[The Master is a] lapsed Time Lord of equal, perhaps even senior, rank to the Doctor. Now on the run from the Time Lords.
Sinister, polished, charming. A manipulator of others for evil ends, with a vested interest in chaos and misrule, which he turns to his own profit.
He will cooperate with any evil force but will readily double cross his evil allies if things get sticky. Completely selfish and ruthless.
Tends to use a variety of roles and aliases, often based on his own title. Masters, Masterson, Le Maitre, Il Maestro. Always chooses a distinguished and affluent role for himself. Uses a naturally dominant personality amounting almost to hypnosis, to bring others under his sway. (But they can sometimes break loose).
A long standing and implacable enemy of the Doctor, he is the force of evil bound to oppose the Doctor’s force of good.
The Master has a chameleon like ability to adapt to any society in which he finds himself. He will therefore be completely natural and convincing in his various human roles. He must NOT be written as a moustache twirling villain of melodrama, or given melodramatic dialogue; if anything his evil quality should be underplayed, though never forgotten.”
