"I never carry weapons. If people see you mean them no harm, they never hurt you...nine times out of ten."
-- The Fourth Doctor to Leela, Doctor Who: "The Robots of Death"
With my partner in time Jesse Jackson off at the Dallas Fan Expo getting Peter Capaldi's autograph (shakes jealous fist), special guest companion Karen Lindsay is my co-host with the most in a new episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! In this episode, we review the 1977 Fourth Doctor classic, "The Robots of Death" starring Tom Baker and Louise Jameson!
This time, Karen and I discuss, the Fourth Doctor Funko, when Star Wars was Star Wars and not Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, "Robots of Death" guest stars appearing in big-screen movies and other Doctor Who episodes, Blake's 7, Frank Herbert's Dune, waiting for the Jawas and the Tusken Raiders to show up, two-eyed Leela vs. single-eyed Leela from Futurama, Leela' first trip in the TARDIS, the Doctor trying to educate Leela, Leela as the audience's gateway character, "Mr. Roboto" by Styx, Isaac Asmiov's Laws of Robotics, why the robots in The Matrix can't use humans for batteries, the Fourth Doctor having a conversation with a dead guy in a silo, Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, obscure movie Murder by Death, the Cybermen being The Borg before The Borg, my Reversing the Reverse the Polarity segment, my Doctor autographs, shamelessly pimping The Fandom Zone Podcast, and more!
