Why did you decide to pitch a story for Master Pieces?
I adore stories that are out of the box, excuse the pun, especially those connected to the world of Doctor Who, and to be honest, I have always wondered what went on behind closed doors in the Master's ultimately lonely life.

What are you most proud of about your story?
The fact that it made me laugh. Which was the intention so thank goodness for that.

Can you give us a little taster of what the readers can expect from your piece?
What do you do when you run out of ideas to kill off your sworn enemy? The Delgado Master at his hammiest hits a brick wall and resorts to a new method to conjure up ideas.

How did you find the writing process?
Fun. And linear. I started at the start and ended at the end. Unusual for me but there you are. I found I could occupy Delgado's shoes really quickly and comfortably which made me realise how much Doctor Who is intrinsically part of my DNA. Delgado's Master had a wicked sense of humour too..

What were the biggest challenges?
Tech. My stupid laptop decided to stop working and I had to suck the document out of the computer with a plastic tube. Well it felt like it anyway.

Where else we can find your work?
Gosh. Wattpad under Montagfire I suppose is active, I do music on Soundcloud and Mixcloud, eventing in Exeter and acting too.
I am working with Pixel Playbox writing a text adventure app (I do voice acting for them too) which is uber hard. Also, I am working on another Doctor Who story with my bestie Simon Brett which involves the fifth Doctor which I am loving, Simon makes me laugh, a lot.

What’s your favourite Master story?
That is hard. Very hard. I love The Sea Devils for Delgado's suave performance but also The Deadly Assassin as an experience of terror and weirdness (I was 6).

Who do you think should play the next Master and why?
Ben Kingsley would be terrifying , those eyes! Have you seen him in Sexy Beast? He can dangerous, suave, charming and a maniac. Plus he can play Gandhi, so a good master of disguise. Oh, and he can wear a good beard too.
