Re: The Master and The War Chief - Why can't they be the same guy?

Wow, this is a blast from the past. And yet, I still stand by what I said four years ago.

Also, I find it interesting that this thread is revived at the same time as discussion over at GallifreyBase concerns a certain upcoming audio play (The Dying Light) and whether it features The War Chief.

It was made plain in the series that The Doctor and The Master have known each-other since childhood. I just never got that vibe from the War Chief, or the Meddling Monk.

The Monk and the Master are definitely not the same, as (in The Time Meddler, anyway, though Gary's book disagrees) the Monk is from 50 years after the Doctor, and isn't a contemporary of his.

The War Chief... could be, as he's clearly the prototype, but the writer who created both characters says they're different, so that's that.

Yep. The War Chief gets gunned down by the War Lord's henchmen, after which they're ordered to "Dispose of the traitor's carcase."
Now he could just, just possibly be seriously injured and faking death till he can regenerate in safety (which is how Terrance Dicks has it in Exodus)... but really, they know he's a Time Lord, you'd think they'd watch out for that sort of trick.

I always try to force the argument that Susan is the Master.

But if Susan is also the Meddling Monk... That's just fricking weird.

Here's a really intriguing and engaging blog post that actually helped convince me to that direction:
