''[[AC:Series/DoctorWho]]''!!Recurring Enemies
[[AC:[[Characters/DoctorWhoMasters The Master]] is seen as the ArchEnemy of the Doctor for a very good reason.]]
* The "[[EvilCounterpart UNIT Years]]" Master is the first incarnation to appear in the series and still remains one of the worst. The Master is a petty megalomaniac who hides under [[WickedCultured a veneer of suave charm and culture]]. Murdering a scientist in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E1TerrorOfTheAutons his first appearance]], the Master leaves his shrunken corpse to signify his arrival. [[DiabolicalMastermind Masterminding]] the Nestene invasion, the Master causes numerous casualties and hypnotizes Jo into blowing herself up, along with the Doctor and everyone within the UNIT Headquarters. When this fails, the Master engineers his other nefarious plans: using a mind parasite to kill people through experiencing their worst fears; trying to start WorldWarIII with a nuclear missile; assisting the Sea Devils in reconquering the Earth by wiping out mankind, just to spite the Doctor and his love of humanity; using Kronos to destroy the entire civilization of Atlantis; and framing the Earth and Draconian Empire's for attacks on one-another, hoping to engineer a bloody war between the two, leaving them too weak to fight off an upcoming Dalek invasion. On the brink of death, the Master manipulates the ambitious Goth into assassinating the Lord High President, framing the Doctor, while he enacts a plan to ensure his survival, almost wiping out the Time Lords in the process. When this also fails, the Master plots his revenge for decades before trying to take the Doctor's body and remaining regenerations. Cruel until the end, this incarnation's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E6TheKeeperOfTraken final act]] is to [[GrandTheftMe hijack the body]] of the kind-hearted Tremas, killing him in the process.
* The aforementioned incarnation results in the "[[CardCarryingVillain Tremas]]" Master who has the highest body count of any Master. This Master posesses all the [[EvilGenius intelligence]] of his predecessors, coupled with a thoroughly unstable mind. [[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E7Logopolis First seen]] while attempting to conquer Logopolis, the Master's attack causes the universe to begin collapsing, destroying a quarter of it before the obliteration is stopped. Pretending to help the Doctor stop the destruction of the universe, the Master betrays and tries to use the peril to take control of the universe, lest he allow it to be destroyed and kills the incarnation of the Doctor when he foils his plans. Kidnapping Adric, the Master uses him as a living computer to painfully force him to create Castrovalva to almost kill the recently regenerated Doctor. Attempting to steal the power of the nearly extinct [[EnergyBeings Xeraphin]], the Master murders the first-born Xeraphin and engineers a schism that results in a purely malevolent nature for the Xeraphin HiveMind. Sending vicious Cheetah People to Earth, the Master kidnaps many innocent humans to use as prey or be infected and become Cheetah People themselves. Infected himself, he engineers his escape to Earth and tries to build an army of Cheetah People from a supply of brainwashed youths. Uncaring that his meddling would result in the obliteration of Earth, this incarnation of the Master was a destructive sociopath who reveled in his own vile nature.
* The "[[PsychopathicManchild Harold Saxon]]" Master is an unfathomably cruel, [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish]] psychopath who first appears in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E11Utopia Utopia]]". After successfully conquering Earth, the Master orders the population be decimated for no other reason than to satisfy his own violent impulses. Becoming a despot, the Master forces prisoners to watch as he incinerates Japan for his own amusement and abuses his servants and [[DomesticAbuse even his own wife]]. When the Master's mistreatment of his wife leads her to fatally shoot him, he refuses to regenerate, amused by the pain the Doctor will feel at being the last of the Time Lords. Once resurrected, the Master returns with an unending hunger, which he satisfies by trying to devour all humans. Although seemingly killed by Rassilon, the Master returns, creating a facility which agonizingly converts people into [[Characters/DoctorWhoCybermen Cybermen]] and kills his own future incarnation, putting his own existence in jeopardy to avoid any version of himself aiding the Doctor.
* The [[AxCrazy "O"]] Master [[SanitySlippage sheds any remaining semblance of sanity]] and becomes a full-on unhinged psychopath. Even before [[Recap/DoctorWhoS38E1E2Spyfall his first appearance]], he had already slaughtered everyone on Gallifrey upon learning of the Doctor's identity as the Timeless Child. On Earth, the Master organized the invasion of interdimensional beings known as the [[EldritchAbomination Kasaavin]], hoping to use them to kill everyone on Earth before taking care of them and his accomplice, Daniel Barton. Returning in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS38E10TheTimelessChildren the season 38 finale]], the Master tortured the Doctor with the truth about the Timeless Child, all the while luring Ashad, the Lone Cyberman, to Gallifrey before killing him and using the Cyberium to create Time Lord-Cyberman hybrids to conquer the universe.

