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

This page lists appearances of the Master played by Roger Delgado 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.

By most accounts, this incarnation of the Master was separate from the Thirteenth Master who first met Goth on Tersurus, (COMIC: Doorway to Hell, AUDIO: The Two Masters, AUDIO: Sympathy for the Devil, Master Thief) however, by one account, it was this incarnation who was severely deformed shortly prior to his meeting with Goth. (PROSE: Legacy of the Daleks)

Currently unplaced[edit source]

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.

Time Lord Victorious[edit source]

The Master loses his memories and personality, with not even a regeneration being a possibility to solve the problem. Before losing consciousness, he manages to record a message to himself to inform him of his identity.

Awaiting placement[edit source]

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