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.

Spoilers aren't cool here.
(Try The Howling, instead.)

This page lists appearances of the Master played by Sacha Dhawan 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.

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 Master'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.