[[AC:Others]]
* [[EldritchAbomination The Great Intelligence]] was one of The Doctor's vilest and most powerful recurring foes. Arrogant, extremely callous, and sadistic in nature, on multiple occasions the Intelligence attempted to conquer the Earth and [[KillAllHumans wipe out mankind]], solely to grant itself a permanent physical form. [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E2TheAbominableSnowmen For one such plot in his debut]], the Intelligence enslaved a kindly Tibetan monk, and kept the man alive for three hundred years solely to serve it, leaving its victim with just enough freedom to [[AndIMustScream be aware of this]] and to be tormented by the knowledge of [[PeoplePuppets what he had been used for]]. A being of pure consciousness, the Intelligence casually used its powers to brainwash, [[DemonicPossession possess innocent people]], or [[YourSoulIsMine harvest the souls of living beings]] in the pursuit of its plans. The Intelligence also practiced a cruel form of destruction on people, manipulating them since childhood until it throws their lives away for its own benefit. Enraged by its defeats, the Intelligence made a final attempt to utterly break the Doctor by personally undoing every single victory he had ever won and destroying every friendship he had ever made by infecting every moment of the Doctor's lifetime, forcing him to feel this happening to him as he does so. Despite the great destruction this would cause throughout the universe and even though this would be fatal to the Intelligence as well, [[TakingYouWithMe it was happy to do this purely out of spite at the Doctor foiling its selfish schemes]].
* [[MadScientist Davros]], the creator of [[Characters/DoctorWhoDaleks the Daleks]], who debuted in season 12's "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E4GenesisOfTheDaleks Genesis of the Daleks]]", was a [[EvilCripple crippled scientist]] on the planet Skaro wherein two races were locked in a civil war. To win, Davros created the Daleks: powerful, murderous creatures that could feel only hate and rage for every other species. To finalize the Daleks, when his superiors were about to cancel his immoral research, Davros engineered their extinction. Davros would return many times, improving his Daleks to wipe out or subjugate all other life with himself at their head and achieved the extermination of countless life forms. When he returned in modern times, Davros unleashed them on earth, revealing a new objective: to cause a massive chain reaction with a Reality Bomb that would result in [[OmnicidalManiac total destruction]]. Nearing his death, he used the Doctor's guilt to manipulate him into coming to Skaro and then [[BaitTheDog takes advantage of his pity]] to sap his regeneration energy to create Time Lord-Dalek hybrids. A man who has admitted he would unleash a virus to end all life solely [[ForTheEvulz because he could]], Davros is a man who seeks power that will put him [[AGodAmI above the gods]], and has remained one of the Doctor's most evil and tenacious foes.
* [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist Rassilon]], debuting in "[[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors The Five Doctors]]", is the [[FallenHero once-proud leader]] of the [[Characters/DoctorWhoTimeLords Time Lords]]. After he became twisted, Rassilon [[ItsAllAboutMe sought immortality and power at the expense of all reality and everything that lived]]. Rassilon was the one responsible for the Master's madness, hoping to use him as an eventual pawn. Over the course of the Time War between Time Lords and Daleks, Rassilon opted for a FinalSolution: [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime to wipe out all of space and time]] so the Time Lords would remain as pure consciousness, yoked to his will because [[KnightTemplar he didn't see any other way to end it]]. Making things worse, he kills unnamed Time Lords for suggesting that they allow the Doctor to wipe out Gallifrey and end the Time War for the good of the rest of the universe and all that are suffering in it, because he doesn't want to die. With Gallifrey's survival, Rassilon [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E12HellBent hatches a scheme]] to trap the Doctor in his confession dial, resulting in the death of Clara and the Doctor trapped for four and a half billion years where he would die and return to life over and over again in a horrific cycle. When the Doctor finally escapes and returns to Gallifrey and refuses to cooperate with him, Rassilon tries to have him executed, despite everyone else seeing him as a war hero. Even in the past, Rassilon had showed a predilection for [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide "cleansing" lesser species]], and knows his actions will release a variety of evil and demonic forces that had been locked away after the Time War, but he does not care about this, viewing everything as secondary to his own ego

