Cybermen on the moon sounds like a curious dream, but it's actually a fun, four episode story featuring the charming and immensely watchable Patrick Trougton as the Doctor. He's an absolute treat to watch, but as any fan knows, many of his episodes were not saved, including some painfully key stories in the series. But as a base under siege story (the humans have a base on the moon, under attack by the Cybermen), The Moonbase at least holds up as really entertaining.

With this particular story, two of the episodes are in the BBC archives, and the remaining two have been animated to the original soundtrack (as it's the visuals that are missing), so fans will get a mix of visuals, but it isn't jarring to watch, and the animation is excellent with impressive likenesses of the actors -- Planet 55 has already animated several releases.

A handful of other stories have been released with one or two animated episodes, including The Invasion, The Ice Warriors (Troughton) and The Reign of Terror and The Tenth Planet (William Hartnell as the Doctor). Hopefully these releases will do well enough that we'll see more of this. Here's what to expect:

- Fully remastered episodes 2 and 4.
- Animated episodes 1 and 3, with the original soundtrack recordings
- Lunar Landing: the cast and crew look back on making the story
- Commentary on all episodes featuring actors and production staff
- Photo gallery
- Trailer for the next release.

Hi all!

I had the same experience when I bought "Terror Of The Autons" and "The Daemons". After playing the discs on my PC with no problems at all I decided to check my my Sony Blu-Ray player. It was "interpreting" the discs as film and applying the 3:2 pull down feature resulting in a 24p picture which eliminated the VidFIRE effect. I changed a setting on the unit and VOILA! A perfect 60p picture! Odd but it worked. I was about to order this disc but stopped after reading 2 reviews about this problem. I'll double-check the settings to recreate the problem and correct it again and then report back on what the exact fix is. Fear not, Whovians. :)

While I love Doctor Who, especially the classic series over the reboot, I found this particular story a bit plodding. It just seemed to drag and, at times, I couldn't wait to be over. Similar thematically to "The Tenth Planet", which I think is superior.

When I started watching this I wondered why I didn't notice it was animation. Then it turned live. It turns out that in order to maintain continuety they had to animate some episodes to replace lost video tracks. Works for me!
