Great story - more animatation of missing doctor who - please!, 9 Nov. 2006
I was only 4 when this doctor who story was first shown, so at age 43, I am too young to remember the first showing. This is a cyberman story with a diabolical plan to invade earth aided by the head of a global electronics company Tobias Vaughan who himself has a plan to use, deceive and control the cyberman to take control of the earth himself after the invasion. The doctor added by his companions and UNIT are determined to stop them.
This `second doctor' story unfortunately is incomplete in the BBC archive. To get round this the two episodes that are missing (episode one and four) have been animated using the original soundtrack which survives.
The brilliant quality of the reconditioned original soundtrack and the moody black and white animation makes me want more missing doctor who done in this fashion, practically as so many of the scripts of this period are great for family viewing.
The existing complete episodes have been reconditioned to improve the quality of both sound and picture and are a remarkable improvement on 1990's VHS release of this story.
