Publisher's Summary

Patrick Troughton plays the second Doctor in this four-episode adventure from 1967, set on Earth's moon and featuring a return appearance by the emotionless Cybermen. The year is 2070, and Earth's weather is controlled by a device called the Gravitron, based on the Moon and manned by an international team of experts. The TARDIS arrives to find the base in the grip of a plague epidemic which is drastically reducing the personnel. Before long an even greater menace is proved to be responsible: an invasion force from the planet Mondas, home of the Cybermen.... The soundtrack presented here includes linking narration by Frazer Hines, who played Jamie in the story itself. It includes the only surviving versions of episodes 1 and 3, whose film recordings no longer exist in the BBC Television Archives. Playing alongside Patrick Troughton and Frazer Hines are Michael Craze as Ben, Anneke Wills as Polly, and Patrick Barr as Hobson.

What the Doctor ordered

This is a fantastic balance of original audio track tied in with narration. It works surprisingly well. The original audio is a little...deteriorated, but otherwise I felt like 10 again, which is when I first saw the episode.

The Cybermen's 2nd Adventure

This cheeky little romp sees the Cybermen make their second ever appearance menacing astronauts on a moonbase. There is so much to love here, with great performances and the combination of your imagination with Frazer Hines' narration probably creates a far more engrossing image than the original TV show!