* [[CriminalDoppelganger Ramón Salamander]], from season 5's "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E4TheEnemyOfTheWorld The Enemy Of The World]]", while [[VillainWithGoodPublicity renowned publicly as a genius whose inventions helped the food shortage]], secretly has his sights set on world domination. Keeping dozens of scientists prisoner [[BeneathTheEarth in an underground shelter]] for five years, Salamander convinced them that a nuclear war rages on the surface and so they must create natural disasters to fight back at the evil armies ravaging the world. In fact, the disasters are killing innocent people, and Salamander is using them to [[EngineeredHeroics gain popularity by leading relief efforts and predicting where the disasters will strike]], while also discrediting the helpless officials. Others Salamander has been systematically killing, replacing all of them with people under his control. Caring nothing for his followers, Salamander never hesitates to remove those who outlive their usefulness, discrediting his original partner-in-crime and poisoning one of his puppets when he's unable to kill his superior. Suave, cunning and audacious as he is, at heart Salamander is nothing more than a power-hungry mass murderer, who manipulates innocents into killing innocents, all for his own benefit.

The Collector has created a brutal dystopia in which the humans are no more than slaves, where every aspect of their lives, including breathing, are taxed, often creating a vicious cycle in which they are forced to work extra shifts to pay their debts, using medicine which is also taxed to keep them awake, until they are DrivenToSuicide.

He sentences Leela to a painful execution being boiled alive, gleefully noting "[[LovesTheSoundOfScreaming This is the point where I get a real sense of job satisfaction]]."

He gained the monopoly by going into business with android builder Sharaz Jek, who built the androids needed to harvest the toxic raw spectrox, then [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness set Jek up to be killed in an eruption of boiling mud]]. Jek survived and took revenge by using his android army to take control of the spectrox cave, but Morgus responded by financing a military expedition against him and then paying gunrunners to supply Jek with weapons in exchange for spectrox, [[WarForFunAndProfit deliberately prolonging the war]] so spectrox will remain scarce and [[{{Greed}} he can charge higher prices]].

He arranges to have one of his own mines blown up just to increase the scarcity of the copper produced there, [[LackOfEmpathy with massive loss of life]], and closes down several factories, making the workers unemployed, then has them shipped to labor camps on the opposite side of the planet where he has just opened factories, turning his paid labor force into [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil his slaves]]. When the Doctor and Peri are suspected of being gunrunners, he orders them executed without trial as scapegoats.

