The Cybermen return - finally!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Moonbase [DVD] (DVD)
Troughton's first run-in with the silver giants, all looking a lot better after their redesign after the clunky- but loved by me! - original shown in Hartnell's final story "The Tenth Planet". Although the story is one that would often be seen in Troughton's era, the "base under siege" plot, this is one is pretty well done, with lots of tension and good performances from all the regulars and guest performers alike. Troughton is starting to find his feet as the Doctor from here on in, and there is less flipancy or overt humour from him, but the imp is still there along with the mercurial quality and solid scientific background that made him one of, if not, the best (IMHO) of the original Doctors.
With the two missing episodes nicely animated to the original soundtracks, this story is a welcome addition to any Who fan's collection - or for the casual viewer that likes the old black and white dramas with good actors over the age of 21!
