    TDP 134: Revenge of the Cybermen

    20:27 (GMT) - 25 Jul 2010

    Revenge of the Cybermen was the fifth and final story of Season 12 (although it was not originally intended as the finale). The story saw the return of the Cybermen as lead villains for the first time since the 1968 story The Invasion, and their only appearance (barring flashbacks) until Earthshock in Season 19. It was further significant for being the first Doctor Who story released on home video. Contents [show] 1 Synopsis 2 Plot 2.1 Part One 2.2 Part Two 2.3 Part Three 2.4 Part Four 3 Cast 4 Crew 5 References 5.1 Cybermen 5.2 Metals 5.3 Space stations 5.4 Transport technology 5.5 Time travel 5.6 Weapons 6 Story notes 6.1 Ratings 6.2 Myths 6.3 Filming locations 6.4 Production errors 7 Continuity 8 Timeline 9 Home video and audio releases 9.1 DVD releases 9.2 VHS and Betamax releases 9.3 Laserdisc releases 10 Novelisation and its audiobook 11 External links 12 Footnotes // edit Synopsis Everyone but a few men of the crew of Nerva Beacon have been killed by Cybermats. The Doctor realises that the Cybermen are close by and are hoping to destroy the planet Voga, the famous planet of gold. Gold is lethal to the Cybermen and Voga must be destroyed to enable their survival. The Doctor is captured and is sent to Voga with two humans, all three with bombs strapped to them. The Cybermen hope to detonate them in a sensitive spot in order to destroy Voga. But the Doctor manages to defuse the bombs, so instead the Cybermen decide to fill Nerva Beacon with bombs and crash into Voga. But the Doctor gets to Nerva and prevents it from destroying the planet of gold. Meanwhile the Cybermen retreat into their ship and the Vogans destroy it with a missile of their own. edit Plot [edit] Part One The Doctor, Harry and Sarah Jane use the Time Ring, spinning their way through time and space back to Space Station Nerva. They land back in the control room they left when they last beamed down to Earth, but Sarah notices the TARDIS is not there. The Doctor tells Sarah that the time ship is drifting back in time towards them and they just need to wait for her to catch up. A door slides open, revealing a dead body, and many more beyond, littering the outer ring of the station. In a communications room, crewman Warner warns off an approaching spaceship away from Nerva Beacon, which is under quarantine due to a plague. Professor Kellman, a planetary surveyor, asks Commander Stevenson how long they can run a 50-man station with three men, but the other officer, Lester, thinks they can continue to manage. Nerva is on a 30-year assignment to warn ships away from Voga, the new asteroid it is orbiting, until its presence is updated on all the starcharts of inbound ships. The time travellers find a sealed door leading to Section Q. The Doctor surmises that this is the same station they left, but thousands of years in the past, before the solar flares that devastated Earth. As the Doctor tries to get through the door, the trio fail to see a silver, snake-like creature — a cybermat — crawling around the bodies behind them. Somewhere else, an alien tries to contact Nerva, and barely gets through to Warner before he is shot by two more of his own kind. The only place the signal could have come from is Voga, but Kellman tells Warner that he set up the transmat station there and spent six months cataloguing its rocks. Voga had drifted into the solar system 50 years before and had been captured by Jupiter's gravity. An asteroid of that size drifting between star systems could not support life and he warns against going down to Voga and spreading the plague. Warner logs the call anyway. The Doctor manages to open the sealed door, which activates an alarm. On Voga, Vorus, leader of the Guardians of the mines, orders his men to bury the dead Vogan that was shot earlier. Magrik, his aide, tells him that the dead Vogan was frightened of Vorus's plan. Vorus tells him that they can trust their agent on Nerva. Gold buys humans, and they have more gold on Voga than in the rest of the galaxy. The reason the agent had not contacted them is probably because the Cybermen are monitoring transmissions. In the communications room, the Cybermat attacks Warner, biting him before it is thrown off. Warner collapses, glowing veins appearing on his face while Kellman enters and pulls the magnetic log tape from the console. Meanwhile, the Doctor, Harry and Sarah have reached the forward control room, mere seconds before Lester and Stevenson enter levelling their weapons at them. The door behind them slides open to reveal the communications room, and Kellman brings Stevenson to Warner's fallen form. When Stevenson sees that his crewman has the plague, he prepares to shoot Warner to stop the infection's spread, but the Doctor stops him. The Doctor lies, saying that they are a medical team sent from Earth, and convince Stevenson to let Harry examine Warner. They take Warner to the crew quarters as Kellman returns to his own room and spies on the Doctor and Stevenson in the communications room using an assembled device. Stevenson tells the Doctor about the asteroid, formerly named Neo Phobos, but renamed Voga by Kellman. The Doctor recognises the name: Voga, the Planet of Gold, and realises that Cybermen are involved. Stevenson says the Cybermen