Determined to wipe out this last Chimeron and the only surviving witness to his crime, Gavrok first goes to the tollport where she was last seen, gets all the information the tollmaster has out of him, tells him he's free to go then shoots him InTheBack. He puts up a bounty for information on Delta's whereabouts, and when a BountyHunter contacts him to say she's on Earth, he gets a fix on the man's beacon and then blows it up, killing him. He blows up a bus full of innocent tourists, killing dozens, in case Delta is on board. When the Doctor approaches him under a white flag, Gavrok casually blows it away. And just to make his monstrosity plain, he WouldHurtAChild: On leading his final assault, he tells his men to kill everyone else but leave the princess, who has [[BizarreAlienBiology now developed to the appearance of a young teenager]], for him, seemingly just [[ForTheEvulz for the satisfaction]].

Capricorn's plan is to have the ship crash into Earth, where the explosion of its engines will wipe out the entire population. The board will be blamed and Capricorn can retire quietly with money he has hidden away. To top it all off he ensures he himself is hidden aboard the ship, so he can watch as his plan comes into fruition. Possessing perhaps the [[EvilIsPetty pettiest]] reasons to commit mass murder in entire franchise, the Doctor rightfully views Capricorn with the disgust and contempt he deserves:
--> A retirement plan? Two thousand people on board this ship, six billion beneath us, all of them slaughtered and why? Because Max Capricorn is a loser!

House then decides to use the Doctor's companions Amy and Rory as its new toys, forcing them into the labyrinth of the TARDIS corridors, torturing the two of them with nightmarish illusions, and taunting them with its catchphrase: "Why shouldn't I just kill you now?" House is a being that operates solely according to its sadistic principles of amusement and enjoys torturing whoever is unlucky enough to fall into its grasp. Death might be certain, but House makes certain that when the end comes, its victims will wish for death.
* [[EvilMatriarch Mrs.]] Winifred [[EvilOldFolks Gillyflower]], from season 33's "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E11TheCrimsonHorror The Crimson Horror]]", presents herself as [[FauxAffablyEvil kind hearted, altruistic old woman]], but is really a petty MadScientist who stands out through sheer scope. Opening Sweetville factory, publicly portrayed as a vision of the future, the entire place was really a trap so she could kidnap those she deemed "[[MasterRace perfect]]". Through the manipulation of Red Leech venom, Mrs. Gillyflower brainwashed her followers and put her victims into suspended animation, any "rejects" simply tossed into the sewers. Mrs. Gillyflower planned to launch vast quantities of the poison into the atmosphere, [[OmnicidalManiac wiping out all life on Earth]], simply so she, and her chosen few could create a new Eden in her image. She denies [[AbusiveParents her own daughter, Ada]] , a place in her new world condemning her to death because of Ada's blindnessóeven though it was she who blinded Ada, [[GuineaPigFamily when experimenting upon her with the venom]] to provide a cure for herself.

Trapping it into the bottom of River Thames, Sutcliffe found a particularly vile way of using the creature for personal gain. During the Frost Fairs, he would lure innocent people onto the ice where he would [[FedToPigs feed them to the creature]]. The creature would then [[HumanResources defecate the human remains]], which Sutcliffe would then have molded into bricks to burn in his mill, having discovered they burned vastly superior, as well as being cheaper, than coal. Sutcliffe has [[SerialKiller done this for many years]], racking up a body count of possibly hundreds, [[WouldHurtAChild children]] included. When the last Frost Fair occurs in 1814, Sutcliffe decides to plant explosives onto the ice's surface to detonate, destroying the ice and causing dozens of people to be devoured by the creature, and later straps The Doctor and Bill Potts onto them. Upon witnessing them escape and warning people to get off the ice, Sutcliffe goes forward with his plan and detonates the explosives attempting to kill them and anyone else still on the ice. [[CardCarryingVillain Self-admitting]] to be without "[[TheSociopath an ounce of compassion]]" and solely motivated by {{greed}}, Sutcliffe is a perfect example that sometimes [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans can be just evil as any extraterrestrial threat]].

