The year is 2070 and the Earths weather is now being controlled on the moon, The Tardis arrives at the moonbase but the Doctor, Polly, Ben and new member Jamie find themselves being accused of causing some sort of plague that has overtaken the bases crew.
It is not too long until the Doctor knows what or who is responsible and is determined to help the base leader fight the culprits and make sure no more crewmembers become infected..
2 of the 4 episodes are missing so we do get them in animation form and it works really well, you don't feel cheated and this is the start of the first Cyberman redesign that would occur throughout their appearances in classic and New who.
We get commentary for episode 2 and 4 with Anneke Wills, Frazer Hines, Edward Phillips, Brian Hodgson.
Episodes 1 and 3 commentary there is a series of one to one interviews including those with Kit Pedlers daughters.
Great behind the scenes documentary by cast and crew who worked on this story, must have in collection if you are a fan of the Cyberman.
The animation being so poor that it was highly detremenal to any enjoyment that I could find in that particular story.
Here it was fantastic, the models were much better and the animation was more fluid and natural in it's movement.
While it could never beat seeing the original film it works very well.
The story was entertaining and at 4 parts was not a stodgy view.
For the Troughton starved this is an excellent DVD.
