SYNOPSIS

`Look, Brigadier! It’ growing!’ screamed Sarah.

The Brigadier stared in amazement as the Robot began to grow … and grow … swelling to the size of a giant!

Slowly the metal colossus, casting its enormous shadow upon the surrounding trees and buildings, began to stride towards the Brigadier. A giant metal hand reached down to grasp him … Can DOCTOR WHO defeat the evil forces controlling the Robot before they execute their plans to blackmail – or destroy – the world?

DEVIATIONS FROM THE TELEVISED STORY

  • When the Third Doctor regenerates, he is described as writhing and twisting in agony.
  • The Fourth Doctor spends several days in sick bay, rather than a few minutes.
  • In the televised story, Harry drives Bessie towards the Robot so The Doctor can pour the metal virus on it. In the novelisation, he drives the Brigadier’s Land Rover to do it instead.
