Format: DVD
American fans of "Doctor Who" were usually introduced to the series through Tom Baker, the "Doctor with the floppy hat and long scarf" -- and rarely if ever got to see William Hartnell or Patrick Troughton in their roles as the first and second Doctors. Troughton's Doctor, although he remains one of the most loved actors in the role, has the least amount of surviving episodes, since the BBC thoughtlessly destroyed several stories in the 1970s. Ironically, since Troughton's great portrayal cemented "Doctor Who" as a continuing series. If he had failed in his role as the second Doctor, we wouldn't have forty years of the series to look back upon.
Ten years ago, I remember when word first leaked out about the discovery of more Patrick Troughton episodes. "Tomb" was considered a treasure, but if you held out for the DVD instead of buying it then, it was well worth the wait. This story has been lovingly restored, looking beautiful and not muddy, as the 1993 VHS release did.
And what a story - opened up tremendously by the restoration. The stop animation of the Tomb manages to be suitably creepy thirty-odd years later, and there's great acting all around, from Troughton to the supporting cast. The spaceship crew is a team of overeager Americans, which is the first time I'd ever seen "colonists", so to speak, on "Doctor Who". The creature Cybermats are also introduced, which are darling and just a bit menacing - although they didn't manage to storm the UK, and become as popular with children as the Daleks had. (My older brother had his own toy Daleks in the mid 1960s - too bad none of them made it into his adulthood.

Thanks to a discovery in Hong Kong in 1992, "The Tomb of the Cybermen" is now the earliest "Doctor Who" of the Patrick Troughton era to remain completely intact. And it is a great adventure. The scenes with the Cybermen are quite frightening, but Troughton's humour keeps it from becoming too scary. With a great supporting cast and some fairly decent visual effects, "The Tomb of the Cybeermen" is a treasure that belongs in anyone's collection of "Who" episodes. The extras on this disc are little, but totally worthwhile!

This is one of the best Dr. Who episodes I've seen and children and adults alike will enjoy the mystery, action and drama encountered in The Tomb Of The Cybermen. The story is entertaining as are the costumes, performances and FX (such as they are). This one is fun to watch repeatedly and is a good introduction for anyone who wants to see what Dr. Who is about. For fans, you've got to have this one!

This is one of the best Doctor Who episodes ever. That's saying very little... this is one of the best examples of sci fi tv ever! What's so good? What isn't? Patrick Torughton as the Doctor and Frzer Hines as Jamie are probably the best Doctor / companion team in the history of Doctor Who (that is saying a lot) and here they are in fine form, playing off of each other quite well. The episode is moody, superbly written television and the supporting cast is pretty strong (except for the Pilot). This is the best pre-Tom Baker Doctor Who in my opinion, and is a sad lone relic of complete episodes from the missing early Troughton era. And by the way, a great starting point for non-fans or fans unfamiliar with the "classic" era. There is a great opening scene where the Doctor explains the whole premise of the show to the new companion Victoria. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for fans and non fans alike. OH and one more thing: why they changed the Cybermen after this is beyond me.

This by far the a classic. I first saw this as a child of five and the image of the cybermen coming out of there tombs stayed with me and is why the second doctor is by far my favorite.
Im not going to talk about the story as that has been done by other reviewers, but about the DVD. I already owned the video and loved it but was disappointed by the quality. we have to remember the original medium it was recorded on was not high quality film but BW video. THe DVD did an excellent job of restoring the video to as near original condition. The old video look adds charm and character. THe extras are fine I love the alternate titles, the restoration feature shows the damage that was cleaned up, Damage that was quite evident in the VHS video. Another feature I like, not just with this video but others, is the use of an additional closed caption track to give behind the scenes info. All in all a fine job especially considering the age of the material. I Own a good number of DR Who videos and would buy them again on DVD on the strength of this release

This is the first story featuring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor to make it on to DVD, and it's a classic! Unfortunately, very few of his stories have survived in the BBC archives, and indeed, this particular four part adventure, broadcast in the UK in the fall of 1967, was wiped and presumed lost after it's one and only UK transmission. Remarkably, prints of the tapes turned up in Hong Kong in 1992 and were returned to BBC Video, who cleaned them up and rush released them on home VHS. This edition has been digitally remastered and transformed once more, allowing for a very sharp picture and soundtrack which must be as good as the original ever was. A demonstration of the clean-up and results is included as an extra on the disc. The other extras are somewhat disappointing in certain respects. First of all, the commentary provided by Frazer Hines and (the irritatingly theatrical) Deborah Watling, who star alongside the second Doctor as his companions Jamie and Victoria. Newcomers to the show will doubtless be entertained by the warm and jovial chit-chat between the two, but those of us familiar with the world of Doctor Who will recognize their dialogue from numerous interviews the two have given over the years. Indeed the contrived "spontaneity" of their banter is now beginning to irritate me. This is highlighted by another extra on the disc, a taped panel discussion recorded in 1992, with virtually all the surviving cast and production team. Here Deborah and Frazer go through almost exactly the same "spontaneous" routine once more. This thirty minute background to the show is fascinating, if only to see how all the cast have aged over the years! Also here is an introduction from Director Morris Barry, a brief piece to camera originally recorded for the video tape release.Read more ›
