Rate "Revenge Of The Cybermen"

Post by Patrick on Tue Feb 18, 2014 10:59 am

The time-ring given to the Doctor by the Time Lords returns himself, Sarah Jane and Harry Sullivan (IS AN IDIOT!) to Nerva Beacon, but at a time 1,000 years before they left. So they have a wait in store while the TARDIS drifts backwards in time to collect them. What they find on the station (which is still in use at this time as a commercial interstellar navigational traffic control) is a crew being wiped out by a mysterious plague. The plague is the result of enemy action by the Cybermen, who are playing out a gambit to destroy what could easily be the deciding factor in humanity's war against them: Voga, the planet of gold.

So what did you think of the story which ended Season 12? 14 karat, or that fake stuff that turns your skin green? Let's hear your thoughts on the first appearance of the Cybermen in six years.

I'm a big fan of Revenge. Far superior to Genesis. Have had the pleasure of meeting, and interviewing, the wonderful Christopher Robbie on several occasions - splendid fellow. So, what's not to love?

The Cybermats in this story weren't entirely convincing. At least I didn't find them so. But that's a minor quibble. Overall, it was a pretty solid plot, and the caves where they filmed were appropriately spooky. (I understand those caves are reputed to be haunted.) It isn't a perfect story, but I think it ended Sir Thomas of Baker's first season in the title part very well. 4/5.

Indeed, by the Witch of Wookey Hole.

Over the years, I've heard tales of strange and spooky events that beset the crew during the making of Revenge. All this merely adds to the mystique behind this story.

Yeah, didn't Lis Sladen nearly drown in a boating accident in the underwater lake?

Let's hope you enjoyed this one, Aspa, because you're in for a seven year wait until the next Cyber-tale.
