    Per i primi cinquant'anni del Master, la Big Finish produce un audiodrama multi Master, nella più classica tradizione della serie. Oltre agli interpreti della serie televisiva, che contano Geoffrey Beevers, Eric Roberts, Derek Jacobi, John Simm e Michelle Gomez (in ordine di apparizione nella serie, abbiamo anche Mark Gatiss (Master nella serie Unbound), Alex Macqueen (credo il primo Master in casa BF) e la new entry Milo Parker. Non potendo avere Roger Delgado e Anthony Ainley, l'autore James Gos Per i primi cinquant'anni del Master, la Big Finish produce un audiodrama multi Master, nella più classica tradizione della serie. Oltre agli interpreti della serie televisiva, che contano Geoffrey Beevers, Eric Roberts, Derek Jacobi, John Simm e Michelle Gomez (in ordine di apparizione nella serie, abbiamo anche Mark Gatiss (Master nella serie Unbound), Alex Macqueen (credo il primo Master in casa BF) e la new entry Milo Parker. Non potendo avere Roger Delgado e Anthony Ainley, l'autore James Goss inserisce Katy Manning nel suo ruolo classico di Jo Grant e Jon Culshaw nei panni di Kamelion. La trama è abbastanza complessa, intrecciando avventure di coppia che scaturiscono dal primo invito del Master di Simm che porta quasi tutti i suoi predecessori nel suo covo. Tutti invitati tranne Missy, per la quale prova un odio viscerale che metterà in pericolo il suo piano malvagio. Non che la cosa impedisca a Missy di partecipare, per poi trovarsi incastrata su un misterioso pianeta con Jo. Una situazione simile a quella vissuta con Clara... ma le interazioni tra la Gomez e la Manning sono di un livello superiore e, tra tutti, è forse la coppia che spicca di netto sulle altre. Non racconto altro della storia, perché l'evolversi delle varie situazioni porta l'ascoltatore a capire con i personaggi cosa sta accadendo e arrivare con loro all'epilogo. Epilogo forse troppo frettoloso ma, visto le premesse, il solo possibile. Nel complesso, calcolando anche la difficoltà nel riconoscere tutte le voci, soprattutto dei Master che ho frequentato di meno (sia in casa BF che per via del doppiaggio nella serie tv), la storia è ottima anche se non perfetta. Una volta scoperto il trucco meriterebbe forse un secondo ascolto, per godere di più dei vari dettagli. Il boxset dell'edizione contiene, oltre alle solite interviste, anche due short trip (Doctor Who: I Am The Master e Doctor Who: The Switching) e il romanzo Terror of the Master.

    My thought in a nutshell- this very much about the journey and how everybody gets there, and less about the resolution. For all fans of the Master, a recommendation. This is 3 fun hours of delightful banter and murder. And lots and lots of backstabbing. I enjoyed myself here, and I also liked the more quiet bits where nothing appeared to "go forward". I think that added some insight into the character. In general, I think Missy completely stole the show.

I enjoyed myself here, and I also liked the more quiet bits where nothing appeared to "go forward". I think that added some insight into the character. In general, I think Missy completely stole the show. Jacobi, Beevers and MacQueen were all great in their respective roles, and their Masters were the most memorable and interesting in their respective roles (beside Missy, that is). Plus, Eric Roberts was surprisingly good, I think over the past few times he appeared in Big Finish, he got better each time. However, I felt that the young Master and the Unbound Master were pretty much wasted. And I did not warm up to Simm, which might be because he sounded quite different from the TV version. I have never been a fan of the Simm TV Master, and I am afraid he did not do a lot for me here, either. So yes, this was a good set, but of course YMMV depending on how much you like the concept of the Master and enjoy his antics. This story certainly was no revelation and the plot also was not the most fascinating or original. But it succeeds in being a fun romp and amusing entertainment. I am actually happy for what we got, and for me this was worth it just for the Missy scenes.

    Masterful was an ambitious multi-Master story to make in honor of the character's 50th anniversary. Some of the arguing was fun, but I did not find this to be as enjoyable as multi-Doctor stories tend to be. Maybe I just don't like many incarnations of The Master that much? Including Jo Grant in the story was a nice touch, given that she debuted the same time as The Master. 3.5/5 I think. The limited edition also includes two Short Trips from a while ago: I Am the Master and The Switching.

