evidence arises in the stories to come.

Awaiting placement[]

These entries are placed here until a suitable position in the timeline can be determined based on the available evidence.
