Cover blurb:
'That's impossible. Robots can't kill.'

A literate science-fiction mystery set in an elegant, multicultural future society, The Robots of Death (1977) represents a synthesis of a witty script, beautiful design and clever, sympathetic casting. This Black Archive examines these elements contributing to the story's alchemical brilliance, alongside the themes of artificial intelligence, class and power in the works of scriptwriter Chris Boucher, and the titular robots' legacy, including their reinterpretation in audio and stage plays.

Fiona Moore is a writer and academic who has written guides to Blake's 7, The Prisoner and Battlestar Galactica.


THE BLACK ARCHIVE:
Book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day

"A grandly ambitious thing to attempt with something as exhaustively detailed as (Doctor Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
—Doctor Who Magazine
