The Deadly Assassin
The Doctor is suddenly summoned to Gallifrey, the home of the Time Lords, where his ghastly hallucination of the President’s assassination seems to turn into reality. When the Doctor is arrested for the murder, there is a hideous, dark, cowled figure gleefully watching in the shadows.
Faced with his old enemy, the Master, Doctor Who approaches defeat in a battle of minds in a nightmare world created by the Master’s imagination. But the Master’s evil intentions go much further — he has a Doomsday Plan. It is up to the Doctor to prevent him from destroying Gallifrey and taking over the Universe!
Doctor Who — awarded The Writers’ Guild Award for the best British children’s original drama script.

- This story was also first story no companions allowed on Gallifrey but were allowed from The Invasion of Time as Leela and K9 were with the Doctor, unless it was the Master who ordered it without him knowing.
- Peter Pratt played the original Master but he passed away a long time ago so Geoffrey Beevers who played character in similar form in The Keeper of Traken reads the audio
