The Master is a renegade Time Lord and the Doctor's arch-nemesis.

Although they were originally boyhood friends, one of the Master's primary goals was to destroy the Doctor and Earth while acting on a number of schemes, both petty and gross. It was eventually discovered that the Master's diabolical madness was partially the result of a genuine malady in the form of a never-ending drumming sound that had been retroactively implanted inside his head by the Time Lords on the last day of the Last Great Time War to further their own goals.

The Master became the central villain of Doctor Who: Legacy  in the Chapter 2 epilogue levels. He used the Toclafane to attack Sontar and hunt the Doctor.

The ability icons of the Master are deliberately different from those of other enemies, in order to confuse players.

The Master first appeared in the game in cutscenes from the Chapter 2 levels No Green Gems: Old friends, older enemies part 1 and No Black Gems: Old friends, older enemies part 2.
