As their plan for earth starts to take shape, one character gets suspicious. Everyone and everything is turned against him as a result, and he becomes a hunted fugitive, fighting for his life whilst trying to discover what's really going on.
The play starts by showing us what the androids think of everything. They seem quite a reasonable bunch, and send an agent of their own to earth to find answers.
Thus the two team up, but find something horrifying on the isle of wight. It ain't no holiday camp...
Gripping stuff. The sheer paranoia that the main human character goes through, and the obstacles he faces are very well depicted, and you are really involved with his struggle. And the cliffhanger is absolutely terrifying. Even though it's obvious how it will be resolved. This will leave you desperate to find what happens next.
I can highly recommend the second part of Cyberman and I eagerly anticipate hearing part three.
In this second part of the story, Karen Brett is President of the Earth’s Government, and she struggles to continue the war that Earth still can’t win against the android forces. The Commander-in-Chief of Earth’s forces, Commander Liam Barnaby finds that his access to the President is limited by her new group of aides, among which the mysterious Paul Hunt seems to be prominent. When Barnaby goes looking for some answers of his own, there are those who would seek to stop him. And meanwhile, the androids are facing battles of their own; and refugees from Earth colony planets are on the move.
This is a fantastic second part to the story (of some 70 minutes duration), and the second in a wonderful set of four interlinked stories which make up the first Cyberman set. The Cybermen are starting to show some influence in the events of the war between the humans and the androids, but even now we still don’t know the full extent of what they intend, nor how they intend to go about fulfilling their schemes.
The cast are really well placed, and the writing by Nick Briggs is excellent. There are only about eight core cast members (Hannah Smith, Barnaby Edwards, Ian Brooker, Toby Longworth, Samantha Sanns, Mark McDonnell, Nicholas Briggs, Sarah Mowat), but they each play multiple roles (apart from Sarah Mowat who is dedicated to the role of President Karen Brett), and it feels like you’re listening to a story with a cast of hundreds. The scope is huge, the stakes monumental, and the mystery intriguing.
This is the second time I’ve listened through these stories, and this time I’m savouring the experience; knowing how the story unfolds does not detract from the pure entertainment and great storytelling. I’m looking forward to revisiting the third part of Cyberman 1, Conversion.