died out centuries before, but the Doctor points out they merely vanished after attacking Voga at the end of the last Cyber-War. Hearing all this, Kellman contacts a Cybership nearby, its crew commanded by a Cyber Leader with a black helmet. The ship moves towards Nerva. Warner is dead. When the Doctor examines the body he finds two puncture wounds, indicating that Warner was injected with poison and confirming the Doctor's suspicion that there is no plague. The Doctor says that if he had seen Warner earlier he might have been able to use Nerva's transmat to filter out the poison from his system. The Doctor has another suspicion; investigating Kellman's quarters, he finds the communications device as well as some gold. The Doctor hides when Kellman returns, but Kellman realises that someone has been inside the room. He sabotages the room, electrifying the floor and sending gas pouring up from it. Keeping off the floor, the Doctor reaches the door to open it with his sonic screwdriver. Meanwhile, Sarah is attacked by the cybermat. [edit] Part Two The Doctor escapes Kellman's room and hears Sarah scream. He throws the Cybermat to the floor and kills it with some gold dust, but Sarah has already been bitten. The Doctor carries her to the transmat chamber, handing her to Harry, and prepares to beam them down to Voga and back. However, Kellman has taken the transmat's pentalium drive. The Doctor reconfigures the transmat to bypass the sabotaged system while Stevenson and Lester go and confront Kellman. On Voga, Vorus observes a giant rocket, the Sky Striker. He tells Magrik that his agent has informed them that the Cybermen are heading for the beacon. Vorus wants the Sky Striker fitted with its bomb head in four hours. Obseving the incoming craft via radar The Doctor jury rigs the transmat, and Harry and Sarah beam down to Voga. With the poison filtered out, Sarah instantly recovers. As Harry notices that the cavern floor is littered with gold, Vogans arrive and capture them. Harry and Sarah are brought before Vorus, who wants to know who is still alive on Nerva. However, the answers will have to wait. Harry and Sarah are taken away while Vorus answers a call from Councillor Tyrum, who arranges for them to meet. Lester and Stevenson capture Kellman. The Doctor explains that the Cybermen fear Voga because gold, as a non-corrodible substance, plates their breathing apparatus and suffocates them. The Doctor cannot get Harry and Sarah back without the pentalium drive, but Kellman feigns ignorance, trying to buy time until the Cybermen arrive. The Doctor uses a control box he found in Kellman's room to activate a Cybermat, threatening Kellman with it until he reveals that the drive is around his neck. Harry and Sarah are chained up in a cave, where Harry notes that the chains are solid gold, which is soft metal that perhaps they can file through. Meanwhile, Tyrum tells Vorus that he knows that aliens have come to Voga. He also knows that Vorus wants Voga to emerge as a trading power again and not hide from the Cybermen, who apparently disappeared centuries ago. Because of this, Tyrum no longer trusts Vorus or the Guardians, and will send his Militia to take over the mines. Vorus is furious, but Tyrum says his troops have orders to crush any resistance. Fighting breaks out in the mines between the Guardians and the Militia. Vorus tells Magrik to keep Tyrum from finding out about the Sky Striker, and to kill the two humans immediately. Harry and Sarah have managed to free themselves, however, and get away before the execution team arrives. They are pursued by more Guardians, who fire at them. Harry and Sarah are cornered and about to be shot when Militia troops appear, forcing the Guardians to stand down. The Doctor has repaired the transmat, but is unable to lock on to Harry and Sarah as they have left the receptor circle. At that point, Lester detects an incoming ship, but it does not respond to their signals. As the Cybership docks, the Doctor recognises it for what it is, but is unable to lock the hatch. The Cybermen come through, impervious to gunfire, and shoot all three men down. [edit] Part Three The Cyber Leader tells Kellman that the three men are not dead, merely neutralised, as they are necessary to their plan. Kellman set the transmat receptors mere yards from a shaft that leads into the core of Voga. As the environment is hostile to Cybermen, the three men will carry explosives down to Voga and destroy the asteroid. Kellman insists on going down to Voga first to check that the transmat is functioning properly and the Cyber Leader beams him down. There, he runs into some Militia. Not realising the distinction between them and the Guardians, he demands to see Vorus and is taken away while trying to warn them that they are all in danger. Meanwhile, Harry and Sarah are brought before Tyrum and tell their story. When Harry mentions the cybermats, Tyrum asks Harry and Sarah to accompany him to confront Vorus. The Doctor wonders what Kellman's reward is, if it is not Voga's gold. He taunts the Cyber Leader, saying that the Cybermen were finished once humans discovered their weakness to gold and ended the Cyber-Wars. Cyber Leader tells the Doctor that is the reason why Voga must be destroyed before the Cybermen begin their campaign again. The Cyber Leader says