I appreciate my ‘species’ posts are getting more tenuous by the minute, but as a unique foe I’m going to post about these robots. I enjoyed the episode a lot more than I thought I would, with the clash of two larger than life characters making for a lot of on screen fun and giving Capaldi’s Doctor some much needed likeability.
The robotic knights were part of a spaceship that crashed in Mediaeval England on route to ‘the promised land’. Using camouflage technology the ship disguised itself ad a castle and its drones as knights, slowly collecting gold to repair it’s systems. The ship and its drones were destroyed in an attempt to take off before the ship was fully repaired.
