Uh no.

I suspect the "confusion" over this in some quarters of fandom is down to so many of them being like Trenchard and having no comprehension of the idea of someone having a sense of humour. ;)

Of course he didn't. However, John Simm's shitehouse Master thought the Teletubbies were fantastic.

The fact we have this debate on here kind of means it's left open to interpretation, which is the way some things should be. Delgado's Master had some subtlety and mystery about him, unlike most of his successors in the role (though I think Ainley could have been stronger if he'd got some more Survival-style characterisation).

Thinking about some of the shite monsters that he came across on a weekly basis, I wouldn't blame him if he did. The clangers were a step-up in one or two cases. (Kronos, chicken-man on a string anyone?)
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

Kronos wasn't amazing, but at least they used various effects techniques to try to disguise its awfulness.

Now, the Myrka....

If Anthony Ainley ever met the Myrka I'd forgive him for believing the horse in Rentaghost was real.

Kronos is awesome, creepy as fuck when I was a kid.
