Our celebration of the Doctor’s adventures continues, with a visit to the lost Tomb of the Cybermen in 1967.
Second, kicking off his second season in the role.
The TARDIS crew stumble upon archaeologists who have found the lost and frozen tombs of the Cybermen. Despite the danger, the Doctor can’t help his curiosity, and some in the expedition have sinister plans for the metal monsters…
The awakened Cybermen release their Controller:
The Doctor: Our lives are different to anybody else's. That's the exciting thing. Nobody in the universe can do what we're doing.
It features some of the most iconic scenes in black and white Doctor Who, as the Cybermen ‘hatch’ from their tombs. Patrick Troughton turns in an extraordinary performance as the Doctor, always seeming to be two steps ahead of everyone else. And along with strong performances, the design, costume and music combine to make this a genuinely spooky and claustrophobic adventure.
