Great start - then the Cybermen appear.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who Earthshock  [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This is another one of those stories that starts off so promisingly only to rapidly collapse into nonsense and tedium after the first episode. The faceless, trooper melting androids are great as they make their murderous way about the caves. After that the story becomes non-existent as Cybermen blow things up and are blown up and then blow a few more things up before they are blown up. Oh yeah, Beryl Reid sneers too. In fact everyone sneers, even the Doctor. Well, it is Saward. What did you expect? Plot? Characters? Storytelling? Hah!
