Tomb of the Cybermen/Rise of the Cybermen+Age of Steel,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Monsters Collection: The Cybermen [DVD] (DVD)
I have no idea where `KK' gets his/her information. According to the BBC these `Monster Collections' are specially themed sets to represent the most popular opponents of the Doctor. Each DVD will feature a story from the original run of Doctor Who (usually the first appearance of the monster) and from its return since 2005 (ie. Old Who and New Who as it is sometimes termed).
They are to be presented in sleeved cases in much the same design as `The Cybermen Collection' and `The Dalek Collection' that were released in 2009. This looks as if this will give them a collectible appearance.
This DVD includes:
TOMB OF THE CYBERMEN (5/5) - from the era of the Second Doctor, this quite probably one of the best Cybermen stories. It is not their first appearance (that being `The Tenth Planet') like the other collections in this series but it represents the silver giants very well, having some of the most iconic Cybermen images.
RISE OF THE CYBERMEN/THE AGE OF STEEL (2/5) - a rather mediocre re-imagining of the origins of the Cybermen from the Tenth Doctor's tenure. Even though it is fairly representative of the Tenth Doctor's era it is far from the best Cybermen story.
As yet there is no mention of special features. It would seem a shame if there weren't any.
As previously released stories they are clearly intended to be collector's items especially for the fiftieth anniversary.
