Moderate spoilers ahead.
Part 1 of this four-part Cyberman series sets up the scene that will presumably be built upon over the course of the series. So far, this is nothing spectacular, but it gives the listener enough to want to come back for more. The characters are strong enough to generate interest. The story starts out at a measured pace and gets far enough to provide just enough intrigue to start us off.
Now, for a few details... This series is really a throwback. It bears a rather strong resemblance to the televised story, The Invasion, which featured Patrick Troughton as the Doctor. The voices of the Cybermen, a carefully crafted, devious cyber-plot, and even the pacing of the action are all, so far, very similar to what The Invasion offered. So, while the Cybermen appear to be more substantive here than the dum-dums we saw by the end of the original television series, unfortunately, they sound rather daft.
We'll see how this all plays out by the end.

A solid and extremly promising beginning to the cybermen's very own spin off series. Full of intrigue and suspense the regular characters are established against a backdrop of secret government programmes and political manoueverings.
|I have to say it "Excellent"|
This has it all, a great build up of the plot and people, the cybermen are held back. The sound and quality build up a great image in your mind, what a start.
