The Doctor and the Master; their conflict of light and dark has spanned many times and faces across the universe.

Join six incarnations of evil for undreamed of adventures: a quest to free alien warlords... a dangerous mission to save a vital ally... a meeting with Bram Stoker... a shattering of lives on a distant world... a trial of wits to gain untold power... and drop in on the Master’s latest incarnation during his 77 years of imprisonment on Earth.
