"We meet again Doctor"
Their back and it was about time. For 14 years the Cyberman had been out of regular who with only the dismal Revenge of the Cybermen to show the flag. For perhaps Who's best imagined monsters (as opposed to Daleks who are just scary)this was a travisty.
All that changed here though. a superb script a well used monster. Something for all the companions (though Nyssa spends far to much time in the Tardis)to do. Then of course there's the end of part four with the harrowing exit of the series worst ever companion (Yes even Peri and Mel are better) that tears you bettween relief and tears for it's audacity.
It has problems but they are not that major. The rest of the 80's Cyber stories may be poor by watch this and learn just why people once liked Eric Saward and JNT before the infighting and the sixth Doctor mess up.
