"You will be like us..."
On the planet Telos, the Doctor and his friends encounter a party of archaeologists intent on uncovering the mythical 'tomb of the Cybermen'. Only the Doctor seems aware of the folly of this venture, but suddenly it's too late — the ice tombs are open, and the Cybermen are coming back to life... Trapped underground with the Cyber Controller and his acolytes, including the vermin-like Cybermats, the Doctor and company learn that they are to be turned into a new generation of Cybermen. To make matters worse, there is treachery and double-crossing amongst the humans.
Can the Cyber menace be made dormant before it spreads out to the galaxy once again — and will the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria escape with their lives?
Patrick Troughton is the Doctor in this digitally remastered soundtrack of a classic BBC TV story. Frazer Hines, who played Jamie in these four BBC TV episodes from 1967, provides linking narration, and in a bonus interview, he also recalls the making of The Tomb of the Cybermen.