While I'd previously heard the latter and gave it 4/5 stars, this was my first time listening to the former, a Geoffrey Beavers Master story which I found amusing and creepy but lacking since it had no music to it. So 3/5 for that one. Then there's Terror of the Master, which includes a really well-voiced Third Doctor. However, much like some of the Classic Who serials, this story, which is more than 3 hours, feels like it drags. So 3/5 for that. So overall, I really wish I could have enjoyed this collection more. Somehow, it just didn't hit me in all the right places.

    Delightful in many ways, and it was obviously written by someone who finds each incarnation of the Master fascinating in their own way. The dialogue is particularly witty and snarky and everyone gets a moment to shine, but Michelle Gomez steals the show in every scene she's in. If anything, listen to hear Michelle Gomez having a GREAT time playing Missy.

    This is by far the most ambitious Big Finish story done in recent years, with it not only being a huge Multi-Master epic, something that hasn't been tried before on such a huge scale but also a very clever idea, which in recent years Big Finish haven't done much of and James Goss has managed to pull it off with impressive scale! This is a story with so many little plot threads that fold into one another so seamlessly by the end it's brilliant and every Master get's something worth while to do whi This is by far the most ambitious Big Finish story done in recent years, with it not only being a huge Multi-Master epic, something that hasn't been tried before on such a huge scale but also a very clever idea, which in recent years Big Finish haven't done much of and James Goss has managed to pull it off with impressive scale! This is a story with so many little plot threads that fold into one another so seamlessly by the end it's brilliant and every Master get's something worth while to do which I imagine was quite hard to do, I also liked the inclusion of Jo Grant and Kamelion who were great characters to include in such a gigantic story. But apart from the writing, the cast particularly all The Master's have given us some of the best performances Big Finish has to had to offer in a long time and the direction from Ken Bentley is outstandinly good. I don't want to say too much about this release since I really don't want to spoil much about this amazing release, but it is really worth while and I just want to welcome John Simm and Milo Parker to Big Finish as The Master, I really hope Big Finish include them in future releases, but these two were brilliant, John Simm does sound a bit different to then he does on TV but you can easily tell it's his Master, whilst Milo Parker was a fascinating new perspective of what The Master could be like in his first incarnation! Overall: This is in my opinion Big Finish's most impressive release in the last five years and it's absolutely stellar! 10/10

    So, this is a review for Masterful the story. I have not had a chance to listen to the Short Trips or Audiobook included in the Limited Edition. Masterful is a decent enough story, but can be quite confusing at times. When everything was revealed at the end I found that wasn't as good as I expected. That said, hearing eight incarnations of the Master together in the same room together was a joy. Although, Beevers, Jacobi and Macqueen and Simm sound very similar on audio so it was hard to tell wh So, this is a review for Masterful the story.

It's worth a listen, but it wasn't quite what I was expecting.

    I finally listened to Masterful and over all, I enjoyed it more than I expected too. I am a little confused with where the young Master comes into all this and where he is in his timeline but I loved the dynamics between the whole cast and crew of Masters. The pacing was a little bit off at times but it was such a delight to hear Macqueen!Master again as he’s one of my favourite Masters and I loved Missy and Jo’s interactions. Also, I loved Crispy!Master in this and how he was almost more...human? I finally listened to Masterful and over all, I enjoyed it more than I expected too.

    One of the criticisms I've read about this three-part miniseries is that it ends so abruptly. Or that the ending is a sort of deus ex machina. But I guess neither of those things bother me. By the time we near the final minutes, how it's going to end was properly signaled. I thought so, anyway. No, my main problem with it was that it took nearly the whole thing before I quite understood what was going on.

However, someday I'm going to listen to this one again, and maybe on a second listen, I'll enjoy it more.

    Was I in it for some mind-blowing, canon-defining story? No. And this didn't need one either. I wanted to hear a whole bunch of Masters galavant around the universe and be kinda mean to each other, and this delivered. Was I in it for some mind-blowing, canon-defining story?
