Geoffrey Beevers played the third incarnation of The Master on Doctor Who. He made a single appearance, in the 1981 Fourth Doctor serial "The Keeper of Trakken".
The Doctor and Adric are summoned to the planet Trakken by its Keeper, who fears that an ancient evil known as Melkur has revived and is about to seize the source of the planet's highly advanced technology. Melkur is, in fact, the Master -- still highly degenerated, but this time seeking new lives by draining Trakken of its power.
A slightly less-degenerated Master was seen because viewers had objected to the too-scary version that appeared in 1976.
