Within the context of Doctor Who: The Roleplaying Game, the Game Master - also referred to as the Game Missy or GM - is the person describing the scenario and explaining to the players what the consequences of their actions are. They also play the role of every NPC that the players will encounter on their adventure. Typically, the GM also writes the campaign as well.
To date, almost every main player on the current podcast lineup has GM'd at least one adventure, with the exception of Châu Kate Lê.
