This story was never produced.

Therefore, its known narrative elements are not a part of the Doctor Who universe. It may have been the basis for a similar story in another medium, however — and that story may indeed be a part of the DWU.

The Masters of Luxor (also known as The Robots) was an unmade Doctor Who serial by Anthony Coburn. It was inspired by the reports Coburn had read about computers that were just beginning to be used in the television industry. (REF: The Sixties)

It would have aired during season 1 after An Unearthly Child and instead of The Daleks, the story ultimately commissioned. In September 1992, Titan Books published the script in book form as part of its Doctor Who: The Scripts line. David Whitaker was still trying to get the script in working order for production in 1964.
