The Doctor (Tom Baker), Sarah Jane and Harry return to the space station Nerva (from 'The Ark in Space') to recover the TARDIS. They discover the crew decimated by a strange plague, to which Sarah falls prey. The Doctor realises that the plague is part of a plot by the Cybermen to destroy Voga, the planet of gold - gold being the only thing which is lethal to them. At the same time the Vogans are planning to destroy the Cybermen with their Skystriker rocket.

4.0 out of 5 stars REVENGE OF THE CYBERMEN 7 Sep 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This action-packed story wraps up season twelve and the space station, Nerva, story arc. I remember watching this cybermen story as a child and being utterly enthralled. Now, so many years down the line, I am still in love with it. Tom Baker,my favourite Doctor,Sarah-Jane Smith and Harry Sullivan, my two favourite companions, arrive on the Beacon by way of the Time-Ring. Hoping to rendezvous with the TARDIS, the trio find Nerva in the past and later discover Cybermats poisoning the crew. Voga, the planet of gold, is the target of annihilation by the Cybermen.
Overall, this is the weakest of the five stories making up this season. But, apart from some risible effects and the odd duff performance,(no Oscar winners here), Revenge Of The Cybermen has some great sets and location work. A welcome return of Doctor Who's 2nd best monster! By the way, my three children love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 22 Aug 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Even though BBC online says Revenge of The Cybermen has a weak plot, and is not all that great, I disagree with them. Revenge of The Cybermen is one of my favorite episodes of Tom Baker, and the Cybermen are a great improvement from there previous appearances. I admit though I think some things in the show could have been better, Revenge of The Cybermen is a great movie, and is not as bad as some viewers describe it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated and enjoyable. 29 April 2007
Format:VHS Tape
I will confess that this story is not as good as I thought it would be but as time passes it does grow on me.

The cybermen themselves are back on track after their underused performance in 'The Invasion' and are seen to be a lot more cunning and manipulative. E.g. using human greed to aquire the services of a human agent. However I am disapointed that they don't have much involvement in the story until episode 3 but their performance makes up for that.

Tom Baker is excellent as the Doctor, as usual. His banter with the Cyberleader during episode three is a mixture of seriousness and silliness and thats what makes it so good.

Companions Harry and Sarah are seen to have their own mini adventure in this story trying to avoid capture by the Vogans which in by view is a very good subplot.

On first viewing the vogans arn't very impressive but like the story they do grow on you and the idea of the vogan civil war is another excellent subplot.

Weak points of this story include: quite a slow plot, missing cybermen from most of parts one and two and finally the american accent the Cyberleader appears to have picked up.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than daleks? 6 Feb 2010
Format:VHS Tape
i first brought this in 2006 and i was a fan of the daleks. but when i saw this i thought what a good story to the daleks i think the scene is a brilliant idea and the cybermen and cybermats but the downfall of the cybermen is that the voices are naff and the guns in the head but go for it its good for the family

3.0 out of 5 stars See the Cybermen in their 1970s glory 26 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This story was one of the very first to be issued by the BBC on video (I have the original release!). The effects are a little basic and the ships look like those of Blakes 7. That said, the music is well composed and the underground caves (Chiselhurst?) are put to good use.
The acting looks incredibly dated as the actors appear to used to performing Shakespeare at the National - there is some serious overacting!
Although the cybermen appear to have strange firecracker guns on their heads, there is some good cybermat action that make a reappearance from the 3rd doctor. Tom Baker does look a little bored but certainly comes into his own when he delivers lines that he appears to have written himself.
Not the best episode but quite fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Cybermen On DVD" 28 May 2010
Format:VHS Tape
For many months now I have wanted to see Revenge Of The Cybermen become available on DVD. It appears that a majority of the good episodes are still unavailable on DVD anyway. Oh well all I can do is be patient & await for them to be released onto DVD, by the way I'd love to also see Terror Of The Zygons, Planet Of The Spiders etc released onto DVD as well. Stupidly enough in the future I wonder whether some DVD company will be crazy enough to release a huge 26 season DVD Box Set of the complete old series, It'd probably cost a big fortune hehehehe...
