What a brilliant story. The animation is so good i could have watched every episode like that. When episode 2 came on it was not as vivid as the animation as it was original.

Please bbc try and animate all missing doctor who. Telesnaps are fine, but nothing beats animation. Just look at the reconstructed power of the daleks for an example.

I wish we had all of the doctor's adventures. It's so sad that we don't but at least here we get a full adventure , with animation to fill in the missing eps etc. The story is a cool one as the doctor finds himself facing the new and improved cybermen. They have evolved and are now moving into space to wreak havoc. This has extras and is well worth watching. Of course some fans of the newer cgi type series will not like these old shows. But if you are real fan you should want this one.

I loved this story. I first saw it on VHS in the special Cybermen cassette, and it was great then. This time around on DVD you get animated fillers for the missing episodes, and these work rather well (unlike some times when they jar). All of the characters have great roles to play, and even if Jamie is ill and out of action for a while, its not a problem, things like this should happen to companions from time to time. The sets are great and the cybermen are fantastic and eery. Troughton's Doctor is at his best and the whole package really works well. One of my favourite cybermen stories, and one of my favourite Second Doctor stories.

I've read the book adaptation of this adventure many times, and to be able to see the story, largely as broadcast, was a treat. The surviving original footage is really clear. The animated episodes (made to replace lost footage) are very well put together. The "making of" documentary seemed just enough to give a sense of what it was like filming the show, in the 1960s, without overwhelming with detail.

The second Cybermen story, first in the Patrick Troughton era and its a classic base under seige story, one of the hallmarks of Doctor Who Seasons 4 and 5.

Shame 2 episodes are still missing but they've been well animated and synched up to the existing soundtracks.

Very good and highly recommended.

Brought back a few memories from my kiddie years. Love this story and the animation plugging was done very well. I can remember watching this when it first aired on TV. I could also remember the distinct tune when the cybermen were walking across the moon surface to attack the Moonbase. Great stuff! :D

This is the business. Patrick Troughton was getting into his stride here. Black & white makes it more atmospheric and the animation is great.

The story is the "base under siege" which was repeated multiple times in the next couple of years, but that isn't a complaint, its ideal Doctor Who!

brilliant Doctor Who DVD partly animated because the BBC Trashed some episodes in the 60's or 70's. it is great how they've done this and it's great to see the entire story. the Animation does not spoil the story at all. Great for any true Doctor Who fan young or old.

Great adventure and characters. In my opinion this was the last DVD of Doctor Who perfectly produced. Two great lost episodes recreated in a very well-drawn animation, good and interesting bonus features, I give 5 stars, very good.

Patrick Troughton was very much the 'monster' Doctor and here he battles Cybermen, again assisted by Ben, Polly, and young Jaime McCrimmon, rescued from 18th century Scotland. This serial is 50% original TV episodes and 50% reconstructed animation replacing two missing episodes. A fine entry in the Doctor Who genre of 'base under attack' stories.
