4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Release for Doctor Who Fans, 22 April 2006
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Tomb Of The Cybermen [1967] [DVD] [1963] (DVD)
Many Doctor Who fans may be divided about this release, but I do think, despite its flaws, is rather good though. One reason is episodes of Victoria (Deborah Watling) are quite rare since many of the original tape recordings made between 1966 and 1969 were lost forever due to the BBC attempting to save time and money wiping the tapes and using them for new recordings. That is one plus point. Second plus point about this set is the numerous extras which will delight golden oldies like myself who watched these episodes when they were first transmitted. Picture and sound have been digitally remastered and is very good indeed. Now for the story itself. A tomb is discovered where the Cybermen have been frozen in time. Attempts to revive and control them goes terribly wrong though which leads to some exciting sequences when the Doctor and his friends try to reverse the process and refreeze them. What I like about this production is it doesnt go on too long like some stories, certainly not plodding or padded out. A good buy because like I explained earlier, many episodes with Patrick Troughton as the Doctor were lost, so grab it while you can.
