5.0 out of 5 stars The Curse of the Cybermen's Tomb, 7 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Doctor Who And The Tomb Of The Cybermen (Dr Who) (Audio CD)
Whatever happened to the Cybermen? Once they were the scourge of the Galaxy, but then they seemed to just disappear. In order to answer this question, a group of archeologists land on the planet Telos, reputed to be the last resting place of the silver giants. However, there are some in their party who have more sinister motives. And are the Cybermen really dead? Or are they merely sleeping and awaiting the signal to rise again?

Landing on the planet at the same time, The Doctor, Jamie and Victoria find themselves in mortal danger as the Cybermen begin to awake .....

Gerry Davis' novelisation of the 1967 TV script was published by Target books in 1978. It's a faithful adaptation of the original story, sticking closely to the original source material.

Michael Kilgarriff, who played the Cyber Controller in the original TV production of Tomb, is the reader. Amongst his other talents, Kilgarriff is a vastly experienced voice actor, which makes this reading very enjoyable.

When he played the Cyber Controller in 1967, he didn't do the voice - Peter Hawkins did. It's therefore slightly ironic that some 45 years later he's still not able to, as this time Nicholas Briggs provides the Cyber voices.

After the disappointment of Earthshock which had the wrong type of Cyber voices, it's good to find that on this audiobook Nicholas Briggs produces a good approximation of the authentic Tomb Cyberman. This really does help to create the atmosphere, as although the Cybermen don't say an awful lot, what they do say sounds so much better with the weird buzzing monotone delivery as heard on the TV broadcast - "You belong to uzzzzzz".

Tomb of the Cybermen is a great reading of a classic Doctor Who tale.
