Beavers and parker does sound like an interesting boxset and i would be interested, but personally i think i quite like Beavers being the “propper” master for lack of a better word at big finish (along with McQueen). Not an Anti hero like Missy or Roberts, or the evil but mostly removed from the doctor due to continuity War Master. Just the plain evil master facing the doctor.
After all, the master is and should be a villain and more importantly an antagonist, first and foremost. Making them a protagonist (even if they are still being villainous) shouldn’t happen too much so as to not dilute the character and should only be for the Masters who can’t face the doctor (its why i think maybes that story idea but with The War Master would be pretty sweet.
Personally my want would be simm as again theres not a lot of spaces for him to fight the doctor (i suppose he could face smith but we don’t have smith yet so)
Surprised that according to the latest podcast we won’t be getting a John Simms Master set any time soon. I really did think, with him returning to the role in Masterful, that it was a near certainty, but instead it is a case of one and done!
I can only assume he did the 50th Anniversary set because he knew it would be a special release, but obviously doesn’t want to continue the character.
The good news must be that a set for the Alex MacQueen Master and/or the Geoffrey Beevers Master must now be a little more likely to happen.
But with the War Master range, the Missy range and now the Master! set getting such good reviews with talk of potentially more from Eric Roberts, perhaps Big Finish think they have the character of the Master well and truly covered already with newer and (I suspect) more marketable leads.
