Silver Nemesis begins in 1988 on 23rd November. Lady Peinforte and her loyal servant Richard have travelled from the year 1638 for this moment. Herr de Flores' dreams of establishing the Fourth Reich rest on this point in time. The Cybermen's planned invasion of Earth is scheduled for the same time.

The link between the three? The statue Nemesis, fashioned from validium - the living metal first made by Rassilon on Gallifrey and capable of bestowing the power of life and death on any individual. Can the Doctor and Ace prevent its awesome power from falling into any of their evil hands?

In Revenge of the Cybermen, the Doctor, Sarah and Harry arrives on the Nerva Beacon, hoping to find the TARDIS waiting for them, instead the intrepid trio find a space station in the grip of a deadly plague that has wiped out most of its crew. But the Doctor soon comes to suspect that the 'plague' is no natural illness – and that some of his oldest and most fearsome foes are behind it...

The beacon has been set up to warn space traffic of a new satellite orbiting Jupiter, but one craft is taking no notice of the order to stay clear – a Cybership. The satellite is Voga, Planet of Gold, home to the seemingly harmless Vogans – but why are the Cybermen so determined to destroy it?

Without the TARDIS, the Doctor is unable to return Sarah and Harry to the 20th Century. But then Sarah falls victim to the mystery virus, and unless the Doctor can find a cure – quickly – she will never make it home at all...

Way back in 1975, I didn't know what cybermen were or heard of them before until Weetabix did a promo of Dr Who stand up figures in their cereal packs and one of Dr Who's enemy featured was a Cyberman and lo and behold that same Saturday evening Revenge of the Cybermen story was broadcasted. Brilliant! I really enjoyed this story. So nostalgically the release on DVD has been brilliant. I have since seen most of the Classic series Cybermen Stories with EarthShock and Revenge being my all time favorites, though I do not rate the 'New' series Cybermen as I think they are useless and boring.

The highlight of the DVD extras for Revenge of the Cybermen is 'Cheques, lies and videotape'. This is a well produced and fascinating documentary about what die-hard fans would pay in terms of money and swap-exchange of Dr Who memorabilia to get hold of rare Dr Who stories on Video before they became commercial and available in shops. Often the quality were so poor like the 10th generation copy of Revenge of the Cybermen featured in this DVD extra.

The featured Easter Egg is the original 1983 BBC Video intro before the Video programme starts.

The Making of Revenge is great. The newsreport at Wookey Hole featuring a great Tom Baker interview before his pre-fame Dr Who role. This DVD extra was already featured on The Ark In Space DVD, however it is relevant on this Revenge DVD.

The Revenge of the Cybermen Photo gallery seems to be lack lustre compared to previous DVD releases. Not many Cybermen photos but too many boring Vogans pictures.. Surely a right balance of interesting photos and behind the scenes would have made this more interesting like they did with Frontier In Space/Planet of the Daleks photo galleries.

Format: DVD
The advent of these two classic Cybermen stories from `Doctor Who' was really exciting for me when they were announced for release on DVD. The Cybermen are my favourite monsters, so I was keen to see them in these particular adventures. They're not the best Cybermen stories I've seen. `Revenge' was rather hard-going and `Silver Nemesis' was a little improvement if not great. But if you're looking for entertainment and you're a fan of Cybermen and `Doctor Who' in general, then this collection is worthwhile. It's not the greatest collection, but it's certainly worth the entertainment.

`REVENGE OF THE CYBERMEN'
`Revenge of the Cybermen' is a four-part story starring Tom Baker as the Doctor with his companions Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith and Ian Marter as Harry Sullivan.

For me, this is the weakest Cybermen story I've come across after watching so many others. Now I know this has a place in the hearts of fans and some will either like it or dislike it for whatever reasons. It's not the worst story I've watched, but it's not the greatest. For me, it was rather hard-going since the story seemed lacking in action and was mundane in terms of its plot development and characters. It wasn't inspiring and it didn't provide an impact on me when I first watched it. To be honest, I couldn't remember what the story was about when coming back to watch it a second time.

The story follows on from 'Genesis of the Daleks' when the Doctor, Sarah Jane and Harry are travelling in space using the Time Ring given to them by the Time Lords until they arrive on the space station - the Nerva beacon.

Revenge

Interesting cast this one; most of 'em have done Dr Who before, those that haven't soon would do, except for the remaining one, who featured in the first episode of Blake's 7.

I seem to recall reading that Gerry Davis may not have been too happy with the finished script - increased location filming necessitating more and more re-writes - but I like this, however it may re-use a few ideas from Moonbase and Wheel in Space.

The atmosphere is solidly grim from the outset; political murder on Voga, and a corridor full of corpses on the beacon - don't kid me about sterile atmosphere, the smell in there would have been horrendous - the skeleton Nerva crew doing their duty however much the horrid Professor Kellman stands by and sneers at them - how admirably British; I'd have shot him and blamed one of the corpses in the corridor.

It says something for the plotting of this that the eponymous villains don't really get involved until the end of Episode 2, and that it still works perfectly happily - rather well, in fact, to have the first two episodes telling the massive backstory - the Cyberwar and Voga's involvement - and with sufficient clarity that the first time I saw it, I thought they were talking about the previous Cyberman story (alas there are no Glitter Guns in The Invasion). It is also something of an aceivement that the story is sufficiently well-told that the numerous holes in the plot are not immediately visible.

The Vogans are extremely well-realised; not just well-designed and well acted, but finely drawn; Vorus may be ruthless but his patriotism is beyond doubt; Tyrum may be well-disposed to Sarah and Harry, but he's a staunch separatist and obviously not to be trusted.
