Tue-Wed The Robots of Death eps 1 - 4 of 4
Today on The Doctor Who Show - "I'm A Robot, But I Kill People". We investigate service robots that have developed a desire to kill people. We will also talk to the crew of a sandminer who were threatened by these robots, and to the person who claims responsibility for this mayhem - Taran Capel. And of course, our bouncers stand outside the stage if, as we hope, some gratuitous violence breaks out.
Thu-Fri Robot eps 1 - 4 of 4
Back to the first Tom Baker story, where the Doctor investigates the theft of the information needed to launch nuclear weapons and the plans to a doomsday weapon.
