When the Doctor Who franchise was revived by Russell T Davies in 2005, it was only a matter of time until the Cybermen were to make a much-anticipated on-screen return. This ultimately came during David Tennant's tenure as the Tenth Doctor, when an accidental crash-landing on a parallel Earth saw a re-imagining of the Cybermen's origin, when the brilliantly intelligent madman John Lumic attempted to cheat death by creating copyrighted chemicals that would preserve the brain inside a cybernetic metal suit of armour. These Cybermen from a parallel universe (later called 'Pete's World' after Rose Tyler's father) have been referred to as the Cybus Cybermen by the Whovian community, in order to distinguish them from their Mondasian counterparts from the Classic Series. Throughout the New Series, the Cybus Cybermen have sporadically returned, both in television and within prose novels/comic form, and they have now been clearly cemented within Doctor Who lore.
'The Cybermen Collection', released on 13th April 2009 and distributed by BBC Worldwide Limited/2 Entertain in the UK for Region 2 territories, contains four episodes that feature the Cybus Cybermen throughout Season 2 of the revived series; beginning with their birth on the parallel Earth of Pete's World to their attempted invasion of the Doctor's universe, following their breaking through the void space between worlds instigated by Torchwood, and the find of a Dalek void-ship that culminates in the breakout of a Cybermen-Dalek war at the heart of London.
Episodes included are:
* 'Rise of the Cybermen' & 'The Age of Steel' - originally broadcast from 13/05/2006 - 20/05/2006 as a two-part story arc that details the birth of the Cybus Cybermen when the Tardis accidentally crash-lands on a parallel Earth where Rose's father is still alive and zeppelins are a common sight across London. The Doctor joins with rebel-group, The Preachers, to bring down the cyber-threat from within and to thwart the forces of cyber-controller, John Lumic, in his plan to cyber-convert the world.
* 'Army of Ghosts' & 'Doomsday' - another two-part story arc, originally broadcast from 01/07/2006 - 08/07/2006 that wraps up Season 2, with the Doctor and Rose saying a tearful farewell when Torchwood unknowingly brings forth the Cybermen from Pete's World into the Doctor's universe, along with a Dalek void-ship, when trying to harness energy from a spatial rift from within Canary Wharf Tower.
With a total running time of 181 minutes, there is also an option to view with English subtitles for the hard-of-hearing and the ability to run through the menu using Audio Navigation. Regarding special features, on the first disk, an introduction is provided by Tenth Doctor actor David Tennant, explaining his work on the set and his view of the Cybermen in the New Series. On the second disk, there is a half-hour featurette called 'Best Cybermen Moments', narrated by Matthew Sweet (somewhat of a Cyberman historian), detailing the evolution of the Cybermen from their Mondasian roots in the Classic Series up to the parallel Cybus variety within the New Series, that are seen in episodes provided in this collection.
All in all, this set provides a glimpse into how the Cyberman concept was revived for a new generation of Doctor Who fans, and even though the episodes have been previously released within the Season Two box-set, it is handy to have these episodes within their own collected set; maybe more so for the passing fan or for the more hardened collector. An accompanying sister collection was released a few months later focusing on the revival of the Daleks in the New Series, titled Doctor Who - The Dalek Collection [DVD], which is also handy to have if you enjoyed this set. Furthermore, if you want to explore the evolution of the Cyberman concept from its inception to the present day, it may be worth picking up the 'Cyberman' entry, Doctor Who - The Monsters Collection: The Cybermen [DVD] ,within the 'Doctor Who - Monsters Collection' series of DVDs released in 2013 for the fiftieth anniversary. It includes the Second Doctor serial Doctor Who - The Tomb Of The Cybermen  [DVD]  and the first two episodes provided within this collection, 'Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel', in order to explore how much the Cyber designs have changed and evolved over the years.
