Cover blurb:
Long ago and far away, the Doctor and Leela faced the Robots of Death...

To a society dependant [sic] on robots, the news that these benign, tireless, obedient labourers could be turned into killers would cause panic. So it was kept a secret. In Kaldor City, only the three survivors of the Sandminer massacre know the truth. But now, several years later, they are beginning to show signs of mental breakdown. And once again, the robots are being programmed to kill. Can the dead genius Taren Capel possibly be involved in this new outrage?

Worst of all, this time the deadly robots are not confined to a Sandminer. This time they are loose in Kaldor City. And this time, unless the Doctor and Leela can stop them, they really will destroy the world.

Featuring the Fourth Doctor and Leela, this adventure takes place between the BBC Doctor Who novel LAST MAN RUNNING and the TV story THE TALONS OF WENG-CHIANG.

Cover blurb:
The Doctor and Leela arrive on the planet Kaldor, where they find a society dependent on benign and obedient robots. But they have faced these robots before, on a huge Sandminer in the Kaldor desert, and know they are not always harmless servants...

The only other people who know the truth are the three survivors from that Sandminer — and now they are being picked off one by one. The twisted genius behind that massacre is dead, but someone is developing a new, deadlier breed of robots. This time, unless the Doctor and Leela can stop them, they really will destroy the world...

An adventure featuring the Fourth Doctor, as played by Tom Baker, and his companion Leela
