The 4th Doctor's first adventure concerns a 7 foot tall robot being manipulated to steal nuclear plans and info, leaving death and destruction in its path. Who would use a robot for evil? (Ok - who wouldn't?) But who would have such a convoluted plan and access to such a machine? The Doctor tries to track down the culprits before nuclear war begins - or the robot develops a will of its own.
