Roger Caesar Marius Bernard de Delgado Torres Castillo Roberto (1 March 1918 18 June 1973) was an English actor best known for being the first actor to play recurring antagonist the Master in the long-running science fiction series Doctor Who. He had a tendency to be typecast as a villain on shows like Danger Man and The Saint. He appeared as the Master in eight serials over the course of three years. A ninth, to be called The Final Game, was planned but scrapped following Delgado's sudden death. He was killed in a car accident while filming a miniseries in Turkey. His friend Jon Pertwee, who played the Third Doctor, said this was a major factor in his decision to leave the series the following year.