Lumic is a coldblooded, cold-blooded, amoral snake of a man who was suffering from a terminal illness. To discover a path to immortality, Lumic had homeless people abducted and experimented upon to convert them into Cybermen, leaving their human brains trapped [[AndIMustScream in robot bodies, forced to act to their programming]]. When the British Government government refused to bankroll Lumic's project, he decided to overthrow it by dispatching a horde of Cybermen to liquidate any potential dissidents to his rule, intending to eventually spread them across the globe.
* [[ItsAllAboutMe Max Capricorn]], from the 2007 Christmas Special "[[Recap/DoctorWho2007CSVoyageOfTheDamned Voyage of The Damned]]", is a {{cyborg}} cyborg [[CorruptCorporateExecutive businessman]] who founded and owns a space liner company. Seeking revenge against the company's new board for voting him out, he attempts to [[DisproportionateRetribution frame them for genocide]]. Bribing the terminally ill captain of one of the cruise liners to lower shields and allow the ship to be critically damaged by a meteor storm, he causes the deaths of most of the two thousand crew and passengers, with Capricorn reprogramming the ship's robot servants to wipe out any survivors. Capricorn's plan is to have the ship crash into Earth, where the explosion of its engines will wipe out the entire population. The board will be blamed and Capricorn can retire quietly with money he has hidden away. To top it all off he ensures he himself is hidden aboard the ship, so he can watch as his plan comes into fruition. Possessing perhaps the [[EvilIsPetty pettiest]] reasons to commit mass murder in entire franchise, the Doctor rightfully views Capricorn with the disgust and contempt he deserves:
--> A retirement plan? Two thousand people on board this ship, six billion beneath us, all of them slaughtered and why? Because Max Capricorn is a loser!

Opening Sweetville factory, publicly portrayed as a vision of the future, the entire place was really a trap so she could kidnap those she deemed "[[MasterRace perfect]]". Through the manipulation of Red Leech venom, Mrs. Gillyflower brainwashed her followers and put her victims into suspended animation, any "rejects" simply tossed into the sewers. Mrs. Gillyflower planned to launch vast quantities of the poison into the atmosphere, [[OmnicidalManiac wiping out all life on Earth]], Earth, simply so she, and her chosen few few, could create a new Eden in her image.

When the last Frost Fair occurs in 1814, Sutcliffe decides to plant explosives onto the ice's surface to detonate, destroying the ice and causing dozens of people to be devoured by the creature, and later straps The Doctor and Bill Potts onto them.

** The Roger Delgado incarnation, debuting in season 8's "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E1TerrorOfTheAutons Terror of the Autons]]", is the epitome of FauxAffablyEvil and was often quite helpful to the Doctor if it served his purposes. He is also a petty, spiteful, murderous megalomaniac who values nothing more than power and angering the Doctor. Indeed, he admits in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS9E3TheSeaDevils "The Sea Devils"]] that the only reason he's helping the eponymous creatures KillAllHumans is because the Doctor is fond of humans. Afterwards, at the end of his final regeneration and at the brink of death, he values nothing more than survival. Species, planets, even whole sections of the universe; there is no limit to what he will destroy to survive. And he finally achieves this by killing and hijacking the body of [[PropheticNames Tremas]], quite probably the friendliest and most helpful person the Doctor has ever met who wasn't one of his [[TrueCompanions companions]] (and thereby forcing the Doctor to look at the face of a murdered friend every time he fights him from then on).
** The resultant Anthony Ainley incarnation lacked any sort of foresight or consideration for the consequences of his actions, and, in a way, that made him even more dangerous. His [[Recap/DoctorWhoS18E6TheKeeperOfTraken first appearance]] has him accidentally obliterate approximately a quarter of the entire universe and go on to cause further death and destruction almost for the sheer fun of it. This incarnation of The Master was far less reserved, murdering any in his way and treating their deaths with a cool, amused disdain. Even the extermination of countless billions was nothing more than a pebble in the Master's path.

After [[DoctorWhoS29E13LastOfTheTimeLords conquering]] the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E12TheSoundOfDrums Earth]] (the planet [[ResetButton got better]]), his [[PresidentEvil first action]] is to, for no reason whatsoever, order the execution of a tenth of the population.

