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.
