Normally, an 8 part Doctor Who suffers from padding, but this story is actually well paced, with an excellent villain (the creepy Vaughn) and featuring one of the most iconic moments in Who's history: the Cybermen emerging from London's sewer network, as well as the development of the UNIT team, which would feature prominently in the next few series of mostly earth-based seasons.

Most significantly, the previously missing episodes 1 and 4 are animated with original soundtrack, to make it as complete as could be. 8.5/10

Eagerly Awaited 2nd Doctor (Patrick Troughton) Classic Story Featuring Stunning Animation.

BBC DVD is thrilled to announce that the previously incomplete 1968 Doctor Who Cyberman story – The Invasion is now available on DVD in its entirety. The two missing episodes from this classic Patrick Troughton story have been recreated using striking black and white animation, to stunning effect.

This unique project uses animation based on the original actors and set designs to fill in the gaps as seamlessly as possible. The end result brings the second Doctor back to life in a beautiful broadcast quality animation with restored audio recording of the original transmission.

This eight-part story sees the Doctor, Jamie (Frazer Hines) and Zoe (Wendy Padbury) arrive in London in the 1970s, where an eminent computer scientist has been kidnapped. With the help of UNIT, the Doctor discovers he is being held by Tobias Vaughn, the managing director of the world’s leading electronics company in league with the Cybermen in a plan to invade Earth. Once successful, Vaughn intends on seizing power for himself…