Ultimately aspiring to conquer the whole of time and space, the only reason he refrains from enacting a KillEmAll ending is because ''[[ItsAllAboutMe he]]'' would also die.

After [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime he was resurrected]], he started [[ImAHumanitarian eating humans]] to satisfy his new, never-ending hunger.

After he became twisted, Rassilon [[ItsAllAboutMe sought immortality and power at the expense of all reality and everything that lived]]. Rassilon was the one responsible for the Master's madness, hoping to use him as an eventual pawn. Over the course of the Time War between Time Lords and Daleks, Rassilon opted for a final solution: to wipe out all of space and time so the Time Lords would remain as pure consciousness, yoked to his will because he didn't see any other way to end it. Making things worse he kills unnamed Timelords Time Lords for suggesting that they allow the Doctor to wipe out Gallifray Gallifrey and end the Time War for the good of the rest of the universe and all that are suffering in it, because he doesn't want to die.die. With Gallifrey's survival, Rassilon hatches a scheme to trap the Doctor in his confession dial, resulting in the death of Clara and the Doctor trapped for four and a half billion years. When the Doctor finally escapes and returns to Gallifrey and refuses to cooperate with him, Rassilon tries to have him executed, despite everyone else seeing him as a war hero. Even in the past, Rassilon had showed a predilection for [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide "cleansing" lesser species]] and knows his actions will release a varieties of evil and demonic forces that had been locked away after the Time War, but he does not care about this.

* [[EldritchAbomination Sutekh the Destroyer]], from season 13's "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E3PyramidsOfMars Pyramids of Mars]]", is a {{sadist}}ic monster who desires nothing less than the [[OmnicidalManiac extermination of all that lives]] so that nothing could challenge him. Once the security chief of the Osirian race, Sutekh grew so paranoid he even had his own loyal people slaughtered by his monster followers, climaxing in him destroying his home planet and the majority of his species, which forced the remaining 740 Osirians to band together and [[SealedEvilInACan seal him away]]. Several thousands of years later, archaeologist Marcus Scarman opened his tomb. Sutekh murdered him and took control of his body in an attempt to free himself. He also had a [[TheFundamentalist devoted servant]] cooked to death as he didnít need him, was responsible for several innocent bystanders being strangled or crushed at the hand of his robotic servants, and finally personally [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured]] the Doctor before taking control of him. Upon release, Sutekh planned to use his immense powers to exterminate all that lived, declaring "all life is my enemy", knowing that nothing, not even the Time Lords, could challenge him.

* Thawn, from season 16's "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS16E5ThePowerOfKroll The Power of Kroll]]", is the head of a methane refinery on a satellite to which the native population have already been relocated by human settlers. Thawn's desire to see the operation expand results in him planning genocide against the native Swampies so he can expand onto their settlement. [[PretextForWar To this end]], he pays a gunrunner to supply them with faulty weapons, so they're not actually a threat but he can use the weapons as an excuse to slaughter them and then claim self-defense. When his plans get disrupted by the arrival of swamp monster [[GiantSquid Kroll]], he laughs in delight as Kroll attacks the Swampies village openly hoping it might wipe them out, a moment that leaves [[PunchClockVillain his entire crew]] [[HeelRealization staring in disgust]]. He then decides to take advantage of the situation by launching a bombardment against Kroll, while also wiping out the Swampies as "collateral damage". Openly expressing his contempt for them, Thawn regularly talks about the Swampies [[FantasticRacism as though they're mere animals]], outright stating that his Swampie servant doesn't count as a person. When one of his crew objects and tries to stop the bombardment, Thawn, without a momentís hesitation, Thawn shoots him InTheBack. Despite his overall low standing, by being willing to wipe out an entire race out of irrational hatred and [[{{Greed}} the prospect of commercial gain]], Thrawn managed to sink to a depth of depravity matched by few.
