The BBC has finally released all of its surviving material for "The Tenth Planet" on video, including a reconstruction of that lost Holy Grail of missing Doctor Who episodes, the concluding fourth episode. The reconstruction is far better than what we got for "The Ice Warriors"..... To start with, the entire soundtrack has been used, and not just a select few scenes (which is why this package does NOT include a separate CD for episode four's audio). Also, where the telesnap photos and reused stills from previous episodes are not quite enough to make the action understandable, subtitles are scrolled across the bottom of the screen without obscuring any part of the still thanks to an inlay effect. This is much better than the narration present in "The Ice Warriors", and detracts nothing from the mood that "The Tenth Planet" works to convey. The regeneration clip is, of course, included as expected, but the real bonus is the collection of full motion "home-movie" style film clips spread throughout the episode. As these generally focus on William Hartnell's best lines, you really can say that you've seen his last performance as the Doctor after seeing this. Hartnell is by far the best element of this last episode, and makes this video a must for true fans of the series.
Many of the elements unique to this first design for the Cybermen have effective, horrific qualities not seen in any other cyber-story. With the soft-cloth design of the face, and dark, haunting eyes in behind, these cybermen appear to be masking leprosy or skin cancer or something, and they cannot speak without sending the chill of being cybernized into those normal humanoids that they intend to "save".

I was overjoyed to finally hear of the release of "The Tenth Planet". I had only seen one episode and the regeneration scene from the missing fouth episode, and longed for more! The reconstruction was admirably done. In addition to the extensive stills and the audio track, the missing fourth episode is peppered with mini clips that were found God knows where, which make it *very* exciting to see! Unlike other reviewers, I though the eerie sing-song voices of the cybermen and their human hands, made them all the more creepy, because they were still in the process of becoming "more cyberman" and less human. The Colin Baker story was good as well, especially for a Colin Baker story, although the ending is a bit weak. I enthuisatically recommend this to all Doctor Who fans!

Make no mistake, this is an essential buy for all WHO fans. The last Hartnell story in the best form we're ever gonna see it.. and the first proper Colin Baker adventure (we'll gloss over "The Twin Dilemma"). Not to mention two very different interpretations of the Cybermen. The box set shows how technology has developed in television terms over 20 years.. and how the series eventually became so wrapped up in it's own mythology that the casual viewer began to desert it in droves. The two stories make perfect sense as "Attack.." is a direct sequel to "Tenth". Great and frustrating viewing in equal measures, plus the bonus of Nicola Bryant's clothing (or not!). Buy it and realise that "Star Trek" has been ripping the programme off for years (Borg? Rubbish!).

Picture this- Early 80's, a young blond man stars at a starship bridge viewer and in a horrified voice whispers "Cybermen". Excited? Yes! Well I was until they spoke. The costumes were brilliant and voices were... well just camp! All of the 80's Doctors faced these foes and each did his best. But sit and watch The Tenth Planet (or even Tomb Of The Cybermen) and feel the shivers down your spine as they show an inhuman side and an electroinc voice that even Star Treks Borg can't match. The Tenth Planet reveals all the wrong sides of human nature and asks do we really care about what is going on around us? Attack Of The Cybermen fails to be its equal but has an excellent cast and a powerful performance from Colin Baker.

I wasn't alive when "The Tenth Planet" aired, now they're putting it on video along with "Attack of the Cybermen (Colin Baker)". "The Tenth Planet" Episodes 1,2&3 are still in tact, episode 4 is missing so it has audio commentary. This story is 2 important events in the Doctor Who timeline, 1, the first appearance of the Cybermen. 2, (The most important) the first EVER regeneration when William Harnell leaves doctor who and Patrick Troughton takes over. I can't wait to see this story.
