Doctor Who-The Robots of Death SE DVD Review

The second story of Leela’s time with the Doctor is “The Robots of Death” which this time has come out as a special edition from BBC Home Video through Warner Home Video.  The story plays out as a futuristic version of Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians” where the robot servants of a mineral digging operation on a distant planet kill their masters but for what reason?  Fine performances all round!  The disc also includes an Audio Commentary with Tom Baker and Louise Jameson, Pamela Salem and Producer Phillip Hinchcliffe and writer Chris Boucher, a making of documentary about the story and a photo gallery with production notes on the story.


The video quality is great!  The performance was done on videotape and there are a few dropouts of picture and sound.  The total story is performance is 99 minutes long.


Was originally recorded in Mono.  It is also Mono on this set.
