fight to the finish,
This review is from: Cyberman 1.4 - Telos (Doctor Who S.) (Audio CD)
Fourth in the series of four plays that tells of how the cybermen exploit a war between humans and androids for their own aims.
Our heroes reach their destination, looking to destroy the cybermen. But several surprises await them. And some of them are very nasty ones.
Forced into action, they have to fight appalling odds to survive. But survive they must, as their races are doomed otherwise.
This is an action packed finale to the series, and all the build up from the previous plays really delivers. It's gripping and exciting action drama, and the fate of some characters is really quite shocking, as the play allows you no time to stop and catch your breath.
The ending is a bit of a deus ex machina, but at the same time there's a certain amount of necessary dramatic licence, so I can just about forgive it. This series of plays comes to a conclusion, but it does manage at the same time to leave the door open for sequels without leaving any loose ends. Because there's one thing you can always be sure of with the cybermen.
THEY WILL SURVIVE
