Over the past few blog entries I've tended to concentrate more on the costumes worn by the Eleven Doctors, but for the next few days I plan to showcase some of the outlandish aliens, monsters and fantastical creatures that delighted me so much growing up watching Doctor Who in Britain.
It was notably the first episode to feature the Fourth Doctor after his regeneration in Planet of the Spiders. The plot saw K-1 reprogrammed by rogue scientists from its prime directive to help humanity and also saw this robot made of 'living metal' become obsessed with Sarah Jane Smith after she had been the first to ever show it kindness.
If you like this classic robot, be sure to also check out these cool cyborg Daleks from Doctor Who across the ages.
from The Keeper of Traken (1981)
In Trakenite culture corrupted creatures were rendered immobile and stone-like by the planet's peaceful atmosphere, upon his arrival the Doctor discovered this calcified statue was very much alive and was in fact the evil Time Lord, 'The Master's', TARDIS in disguise using its functioning chameleon circuitry.
If you're fan of the Fourth Doctor's adventures, be sure to take a closer look at Tom Baker's iconic Doctor Who costume on display.
