Theatrical Notices

The Fiction Stroker reviews the Robots of Death/Storm Mine stage plays: "With these two plays, you have an ambitious and successful reinterpretation of one of the all-time classic Doctor Who adventures. Robots of Death has been ambitiously reimagined for new and existing audiences. With a witty script and a pacy plot and much of the baggage of the original production removed, Robots of Death is an ambitious and successful re-telling of a classic. As a companion piece and sequel, Storm Mine just edges out Robots for me."
