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.

Tom Baker has a superb baritone voice, that lends itself nicely to this adventure
story.A pity that he has to convey the whole story alone.Sound effects and a little
music would make this even more enjoyable.Still, one of the more believable Dr Who plots.

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.
