Past Masters- UPDATED by PaulHanley Past Masters- UPDATED by PaulHanley
UPDATE: Now that DARK EYES 2 is out, it seemed an appropriate time to give Alex McQueen's Master his much-deserved place in the lineup (hopefully it doesn't unbalance the composition TOO much).  I put off doing this for a long time because I didn't want to spoil (the excellent) UNIT: DOMINION for anyone- but now that Big Finish is openly billing him as "The Master"... ;)

Here's a picture I've had many, many requests for over the years- Gallifrey's OTHER notorious renegade, the Master, in all of his sinister forms. I deliberately composed it in a way that echoed my famous "11 Doctors" piece: fav.me/d27lv4n

For those wondering, the portraits in the background are of all the Masters of "questionable canonicity". From left to right: The Master from the Doctor Who Magazine 8th Doctor comic strips THE FALLEN and THE GLORIOUS DEAD; "Sam Kisgart" as the Master from the Big Finish audio play SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL; the Basil-Rathbone-esque Master from the 90s "New Adventures" 7th Doctor novels- based on the likeness of Gordon Tipple (who very briefly played the Master in the opening moments of the 1996 TV Movie); Derek Jacobi as the Master from the BBC webcast THE SCREAM OF THE SHALKA; and the great Jonathan Pryce from the Steven-Moffat-penned Comic Relief sketch THE CURSE OF FATAL DEATH.

Great drawing, and also works as a great reference piece too. I enjoyed reading about the portraits (and sources)

What about the Gordon Tipple Master who was on screen for literally 10 seconds.

He's the third portrait from the left in the background (it's mentioned in the description).

Do you plan to somewhat update this pic if the new Master is shown?

That's something I've wondered myself- there's certainly a lot of rumors that he (or she?) will be back this year (but always take those with a giant boulder of salt).  It'd take some doing, as a new Master in the modern series would probably need to be featured prominently up front, and the composition doesn't really have a space for that.  I may give it a shot though- I can think of a few ways I may be able to make it work.
