Cover blurb:
'Look, Brigadier! It's growing!' screamed Sarah.

The Brigadier stared in amazement as the Robot began to grow... and grow... swelling to the size of a giant!

Slowly the metal colossus, casting its enormous shadow upon the surrounding trees and buildings, began to stride towards the Brigadier. A giant metal hand reached down to grasp him...

Can Doctor Who defeat the evil forces controlling the Robot before they execute their plans to blackmail — or destroy — the world?

The first adventure of Doctor Who's 4th incredible incarnation!

The situation reaches a crisis point when top secret codes giving access to all the world's nuclear missiles also go missing.

Cover blurb:
'Brigadier! It's growing!' screamed Sarah.

Still weakened by his third regeneration, the Doctor, along with Sarah, the Brigadier and Harry Sullivan, faces the threats made by a group of dissident scientists, including the icy Miss Winters, to enslave the world — or perhaps to destroy the planet entirely.

Written by Terrance Dicks and broadcast in 1974, this story was first published under the title The Giant Robot. It was the first television story ever to feature the Fourth Doctor, as played by Tom Baker — regarded by many as the definitive Doctor. Robot also introduced Harry Sullivan to the TARDIS crew.
