Publisher's Summary

The Cybermen make their first ever appearance whilst William Hartnell's Doctor nears the end of his first incarnation, in this classic soundtrack adventure with linking narration by Anneke Wills. The year is 1986, and at the South Pole the crew of the Snowcap Base have detected a new planet on their radar. The arrival of the Doctor, Ben, and Polly at the Base coincides with another landing, that of a spaceship whose humanoid passengers have used cybernetics to replace their limbs and vital organs. Battling alongside the humans to save their planet, the Doctor appears to weaken and age before the eyes of his companions. An ultimate collapse appears to signal his death, but then... In an exclusive bonus interview, Anneke Wills, who also narrates the story's soundtrack, recalls her memories of making The Tenth Planet.

Future nostalgia presently...

Despite the 'fillers' by Anneke Wills (excuse the spelling), this is a splendid piece of Auntie Beeb's sci-fi nostalgia. I like that this is now part of a series of repackaged works, they benefit from this and the extra post production interviews immensely. I would recomend this not only to sci-fi enthusiasts, but to anyone who appreciates a darn good radio play.
