The Unofficial Master Annual 2074

This item is discontinued.

Out Now – The unofficial Master annual 2074

Last year Terraqueous Distributors released ‘The unofficial Dr Who annual 1972’, and ‘The unofficial Dr Who annual 1987’. Which featured stories and illustrations produced by fans, as well as celebrity contributions from the worlds of Doctor Who.

Now TERRAQUEOUS DISTRIBUTORS have released The unofficial Master annual 2074.

The annual is an impressive 136 pages, featuring stories and illustrations produced by fans, as well as contributions from well known names such as Alister Pearson, Smuzz, and Andy Walker.

The Master annual was originally announced last November, with a call for contributors. The following is an excerpt from the writers guidelines: “The Master is the Anti-hero. Sometimes saving people, not because of compassion or moral values, but because it suits whatever agenda he has.

Of course he can also be the villain, remember that meddlesome Doctor isn’t around – and thats when villains come out on top”. The focus of the annual is the original Master portrayed by Roger Delgado.

As many fans will notice, the cover artwork is a homage to the first ever Dr Who annual that was released in 1965 by World Distributors. “We wanted from the start to send the message that the Doctor isn’t here to save the day, he’s gone, he’s been replaced by a different kind of “hero”.

And in the unofficial Master annual, we get to explore just how successful he can be. What could be more thrilling than exploring the Master’s universe, without having the Doctor there to save the day”. The cover was illustrated by Paul Cooke and features original characters from the stories in the annual.

The Unofficial Master Annual 2074 is published by Terraqueous Distributors and available from Lulu at the print-on-demand price of £23.32 plus shipping costs). The annual is a not-for-profit publication, and none of the money paid by purchasers goes to the publisher or to any of the contributors.

Later this year, Terraqueous Distributors will be releasing their fourth annual. This time the focus will be on the seventh Doctor. If you would like to contribute to the seventh Doctor annual, please send an email to: Details on the Terraqueous Distributors Facebook page

    What a pity they refer to Delgado as “the original Master”. Do they refer to him as “Koschei” as well?

      Considering the target books have been delayed 7 months I doubt we’ll see the Terrance dicks collection anytime soon. Shame as I was looking forward to it.

      Thanks for reply, yes I was very much excited for this release and is a shame doesn’t look like it’s coming soon but it’s understandable with everything going on just hope will come out when everything is back to normal

      I started reading the terrance books again on the day he passed. Started off with web of fear then quickly decided to read everything of his I have (89 novelisations, novels, factual, short story contributions) and I’m down to just 15 left. I’ve loved it but even so I fully intend to buy and read again this collection so I’m still hoping for an announcement in the next few months.

      Usually takes 3-5 days to print then depends on delivery you choose. Printing times are slightly longer these days but I received mine quite quickly
