David Collings Chief Mover Poul reads Chris Boucher s seuel to Robots of Death He does a pretty decent job with the material and being audio this gets rid of all the editorial mistakes to be found in the novel itselfThis is still an overly complex plot with far too many characters not enough story and a lame pay off However the audio version really helps bring this alive hence the extra starWorld building and character are excellent and I love the widening of the Robots of Death microcosm to include Kaldor City and of course the hint that it is part of the Blake s 7 universeI struggled a bit with the Carnell sections it s really not until the end when his plot is revealed that you finally understand what s going on but I didn t feel his character came across strongly enough Or maybe it s just he s overshadowed by The Doctor Leela Toos Uvanov Poul Con Padil who are easily accessible I have to wonder if this would have worked better as a full cast radio drama however it s still well worth a listen for Robots of Death and Kaldor City fans

Just as most of the previous readers have stated I was excited to read a seuel to the brilliant Robots of Death serial from Doctor Who It was an enjoyable read however a lot of it was confusing in parts and I found myself re reading paragraphs to try and better understand what was going on not counting the parts that are just misspelt which can sometimes be misleadingthe character of Carnell was referred to as Camel on a few occasions I guess that wasn t picked up by the spell checker as an incorrect wordsnigger Unless of course that was his nickname and I just got confused by the method of the writing at some point Correct me if I m wrong if that is the case I am being a bit harsh to be honest as it had some great moments where I was genuinely gripped Leela in particular had some marvellous action hero moves and the scenes with the returning characters from Robots of Death are rewarding Although Poul gets increasingly annoying The other characters particular Con in my opinion are very well executed and I found myself actually caring about what happened to them A good book that would benefit from a second reading It just seems to lack that Robots of Death feel which I think was a missed opportunity but nonetheless satisfying

Now I m a massive fan of both Doctor Who and Blake s 7 and Chris Boucher s TV work in particular I think Robots of Death is a masterpiece so you can imagine my excitement at a seuel written by Boucher and bringing in Blake s 7 elements here the character of Psycho Strategist Carnell from the B7 episode Weapon and the hint that the world here is part of the B7 wider universe However I can t help being rather disappointed with the resultThe plot is very involved and convoluted and if you have little knowledge of Robots of Death and the concept of a psycho strategist then this is going to make no sense whatsoever It is not a DW adventure you can pick up and enjoy as a general fan and indeed it fails utterly as a stand alone It is very much an episode of the larger multi media whole TV Robots of DeathB7 Weapon Audio Books Kaldor CityThe narrative structure is ghastly We follow 7 separate sets of different characters The DoctorLeela and her new ally PadilPoulUvanovToosCarnellRobot SASV1 and we have a multitude of minor characters as well various techs members of the 20 aristocratic families and a load of anti robot rebels trying to juggle the cast as we weave back and forth between the different stands is a nightmare This reads like a screenplay there s very little description and we get loads of cut scenes we ll leave characters and then rejoin them somewhere else and you have to infer a great deal eg we leave the Doctor and Con being hemmed in by robots at one point and Con breaks the nose of their master Next time we see them the Doctor and Con are in a cage eh You just have to imagine the scene in between You ll also in some cases get explanation after the fact like there being a trap in a docking bay laid for Poul yet we only learn later on why the robots assumed he was going to be thereThe plot itself is over complicated and unsatisfying Part of this is down to the dreadful structure and writing style but the story itself is also problematic I had so many uestions I kept a notebook on hand and of my 10 uestions I had by the end of the novel only 3 were really answered You also have so many different secret agents conspiracies and betrayals that you uestion every single character s loyalties so as well as keeping track of the characters themselves you re also trying to work out who s working for whom and what their motivations are Great in an ongoing series In a novel MAJOR HEADACHE And I have to say that with many of the minor characters I just didn t care It s like oh so this minor aristo s a villain oh okAs well as awkward writing the editing is poor and really gets bad towards the end as if the editor didn t even bother with the last couple of chapters Carnell becomes Carnel Camel and even CapelCappell in a couple of instances which is another character entirely It set me to giggle every time he s referred to as Camel Such a shame because the premise and source material are amazing I also have to give this credit for superb characterisation and some excellent dialogue This also evokes the Robots of Death setting remarkably well I love the universe and tensions and this also brings out lots of Boucher s signature themes The fallibility of human memory Fear of Technology Paranoia secret agents spies and mistrust Aristocracy vs the herd Psycho strategist puppet masters conspiracy manipulation Population control and suppression Robot with a split personality like in DW Face of EvilI also like some of the role reversals here Uvanov working with robotsTaren Capel being the god of the anti robot rebelsThe Doctor being mistaken for Taren CapelIf you are a really in depth Who geek who knows the source material then you are really going to appreciate this one even if the narrative is all over the place character and world building are top notch If you just fancy picking up a random Who novel however this really is not a good one to go for
