Blake's 7 Liberator - WiP

From wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberator_(Blake's_7) 
"The Liberator was an abandoned spacecraft found drifting near Cygnus Alpha, it was equipped with powerful weapons, force field protection, and a system of "battle computers". The ship was originally built by a race of beings known as "The System". The System referred to the ship as DSV2 ("Deep Space Vehicle 2"), a designation that suggests it was specifically designed for long-range forays outside the territory controlled by The System, and confirming more than one such ship had ever been made. It had at least one sister ship, which was destroyed by Orac in the episode "Redemption". It was never clarified if the sister ship that Roj Blake encountered was DSV1.The ship was controlled by an advanced AI computer calling itself Zen, although it is not clear whether this was the computer's official name under The System, or whether Zen later chose this name for itself. During the episode "Redemption" the System's controllers, (referred to as "Altas"), had boarded the ship and also referred to the computer as Zen.DSV2 first appeared in the series after it was involved in a space battle, (of which no further details were ever given), and apparently abandoned by its crew as a result of severe battle damage. It was demonstrated later in the series that temporary abandonment of the ship may be necessary until the auto-repair systems can restore life support after serious damage. DSV2 was encountered by the Federation prison ship London. The captain of the London decided to try to salvage the ship, but the first few crew members sent in were killed or disabled by DSV2's automated defence systems. At the suggestion of his second-in-command, the London's captain then ordered the prisoners Roj Blake, Kerr Avon, and Jenna Stannis to enter the ship. These three succeeded in taking control of the ship and making good their escape.
The name Liberator was then applied to the ship by Zen based on a telepathic suggestion by Jenna. Blake proceeded to use Liberator's superior technical abilities in his bid to attack and defeat the Federation until he disappeared during the battle of Star One. Avon then took over command of theLiberator and continued to harass the Federation until Liberator was destroyed after passing through a cloud of corrosive micro-organisms in the third season final episode "Terminal"."

'Robot' was the first story for Tom Baker as the Doctor, written by Terrance Dicks and directed by Christopher Barry, broadcast 28th December 1974 to 18th January 1975. The blurb from the back of the DVD:

"Mortally weakened by the Spider Queen on Metebelis 3, the Doctor is forced to regenerate. His recuperation is cut short as UNIT investigate a spate of robberies involving components for a top-secret disintegrator gun. The culprit is quickly identified as a highly sophisticated robot built by Professor Kettlewell, which is being ordered to act against its Prime Directive.Just how is the robot being used to carry out the sinister agenda of the Scientific Reform Society ? And can the Doctor rescue Sarah from the robot's clutches and avert a nuclear war?"

Exciting stuff then!

This is a model of the 'highly sophisticated robot', made with Blender

A model of Morbius. The base mesh made in Blender then sculpted, textured and rendered in ZBrush. I wanted to use the particle system in blender to create the body hair but struggled to get really what I wanted so I just  sculpted some in zbrush. Just now need to think about posing it.
