Came across this last night, although it was first broadcast in 2010.
Not the best ever piece of Radio 4 comedy but quite entertaining  😉

Mr Crowley's Christmas

Incredibly unfunny. They could at least have made Nicholas Courtney play JFC Fuller. He's already played Aleister (Lethbridge-Stewart, though spelled Alistair).

Good call! 

Lethbridge Stewart – otherwise known as “The Brigadier”: who, with his clipped upper-class tones, came out with the classic line in the old Dr Who series which most touched upon the ‘occult’, The Daemons, when about to be beset by some bat-like angelic critter in a graveyard (if my memory serves me right) : “Sergeant Yates, chap over there with wings - five rounds rapid”!  Priceless!

Just watched Dr Who and the Daemons again. Whoever wrote the Master's invocations had at least been doig his research, and was careful enough to alter bits:

"Do my will shall be the whole of the law"
"As is my will, so mote it be"
"Eko, Eko Azal!

Following on this minor detour down memory lane, from the novelisation of Dr Who and The Dæmons by Barry Letts (W.H. Allen, 1982) the following must-have-been-deliberate bastardisation of the Law of Thelema - in two different versions, too: with a capital L, and without…  Careful readers may also note the chorus-line of “Io Evohe!” was itself purloined from Captain J.F.C. Fuller’s The Treasure-House of Images and later on Crowley’s The Diary Of a Drug Fiend:

Turning to his chanting acolytes, [The Master] raised a hand. They fell silent.
“To do my will shall be the whole of the Law [sic],” he intoned.
“To do thy will shall be the whole of the Law [sic],” they repeated.  “Io Evohe!  Io Evohe!” (p.151)

The Master’s eyes flashed.  “To do my will shall be the whole of the law [sic].”
“To do thy will shall be the whole of the law [sic].”  The coven, whipped up into a fearful excitement, responded with total sincerity. (p. 153)

It didn’t impress upon me until quite recently, but there was a reasonably close resemblance in Mephistophelean appearance between the original Master, as played by Roger Delgado, and the author upon magick Gerald Suster, both now sadly deceased.

I wonder if they were by any chance related?
