The TARDIS is lured to Earth in 1985 by a distress call sent by Lytton, who has made contact with a group of Cybermen based in London's sewers. The Doctor and Peri are then captured and forced to take Lytton and the Cybermen in the TARDIS to the Cybermen's home planet Telos. The Cybermen have stolen a time vessel from another race and plan to change history by crashing Halley's Comet into Earth and obliterating it before it can bring about the demise of their original home world, Mondas, in 1986.

This oft-criticised mid 80s offering features Colin Baker as The Sixth Doctor and Nicola Bryant as his Lycra-clad whingeing American botanist travelling companion - with heart-attack inducing shocking pink leotard/shorts combo; only in the eighties! - With guest stars of the calibre of Brian Glover and Maurice Colbourn, plus the eponymous alien threat, this should be classic Doctor Who; but although it's still watchable it's uneven tone and excessive violence mean it doesn't quite live up to its potential. With the late-lamented Michael Kilgariff as an inappropriately portly Cyberleader, and the poorly realised 'Cryons' (including future Blue Peter presenter Sarah Greene among their number), it is easy to see why it gets some flak, however, despite some forgettable moments, (The Doctor rising from the ground wearing the helmet of a fake policeman he'd just battered is just one inexplicable example), this is a pleasingly dark and claustrophobic story with some great moments too - the TARDIS' chameleon circuit (briefly) working provides some good humour.
Perhaps this particular serial would have been better as a three parter instead of the two 45 minute episode format that the production team inexplicably adopted towards the end of The Fifth Doctor's tenure, but as a companion piece to the less impressive 'Resurrection of the Daleks' - both featuring scheming intergalactic mercenary 'Lytton' - and despite its flaws, this is rather satisfying piece of 80s drama.

Positive.
1)A unpredictable Sixth Doctor played by Colin Baker makes this Sixth incarnation of the Timelord edgy & mysterious in his actions in his second Doctor Who adventure.
2)The Cybermen are back.
3)A competent if flawed script by Paula Moore.

Negative.
1)The Cybermen seem to becoming very easy to defeat with attacking them with gold or shooting there chest plate instead of the being frightening as they were in Second Doctor story Tomb Of The Cybermen.
2)The Cyber Controller is more like Mr Blobby & seems far to overweight to be menacing & is played once again by Michael Kilgarriff.
3)Not sure about Faith Brown & her Bill & Ben's & Sarah Greene playing the roles of Flast & Varne as the Cyrons seem a flimsy addtion to the plot.

Trivia.
1)Russell is played by Davros actor Terry Molloy ( He gets around a bit in Doctor Who & Big Finish audios).
2)The credit of Paula Moore( Woodsey) is one of controversy on the right's issues of characters as Eric Saward created Lytton in Resurrection Of The Daleks, Kit Pedler & Gerry Davis creator's of the Cybermen & Doctor Who copyrighted by the BBC.
3)Ian Levine is also alleged to have contributed to some of the elements in this script but Script Editor Eric Saward denys his involvement.

Review.
This was Colin Bakers first story as the Sixth Doctor now in his first full series which brought back an old enemy for the new Doctor to face off against The Cybermen.

Attack of the Cybermen has to be my favorite of the original series Cyber stories.

New, slightly "unstable" Doctor played beautifully by Colin Baker and supported by a great cast of strong actors.

The strength of the Cybermen really comes together well in this as does the constant referrals to people, adventures and times gone by.

The repair of the Camelion circuit and the arrival in Foremans scrap yard are a highlight as is the takeover of the Tardis by the Cybermen.

The only letdowns are the costuming of the Cryons and a somewhat "well fed" Cyber Controller, however don't let this deter you as this is a classic well worth your time and effort!

Plenty of extras on this dvd. overall an EXCELLENT buy!Doctor Who - Attack of the Cybermen [DVD] [1985]

`Attack of the Cybermen' is a 2 by 45 minute episode story featuring Colin Baker as the Doctor with his companion Nicola Bryant as Peri, and features the return of the Doctor's old foes - the Cybermen.

This is Colin Baker's second story in his tenure as the Doctor, following his rocky start in 'The Twin Dilemma'. It was the first of a new series of stories for 1985 and introduced the 45-minute episode format that is currently running today. The show was also restored back to its Saturday tea-time slot where before it had been weekdays during Peter Davison's run. To start off this story, the production team decided to have Colin's Doctor face off the Cybermen which is a great start to a new season since it compensated for the audience to get use to this newly brash and rather aggressive Doctor that was rather unlikeable to start with.

I find this to an okayish story for my liking. It promises a lot, but doesn't deliver as I expected it to and is why it's not one of my standout favourites. There's a lot of good points about it, notably Colin, Nicola and certain members of the cast. But in terms of the story, it was rather obsessed with too many continuity elements and plot threads that made it all confusing and convoluted. Nice touches, but rather made the story hard-going to watch and understand. Also the violence issues are debated in this since this story went for a more adult atmosphere, but more on that later.

The story of `Attack of the Cybermen' is like this. The Doctor and Peri are in the TARDIS and discover a strange alien signal emanating from Earth.
