I made it an episode and a half into The Robots of Death
before I had to turn it off. I've seen worse serials, but this is one of the most tedious ones I've tried to sit through. Even The Android Invasion
had enough that was at least a little interesting, so I managed to watch all of it (although it was hard at times). The Robots of Death
only had The Doctor and Leela as positives, they did a good job with what I saw. But the story was really boring, and the side characters were mostly irritaiting (especially the commander). Halfway through the second episode, I realised that watching grass grow would have more entertainment value, so I turned it off and just read the summary on wikipedia. Next up will be The Talons of Weng-Chiang
, which seems like it will be a big step up from the last serial, at least because I don't think it will be boring, regardless of the quality of the story.
