There's Never Three Times by QueenBoudicca [Reviews - 1]
The Master doesn't understand human concepts of gender, let alone those of the 20th century, so his attempt to sow discord amongst the UNIT team using sexism fails miserably. But at least the Doctor understands. And he gets to use his Inflatable Chair of Death again, so that's a plus! Alternately titled: In Which the Master Tries to Sow Discord and Chaos, Fails, Fails Again, and Then Succeeds, But Only for the Chaos Part.

Characters: Jo Grant, The Doctor (3rd), The Master (Delgado)
