"An exciting and moving story."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

At the time, it had been a while since the Cybermen had made an appearance on Doctor Who. It's not the greatest story and plot line, and there were some definite character problems (mis-castings), but somehow, I still felt at the end of it that it had been one of the best overall serials from the Peter Davison era.

The “classic villian” Cybermen are certainly more believable than in previous series, the acting is also not too bad (in comparison), and the ending is long remebered among fans of the show.

If you're looking for a good episode from the old series, this is certainly worth a watch.

The TARDIS arrives on Earth in the 26th Century in a cave system containing numerous dinosaur fossils. The Doctor’s party comes under suspicion from a military force, led by Lieutenant Scott, who are investigating the disappearance of a group of palaeontologists and geologists. They are all then attacked by androids – the true culprits – under the control of the Cybermen. The Doctor manages to deactivate a bomb intended by the Cybermen to destroy an imminent peace conference. He then follows the bomb’s activating signal to an approaching space freighter, commanded by Captain Briggs, on board which it transpires that an army of Cybermen are concealed.
