imfeduptoo answers:

Peter Pratt (21 March 1923 – 11 January 1995) was an English actor and singer who started his career in the Gilbert and Sullivan comic operas, becoming the principal comedian of the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, and later moved to radio and television work.

He appeared in the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who in the role of the Master in the serial The Deadly Assassin, primarily because an actor with a strong voice was required for two reasons; the character's face was unseen for most of the serial and, even when seen, a strong voice was needed to project through the thick face mask that covered the actor's face. (1976)
