    The Robots Of Death in their City Of Death sowing the Seeds Of Death making a Paradise Of Death. That's overkill.

    The Robots Of Death was one of the true classics of the show. Why doesn't someone, one of the myriad decision makers on the show, just think a little deeper than normal and get a sequel commissioned for the BBC1 show? Chris is still with us... It can only be an improvement on the sh*t that we've had so far in 2020. I'm confident it would be brilliant.

    We all know this video would get far fewer clicks if they were honest & put 'big finish' in the title. On some level they know that big finish sucks & no one (except weirdos) likes it.

    "Never be cruel, never be cowardly. And never ever eat pears! Remember - hate is always foolish…and love, is always wise. Always try, to be nice and never fail to be kind. Oh, and….and you mustn’t tell anyone your name. No-one would understand it anyway. Except…. Except….children. Children can hear it. Sometimes - if their hearts are in the right place, and the stars are too. Children can hear your name.
    But nobody else. Nobody else. Ever. Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind. Doctor - I let you go"

      Christopher Cervantes these guys have nothing to do with the Cybermen. These Robots are from the 1970’s fourth Doctor story the Robots of Death. They are merely servant robots than began rebelling against their creators

      This is a trailer for a Big Finish audio spin-off, so it's highly unlikely any of this will be in the new series of the show.

  • Kian2002

    Robots of Death is one if the truly great stand alone stories of Doctor Who; dealing in concepts ('robophobia' ie robots don't naturally emote like humans thus instill fear at subconscious level leading to cumulative mental trauma) and lessons (slavery is ultimately self-defeating because it creates weakness through dependency and complacency leading to societal decadence) that should never be forgotten. I love the fact that styling of the 'robots' was reproduce in Star Trek Voyager 'Prototype' (S2, E13) & again in The Orville character of Isaac, a member of the Kaylon race, that destroyed their own creators. Robots of Death is a truly terrifying 'who done it' and I sincerely hope there is more to tell in this trope, as this video shows?

    Nothing against big finish, but i saw this thumbnail and got excited that the robots of death were coming back in series 11. Kinda feel let down now

    • PC Andy Infinite
      PC Andy Infinite Month ago

      Iain 97 well considering that the thumbnail only has the robots on them and the title didn’t suggest anything about it being Big Finish related I can understand why they initially made the assumption that it was for series 12

    • Iain 97

      I may be wrong but I don't believe there is any surviving film elements in season 14,either
