Eric Roberts gets his own audio series as Doctor Who’s villainous Master

Eric Roberts will return to play the version of the Master last seen in the 1996 TV movie Doctor Who for Big Finish Productions.

Now he’s escaped to wreak havoc upon the universe in his very own box set of brand new, full-cast Big Finish audio adventures, due for release in March 2021. Along the way, he’ll meet old enemies, new companions and the universe’s most glamorous and dangerous bounty hunter, Vienna Salvatori (a special guest appearance by Chase Masterson, best known as the Bajoran Dabo Girl Leeta on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine).

MASTER! is now available for pre-order as a collector’s edition three-disc box set and as a digital download from

Abandoned in the Vortex, the Master’s lost incarnation is about to be thrown a lifeline. 

Earth rebuilds in the aftermath of invasion, and power rests with those who innovate. Genius Lila Kreeg makes a deal with the devil to see her dreams fulfilled. 

As the Master returns, there are those – like Vienna Salvatori – who wish to hunt him, and those upon whom he wishes vengeance himself… 

The Master will be doing his dastardly deeds in three thrilling new stories:  

  • Faustian by Robert Valentine 
  • Prey by Robert Whitelock 
  • Vengeance by Matt Fitton 

“Entering this Blade Runneresque world with the TV Movie Master was a real thrill for me, and it’s been a joy to hear our brilliant cast interacting with the effortlessly evil Eric Roberts,” said director Jamie Anderson. “The future this writing trio have created is a thrilling place to adventure for three one-hour stories, and listeners are in for a treat when they get to meet the future Earth’s characters – both good and evil.”

“The Master continues his cunning plan, by stealth, to take over the Big Finish release schedule – we have the War Master, we have Missy, and now the Movie Master has his own box set, reaching out for help from the Time Vortex – and finding new allies and new foes,” added producer David Richardson. “Think Killing Eve in a dystopian future and you may just get a taster of what this new direction for the Master looks like.”
