Recced because: Everything about the Doctor/Master dynamic is some kind of power play, but it's not often that the Doctor is overtly the one in control. This story starts off as a "game" of physical power and sensory deprivation kinks (blindfolding, a sort of breathplay if one considers the symbolism breathing holds for an android that doesn't really need it), with the sci-fi twist of a creator/created relationship. But at some point the tables turn, though at the end I'm not entirely sure it wasn't the Doctor's plan all along. It's hot, kinky, and a psychological character study all in one, for a Doctor/Master pairing that doesn't usually get a lot of attention.


It's true that the Master tends to treat bodies as things he inhabits rather than as part and parcel of himself. But it's unsettling to have it made so obvious that this form does not belong to him. Indeed, if the android shell belongs to anyone, it belongs to the Doctor. He built and wired it, fitting the pieces together in order to provide an imitation of life. He knows the Master's body better than the Master himself.

If you didn't know them, if you were just told that single fact without context, this might sound romantic. It's something that lovers say. 'I know you better than you know yourself.'
