Big Finish Reveals Covers for Standard and Limited Edition Masterful Sets

The covers for Big Finish’s celebration of the Master, to commemorate 50 years of the Doctor’s best enemy, have been revealed, as have extra details of Masterful‘s limited edition deluxe set. The latter will also include Short Trips: I Am The Master and Short Trips: The Switching (both previously available on download only), and Terror of the Master by Trevor Baxendale, a brand new, narrated audiobook!

The story features a huge cast of evil incarnations of the renegade Time Lord, including Geoffrey Beevers, Mark Gatiss, Michelle Gomez, Derek Jacobi, Alex MacQueen, Milo Parker, Eric Roberts, and John Simm.

Masterful will be released in January 2021, marking the 50th anniversary of the Master’s screen debut in Terror of the Autons. Here’s the synopsis:

The Master’s finally done it. He’s won. He summons his other selves to a celebration of his ultimate victory. And they come – from across time and dimensions. But he’s forgotten to invite someone. And Missy’s not happy.  

Has the Master really conquered the universe? Or has something more awful been unleashed? Something that even all the Masters cannot stop?  

Missy is determined to reveal the truth. Because one fact about the Master’s existence never changes. No one can trust the Master. Not even the Master. 

The standard edition of Masterful (featuring three discs) is available to pre-order, priced at £24.99 (on CD) or £19.99 (as a download). But if you want an extra special version, the deluxe set includes:

  • Discs 1-3: Masterful 
  • Disc 4: Masterful – Behind the Scenes
  • Disc 5: Short Trips: I Am The Master and Short Trips: The Switching
  • Discs 6-8: Terror of the Master by Trevor Baxendale, a brand new, narrated audiobook featuring the Third Doctor, the Master, and UNIT.  

The boxset edition is limited to 3,000 copies only.

Masterful is now available to pre-order as a limited edition 8-CD boxset (priced at £44.99), or on download (at £39.99), exclusively at the Big Finish website.
