Cover blurb:
One by one, their limbs became diseased — they were replaced by plastic and steel!

Little by little, their brains tired — computers worked just as well!

With metal limbs, they had the strength of ten men. They could live in the airless vacuum of space. They had no heart, no feelings, no emotions, and only one goal — power!

In the year 2070, a small blue planet caught their attention. They would land on its satellite and, from there, attack, ransack, destroy and finally abandon...

THE SATELLITE WAS THE MOON
THE HELPLESS PLANET — EARTH
THEIR NAMES? THE CYBERMEN!

Can the Doctor defeat an enemy whose threat is almost as great as that of the mighty Daleks?

Cover blurb:
Telos gezegeninde yasayan bir insan irki vücut organlarini plastik ve çelikle degistirerek ölümsüzlügü aradi.

Beyin yerine bilgisayarlari kullunarak zekâlarini mükemmellesttirdiler. Sevgi, nefret, öfke, hatta korku gibi duygusalliklar yasamlarindan silindi.

SİBERMEN'ler 2070 yilinda Dünya'yi ele geçirmeye karar verdiler. Bu küçük mavi gezegen onlarin üstünlüklerini tehlikeye sokabilirdi. Tüm madenlerini aldiktan ve gelismis teknolojisini yok ettikten sonra Dünya'yi bos ve cansiz bir gezegen olarak uzaya terkedeceklerdi.

Inceleme ve arastirmalarindan sonra Dünya'ya, Ay'i ele geçirdikten sonra kolayca egemen olacaklarini anladilar.

Cover blurb:
'There are some corners of the universe which have bred the most terrible things. Things which are against everything we have ever believed in. They must be fought. To the death.'

In 2070, the Earth's weather is controlled from a base on the moon. But when the Doctor and his friends arrive, all is not well. They discover unexplained drops of air pressure, minor problems with the weather control systems, and an outbreak of a mysterious plague.

With Jamie injured, and members of the crew going missing, the Doctor realises that the moonbase is under attack. Some malevolent force is infecting the crew and sabotaging the systems as a prelude to an invasion of Earth. And the Doctor thinks he knows who is behind it: the Cybermen.

THIS NOVEL IS BASED ON 'THE MOONBASE', A DOCTOR WHO STORY WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY BROADCAST FROM 11 FEBRUARY — 4 MARCH 1967.

Featuring the Second Doctor as played by Patrick Troughton, and his companions Polly, Ben and Jamie
