The Anne Droid was a robot who hosted a deadly version of the game show The Weakest Link in 200,100. It was equipped with an energy beam in its mouth that was commonly believed to be a weapon that disintegrated the losers. In reality it was a transmat beam used to transfer losers to the Dalek Fleet. (TV: Bad Wolf)
When the Daleks invaded the Game Station, Jack Harkness reprogrammed the Anne Droid to fight the Daleks. Jack liked the fact that she could provide a nice defence on Floor 495, though the droid did not hold back the Dalek fleet for long. She transmatted three Daleks who had asked her to identify herself back to the mothership, but before she could transmat a fourth, the Dalek used its gunstick to destroy her head, taking advantage of the fact that she needed to say, "You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye", before firing. (TV: The Parting of the Ways)
Behind the scenes Edit
- The real Anne Robinson, the host of the game show in real life, provided the voice for the Anne Droid.
- The Anne Droid made a cameo appearance on the special The Weakest Link: Doctor Who Special, where actors from the show played for charity. She appeared centre stage introducing the show, before the real Anne Robinson came out, unplugged her and took over the MC position.
- The name is a pun on "android", but technically it was a gynoid as it had a female form.[source needed]
