These six real ‘hide behind the sofa’ collections bring together episodes of the scariest and most iconic monsters from Doctor Who’s classic and recent series.

Each title concentrates on a deadly enemy – The Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, The Master, Davros and the Silurians – and features two separate stories from popular incarnations of the Doctor, including Matt Smith, David Tennant, Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee. These collections are perfect for younger viewers just discovering the scary delights of fifty years of Doctor Who.


The Monster Collection: The Master

Terror of the Autons (1971)

The Master arrives on Earth at a circus run by a man named Rossini and steals a dormant Nestene energy unit from a museum. He reactivates it using a radio telescope and uses his hypnotic abilities to take control of a small plastics firm. Starring Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor.
The End of Time Parts 1 and 2 (2009-10)
With almost everyone on Earth now recast in his image, The Master controls the world. He’s shocked however when he realizes that one person hasn’t changed… Starring David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor

    first and latest appearnce to date ,i think thry should’ve had ainley master in it as he was longest serving and had many stories.

      There is no Ainley story on this. It would’ve been pointless. People who bought the DVD would be saying “Where is that guy on the cover in these DVD’s?”.

      but john simm isnt as good as ainly

      peter prat is the best master

    • josh smith

      July 15th, 2013 - 4:39pm

      yes he was very good shame he only had 1 story.

      i love when he says “as predictable as ever Doctor”

      I am glad to see I am not the only one who likes him

      The Masters in order from my most favorite to least: Ainley, Delgado, Pratt/Beavers, Jacobi, Simm, and Roberts. I really don’t like the Roberts Master…

    • josh smith

      July 15th, 2013 - 9:05pm

      mine are

      peter prat
      eric roberts

      jacobi isnt the master

    • josh smith

      July 15th, 2013 - 9:06pm

      delgado being the best and simm being the worst

    • Scott the Raptor

      July 16th, 2013 - 9:58am

      My order from best to worst:

      1. Roger Delgado – He really just stole the role.
      2. John Simm – He is great at playing an ‘insane’ and ‘darker’ Master.
      3. Peter Pratt – He managed to act brilliantly when covered in make up and ping pong ball eyes
      4. Beavers – For the same reason as Pratt. He just wasn’t as good as him.
      5. Roberts – I thought he played him very well. I loved his Time Lord costume as well!
      6. Ainley – I couldn’t help but feel like they tried to make Ainley’s Master too much like Delgado’s.

    • Scott the Raptor

      July 16th, 2013 - 4:55pm

      Can you tell me why you put each Master as that number, Dalek galt? It will be interesting to find out.

    • dalek galt

    This is the one I’ll be picking up as it’s the only one with stories that I don’t yet own! I must say though that these covers are all awsome!

  • Cyberman V2

    July 13th, 2013 - 8:30am

    Also looks really good

  • matparks08

    July 13th, 2013 - 12:37am

    I wonder if they might have reversible covers? Delgado on the other side?

    • Cyberleader1010

      July 13th, 2013 - 9:40pm

      Great idea! It would be cool if that we’re the same for all of them, like a classic version of the monster on the other side.

    • Dalek The Supreme

      July 15th, 2013 - 6:31pm

      I hope so, it would be completely awesome.

  • drwhofan130

    is it just me or is the tardis flipped in the backround because it is really looks ugly and puts off the cover

    • Scott the Raptor

      July 15th, 2013 - 10:20am

      Nope, it’s not flipped.

  • Dalek The Supreme

    July 12th, 2013 - 8:02pm

    I’m kind of sad they didn’t put one with Ainley in it, but as I said on the Dalek one, it connects then and now better with the earliest and the most recent stories with the monster.

      Why no suRvival

    • Dalek The Supreme

      July 12th, 2013 - 11:25pm

      I believe I explained in my comment.

    • josh smith

      July 13th, 2013 - 8:22am

      why not

      mind of evil

      1 old master and 1 new one

    • The Greater Intelligence

      July 13th, 2013 - 1:51pm

      I agree, I may not be the first but ‘The Mind Of Evil’ is much better than ‘Terror Of The Autons’ just basically, but it also is more Master-involved and he is the central villain, in the latter he is just a third wheel compared to everything else. Plus, I never found John Simm as a believable version of the Master and, even though I hate Ainley’s Master, he had good episodes such as ‘Planet Of Fire’ or ‘Survival’.

    • josh smith

      July 13th, 2013 - 2:51pm

      i have not seen the mind of evil is the colour good on it?

    • Dalek The Supreme

      July 13th, 2013 - 3:25pm

      Survival and Mind of Evil are both Classics, these stories are trying to connect the first fully surviving appearance of each monster with their most recent. If I had my way, it would be Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords instead of End of Time, but they decided to put in the most recent appearance, so good for those who like End of Time more than I did.

    • josh smith

      July 14th, 2013 - 8:17am

      utopia isnt connected

    • Dalek The Supreme

      July 15th, 2013 - 6:32pm

      It is, it explains how the Master arrived on Earth, and why the Doctor and co. don’t have the TARDIS.

  • auton101

    July 12th, 2013 - 6:41pm

    Terror of the autons is a brilliant story, i already have it so i wont get this. and i agree that delgado should be on the front too.

  • AlphaOmega

    July 12th, 2013 - 6:10pm

    They could’ve put one of those shimmering images on the cover – one being Delgado and the other being Simm

  • Doctor Who Crazy Ross

    July 12th, 2013 - 5:30pm

    okay, thats it. I’m getting them all. The covers are brilliant, the contents are amazing, and I’m sure they’ll look great in my collection 🙂

  • Andrew

    July 12th, 2013 - 4:15pm

    Why isn’t Delgado on the front!?

    • Some bloke

      July 12th, 2013 - 4:17pm

      I know, they always use the new-who stuff on these covers. Quite annoying how there supposed to be a 50th anniversary product, yet they only use images from the 21st century series

    • booboo

      July 12th, 2013 - 4:17pm

      because the target audience for these are more likely to recognise John Sim

    • Some bloke

      July 12th, 2013 - 4:20pm

      then why not put both on. I mean both incarnations are in there so…

  • josh smith

    July 12th, 2013 - 4:10pm

    really no Ainly?!

    • AlphaOmega

      July 12th, 2013 - 6:06pm

      Notice which episodes they’ve used – the first and latest episodes of each character/monster (save for the Cybermen because Tenth Planet isn’t released yet)

    • josh smith

      July 12th, 2013 - 6:41pm

      id rather have delgaqdo and ainly. simm is a very bad master

  • StarkBoy

    July 12th, 2013 - 3:42pm
