HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO KAMELION

WELL, WE HAD THE ROBOT DOG, SO WHAT ABOUT A MANDROID? KAMELION WAS A GREAT CONCEPT THAT FAILED DUE TO PRODUCTION VALUES. HE WAS A SHAPE CHANGING ROBOT THAT COULD ASSUME ANYONE’S IDENTITY AND WAS USED BY THE MASTER TO CHANGE HISTORY BY IMPERSONATING THE KING TO THWART THE SIGNING OF THE MAGNA CARTER. BUT KAMELION WAS A VICTIM, YET ANOTHER SLAVE TO THE MASTER’S SCHEMES AND WHEN THE DOCTOR BEAT HIM IN A BATTLE OF WILLS OVER CONTROL OF THE ROBOT, HE FOUND HIMSELF WITH A NEW RESIDENT ABOARD THE TARDIS.

HOWEVER, THE ROBOT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO WORK ECONOMICALLY AND KAMELION SWIFTLY DISAPPEARED UNTIL PLANET OF FIRE WHEN THE MASTER REASSERTED CONTROL OVER HIM, PLUNGING THE CREW INTO A LIFECHANGING ADVENTURE FOR TURLOUGH. CRIPPLED BY THE MASTER’S SCHEME, KAMELION HAD LITERALLY LOST HIS MIND SO BEGGED THE 5TH DOCTOR TO KILL HIM, WHICH HE DID WITH A HEAVY HEART. VOICED BY GERALD FLOOD, THIS SCENE IS UNFORGETTABLE. THOUGH A SMALL SCENE TO REMIND THE VIEWER KAMELION WAS STILL ABOARD WAS FILMED BUT CUT FROM THE AWAKENING.

THE STORY POSSIBILITIES WERE LIMITLESS WITH A ROBOT THAT COULD BE ANYONE BUT WAS WASTED. ALL THEY HAD O DO WAS HAVE HIM ASUME A HUMAN FORM TO OVERCOME THE MOVEMENT ISSUES BUT WHO AM I?

HIS TIME MAY HAVE BEEN BRIEF BUT HE IS REMEMBERED BUT FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS.
