Product Description

Aided by his two assistants Jamie and Victoria, the Doctor lands the TARDIS on Telos, last resting place of the infamous Cybermen. There he discovers a band of archaelogists on a secret expedition to unearth the reason for his old enemies’ extinction. In the underground shadowy depths, they find the icy tomb. A whole army in hibernation. A threat to no one, if the temperature remains low. But if the traitor in their midst gets his way, things could really heat up. Originally broadcast in 1967 and then lost, this unique four part adventure starring Patrick Troughton – the Doctor’s 2nd incarnation – was only recently discovered. It is now available for the first time on this special BBC Video which includes an exclusive interview with director Morris Barry.

The Tomb of the Cybermen: Episode 1

Kaftan: Fifty pounds for the first man to open the doors.
Professor Parry: Miss Kaftan, I must remind you that I am the leader of the…
[the Crewman rushes up to the doors, where he is electrocuted as soon as he touches them]
Captain Hopper: What happened?
Professor Parry: I don’t know.
Captain Hopper: Well, one thing for sure, he’s not gonna collect fifty pounds from you or anybody else.

The Tomb of the Cybermen: Episode 2

Jamie: Hey, what on Earth?
Professor Parry: Behold, gentlemen, the Tombs of the Cybermen.
Jamie: Tombs? I don’t see any tombs.
The Doctor: [pointing] There, Jamie. Frozen forever. All their evil locked away with them. And so it must remain.
Eric Klieg: Like a gigantic honeycomb. Like bees waiting for the signal to arise from their winter sleep.
The Doctor: A signal that they are never going to get.
John Viner: We’d better get busy, Everything must be recorded. It’s too cold to remain for long…
Eric Klieg: Unless we find some way to warm things up.

The Tomb of the Cybermen: Episode 3

The Doctor: The power cable generated an electrical field and confused their tiny metal minds. You might almost say they’ve had a complete “metal” breakdown.
Jamie: [groans] Oooh!
The Doctor: I’m so sorry, Jamie.

The Doctor: [reassuring Victoria, who misses her father, with recollections of his own family] I have to really want to – to bring them back in front of my eyes. The rest of the time they… they sleep in my mind, and I forget. [At her expression] And so will you. Oh, yes, you will. You’ll find there’s so much else to think about, to remember. Our lives are different to anybody else’s. That’s the exciting thing! Because nobody in the universe can do what we’re doing. You must get some sleep, and let this poor old man stay awake.

The Tomb of the Cybermen: Episode 4

The Doctor: [Klieg is holding The Doctor, Jamie, and Toberman at gunpoint] Yes. As you say, such a combination between intelligence and… power would make you formidable indeed. Why, you would be… Commander of the Universe with your brilliance! It… It makes the imagination reel with the possibilities!
Eric Klieg: Why, Doctor, if I had only known you shared my imagination, you might even have worked for me.
The Doctor: Perhaps it’s not too late.
Jamie: Doctor!
The Doctor: No, Jamie. Don’t you see? Don’t you see what this is going to mean to all the people who come to serve… Klieg – the All-Powerful? Why, no country, no person, would dare to have a single thought that was not your own! – Eric Klieg’s own conception of the… Of the way of life!
Eric Klieg: Brilliant! Yes. Yes, you’re right! Master of the world!
The Doctor: Well, now I know you’re mad; I just wanted to make sure.

Cyberman Controller: We must survive! We must survive!
Toberman: You are evil!
The Doctor: Toberman, come away!
Jamie: Careful, you’ll get killed man!
Toberman: They shall never pass Toberman. The door is closed.
