Tomb of the Cybermen DVD

 

Well, after a few years I have finally got round to watching
the complete serial of Tomb of the Cybermen.

Sadly, I've had the VHS copy for a number of years but never
got past episode two without switching it off....don't ask
me why but for a few years I never really liked this story.

I pre-ordered my copy from an internet company and eagerly awaited
it's arrival...strange really, why eagerly when I could just switch
on the VCR?? Anyway, the review:

Story

Well, the DVD doesn't actually make the story what it is but
it does add to the treasures.
Superb acting from all the cast I feel in this Patrick Troughton romp
from the sixties with some excellent sets and cybermen costume,
a friend of mine actually owns one of the original cybermen suits,
lucky devil!

A well paced four-parter with some great cliffhangers and I feel it's
good that the cybermen are not actually brought in in the opening
scenes of the first episode like in subsequent stories...
