Format: Audio CD
This is another enjoyable release in the range of audiobook versions of the Target range of DOCTOR WHO novelisations first released in the 1970s. DOCTOR WHO AND THE GIANT ROBOT is an adaptation of ROBOT, the first story to feature Tom Baker in the title role back in 1974. This story, which pays homage in no small way to King Kong, features (not surprisingly) a Giant Robot that has been reprogrammed to serve the fascist and apocalyptic aims of the sinister Scientific Reform Society. That this reprogramming plays havoc with the artificial "emotions" of the Robot, takes the story in surprising and sometimes quite touching directions.

Terrance Dicks has created a crackingly entertaining and engaging little tale. He has pretty much followed and expanded upon his own original television scripts and as this is one of the earlier stories that he ever adapted for the range, he really expands very well on the television version, which, if you should want to experience it, is available on DVD.

Those early Target DOCTOR WHO books were amongst the strongest in the entire range - some of the later ones could tend towards the slight - and really have managed to stand the test of time as entertaining, diverting and well told stories in their own right.

TOM BAKER is on reading duties this time around and is his usual professional self, and having one of the country's most familiar voices reading a story about the character for which he is most readily recognized - and playing all the other parts as well - is a rather excellent combination.

CD Info.

What's The Story.
Can the Doctor, now in his fourth incarnation, Recover from his post regenerative trauma to save the Earth from a giant Robot that is being controlled & manipulated by a scientific group known as 'Think Tank' & stop their diabolical scheme for world domination?

Timelord Thoughts.
This is a excellent audiobook based on Tom Baker's first Tv story titled 'Robot' which sees the newly regenerated Fourth Doctor aiding UNIT in investigating a scientific group called Think Tank who seem to be plotting world domination & have reprogrammed a intelligent Robot to kill anyone who gets in there way.

Tom Baker's rich narration is outstanding & draws the listener into this exciting adventure, Baker, with his amazing familiar vocal tones easily brings this story to life & ignites our imaginations & paces the story extremely well.

This audiobook also features the occasional sound effects & music that together with Bakers's rich voice help create a wonderful atmospheric listen.

Overall, Doctor Who & The Giant Robot is a thoroughly entertaining audiobook & one of the best releases in the Target Audiobooks range & brought to life with stunning narration by the legend that is the Fourth Doctor himself - Tom Baker.

Timelord Rating.

Format: Audio CD
The grandaddy of Doctor Who writers, Terrance Dicks, produced another classic with his adaptation of this 1974 TV debut story for Tom Baker's Fourth Doctor. The Doctor and Sarah-Jane Smith battle the eponymous metal monster with the help of The Timelord's sometime employers UNIT. Tom Baker instantly made the part his own with this story and once he recovers from his latest regeneration he is a whirlwind of action, teeth and curly hair. Baker himself narrates, and his rich and sonorous tones are easily the best for this medium and place this at the top of the collection so far. With the artwork matching its 1975 paperback counterpart it is an essential part of any fan's collection.
