Spoilers aren't cool here.

This page lists appearances of the Master played by Eric Roberts 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.

After the Thirteenth Master stole the body of Bruce Gerhardt, this new Master adopted a rather distinct persona. The full timeline of the Thirteenth Master can be found here.

Timeline[edit source]

Concurrent page: Thirteenth Master

A new body[edit source]

Having survived his execution on Skaro as a Deathworm Morphant, the Master forces the Doctor's TARDIS to land in 1999 San Francisco, where, after the Doctor is critically injured, the Master possesses the body of Bruce. Bribing Chang Lee, the Master hunts down the Eighth Doctor to steal his body and remaining regenerations. During a final fight with the Doctor in his TARDIS, the Master is sucked into the Eye of Harmony.
After falling into the Eye of Harmony, the Eye attempts to convert the Master into pure energy, but he is able to escape into a spare room in the Doctor's TARDIS, which is then jettisoned into the Time Vortex. (AUDIO: The Lifeboat and the Deathboat)
The Master is still wearing his Gallifreyan robes.
The Master's hair is still brown, setting this before Listen to the voice of your Master!, and he is wearing his clothes from The Lifeboat and the Deathboat. It is possible that Missy rescued him from the Time Vortex for Battle of the Bands Beyond the Stars.
Follows on from The Abominable Showmen.

Trapped in the Time Vortex[edit source]

The Master has been trapped aboard the jettisoned room in the Time Vortex for "roughly a hundred years". He escapes in a stasis capsule.
After boarding a ship and drifting through the Time Vortex for "a while", the Master arrives on Kolstan. He encounters the Eighth Doctor for the first time since Doctor Who. Missy and the "War" Master plan to wipe his memory and throw him back into the Time Vortex after they give a future version of the "Deathworm" Master a new regeneration cycle.
The Master is still trapped in the Time Vortex, and claims to have been trapped for "an eternity". His hair has gone grey since The Lifeboat and the Deathboat.
The Master was eventually drawn back into the Eye of Harmony, (AUDIO: Planet of Dust) where Bruce's body decayed beyond recovery in the Time Vortex. The Master was saved by Esterath to take part in the fight for the Glory, and was resurrected into the body of a deceased vagrant. (COMIC: The Glorious Dead)
