Nothing has ever been officially confirmed, but there is a rumour that on a Sandminer, bound for Kaldor City, the robots somehow turned homicidal and nearly wiped out the entire crew. Can that really be true?

The robot transport ship Lorelei has a cargo of over 157,000 robots on board, all deactivated. So even if there were any truth in the rumour of that massacre, there'd...more

Some Spoilers here:

My expectations for Robophobia were, perhaps, unreasonably high. It seemed hyped a bit before its release, and Nicholas Briggs seemed rather excited about having written and put it together. I really like Robots of Death a lot, thinking that its worst fault is that it should clearly have been called Corpse marker instead. So, yes, I was really looking forward to Robophobia.

It's intriguing enough and kept me listening, but I'm a bit on the fence about it. In some ways it's a ve...more
If you were to force me to pick my single favorite televised Doctor Who story, I might well choose Robots of Death. First, because it actually seriously engages with a science-fictional idea (albeit one largely stolen from Isaac Asimov). Second, because of its visual design, especially of the robots, which perfectly illustrate the idea of the uncanny valley, being just not-human enough to be creepy. And third, because Leela's in it.

So, I wasn't entirely sure how I'd feel about a direct sequel d...more

Nicholas Briggs' Robophobia is an excellent sequel to Robots of Death, whose events are only dimly known to the crew of the robot freighter where the Seventh Doctor lands. It's an sfnal murder mystery, with a good script and excellent delivery, the cast including Nicola Walker from Spooks, Big Finish regular (and TV Dalek operator) Nicholas Pegg, and Toby Hadoke of Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf; strongly recommended.
The Doctor arrives on a spaceship transporting over a hundred thousand potentially deadly robots.
