An alternative universe Doctor Who story, featuring the Master, which asks ”What if it had been the Seventh Doctor dealing with the Draconians and the Master in The Frontier in Space?” 

This story was first published in Master Switches, an unofficial Doctor Who short story collection raising money for The Stroke Association.

Master Switches - Cover

After a series of adventures without the Doctor, the many incarnations of the Master are back to doing what they do best: scheming to bring down their greatest adversary. The proverbial thorn in the side has made a hobby out of thwarting the Master’s plans for universal domination. But even the Doctor can’t always be the hero, the victor, and the star. Sometimes, the Master must take the Doctor’s place…

Master Switches is an unofficial charity anthology in aid of The Stroke Association.
