The humans manage to create a computer called WOTAN that can think for itself. The only problem is that it thinks everything would be a lot better off if it was running the show! So, you guessed it, it sets out to conquer the world using its deadly War Machines. I was never worried, though. After all, WOTAN couldn't even get my name right! And have I told you about the time that I fought a Sontaran in the far future? I have? Oh, well... next! (see WYBE)
