Is That It?...,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Robot  [DVD]  (DVD)
There is a lot of hype surrounding ROBOT, what with it being Tom Baker's first ever story, but upon viewing it, I couldn't help but feel "Is that it?"
ROBOT is not a bad story, quite evidently a Doctor Who take on Frankenstien's monster. There are some memorable scenes in episode one, most notably the famous wardrobe scene (and Harry Sullivan in the cupboard, classic!), and episode four wraps off the story very nicely. It's episodes 2 and 3 that struggled to hold my attention the most, I just found there was not a lot to them.
The titular Robot looks a bit dated, but this WAS 1974, so certain things can be excused.
This is the start of a great era of Doctor Who, the TOM BAKER era - certainly not one of the best, but a classic in its own right.
