War Master: The Master of Callous

War Master: The Master of Callous

5 December 2018

The second boxset of The War Master is out now. In this four-part adventure we’ll find out what the Master got up to in the Time War, and how this Time Lord earned the title of the Master….

The War Master: The Master of Callous starring Derek Jacobi as the Master is out now.

On the mining colony Callous, Elliot King struggles to meet the demands of its governor, Teremon. The odds are stacked against him, and his options are running low. The world that once promised dreams now offers only despair.

A wild Ood stalks the forests, carrying an antiquated phone. The caller promises much – he claims he can change the world – but he always speaks a devastating truth.

He is the Master and the Ood will obey him... but to what end?

Scott Handcock, producer and director of The War Master range, told us more in November’s Vortex Magazine: “It’s been lovely getting to world-build, and the colonists in this story feel like a proper community. Derek and Silas are fantastic as the Master and the Ood, but also Maeve Bluebell Wells and Samantha Béart shine as Cassie and Martine King. They’re our identification figures in this, and are simply incredible.

“The entire story feels very honest and real – it’s a very human story, as I say – and all credit to the cast for selling the world and the characters with such conviction.” You can read the full article on this fantastic new series in Vortex Magazine now.

The War Master: The Master of Callous is available now at £20 on download or £23 on CD. Don’t forget that all CD purchases unlock a download on the Big Finish app and the Big Finish site.