that Kellman was promised the rule of the solar system after the Cybermen had conquered it. With Cyberbombs strapped to their backs, the Doctor, Lester and Stevenson are briefed. They are to plant the bombs in the core of the planet, after which they have 14 minutes to return and escape via transmat. If they try to remove their harnesses before they reach the target zone, a secondary explosion will kill them. Their progress will be followed by radar. The three beam down, accompanied by two Cybermen. Militia arrive and start to fire on the Cybermen, who make short work of the Vogans. None of the three men believe that the Cyber Leader will keep his word about letting them escape, but they have to keep moving towards the target zone as they are being monitored. On Nerva, the Cyber Leader declares that Kellman is of no further use to them. Tyrum questions Kellman, who tells him that he and Vorus were working to lure the Cybermen to the beacon, which Vorus has targeted with a rocket. At that moment, a Militia man arrives to tell Tyrum about the arrival of the Cybermen, and how their weapons are useless. Kellman urges them to use the rocket. Tyrum orders his men to use every weapon they can while he speaks to Vorus. Harry tells Sarah to get back to Nerva and warn the Doctor while he tries to stop the rocket from being fired. When Tyrum tells Vorus about the Cybermen on Voga, he shows Tyrum the Sky Striker, which he has been working on for two years. However, with the Cybermen already on Voga, they have no time to get it ready. Vorus claims his plans were to just free his people from the fear of the Cybermen and bring them back into the light. Tyrum scoffs, seeing as Vorus has allied himself with Kellman, a double agent and murderer, motivated only by the promise of gold. Harry suggests finding another way into the core to stop the bombs. The Cybermen continue their slaughter of the Vogans as the bomb timer ticks down even further. Sarah transmats back to Nerva, where she overhears the Cybermen monitoring the three men's progress. However, the deeper the three men go, the heavier the concentration of gold interferes with the radar. The men continue onward, however to the centre of the asteroid. Harry and Kellman, meanwhile, are crawling down a cross shaft towards the same location. With the exit blocked, Harry pushes against the rocks, causing a rock slide. Kellman pushes Harry out of the way, but is crushed to death by a boulder, while on the other side, rocks rain down on the Doctor. Harry exits the shaft and finds the Doctor unconscious. Not realising the danger, Harry tries to unbuckle the Doctor's harness. [edit] Part Four Destruction of the Cybership Fortunately, Harry is stopped by Lester. The Doctor awakens and conceives a plan. Stevenson will continue on and create a radar trail, while the rest use the cross shaft to surprise and attack the Cybermen with gold. The Doctor and Harry jump the two Cybermen, trying to push gold dust into their chest plates. However, the Cybermen are too strong, and Harry and the Doctor are forced to retreat. Lester leaps onto the Cybermen and undoes his harness, the explosion killing both himself and the Cybermen. With the loss of contact, the Cyber Leader orders immediate detonation. Sarah tries to stop them but is thrown to the floor. However, when the button is pressed, no explosion follows. The Doctor has managed to disarm the countdown device, which allows him to release his harness safely. With Sarah tied up, the Cyber Leader now plans to send Nerva, loaded with more Cyberbombs, into Voga's centre to destroy it. Magrik tells Vorus that the Sky Striker is now ready, but before he can launch it, the Doctor asks them to give him 15 minutes to transmat to Nerva and deal with the Cybermen himself, armed with a bag of gold dust. If he does not contact them by that time, then they can launch the rocket. The Doctor reaches Nerva and frees Sarah while the Cybermen are loading the bombs. He takes the Cybermat and its control box, filling the Cybermat with gold dust. The Doctor sends the Cybermat to attack a Cyberman, injecting him with the dust and killing him. As Nerva begins to move towards Voga, Vorus sees this and attempts to fire the rocket. Tyrum shoots Vorus, but as the Guardian dies, he triggers the launch. The Doctor and Sarah's attack on the remaining Cybermen fails; The Doctor is forced by the Cyberleader to tie himself and Sarah up and they are left to perish in the crash. However, the Sky Striker is approaching just as fast. The Doctor manages to untie them both with a trick learned from Harry Houdini, and contacts Voga, instructing them to steer the rocket towards the Cybership that is just leaving. The Sky Striker veers away from Nerva and destroys the Cybership instead. However, the beacon is still on a collision course. The Doctor manages to unlock the gyro controls, skimming Nerva just above Voga's surface until they reach the other side of the asteroid and open space. The TARDIS materialises in the control room just as Harry arrives via transmat. The Doctor tells his companions to hurry up; he's received a message from Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart through the space-time telegraph the Doctor left him, which means it, is a grave emergency. Although Harry asks if they should say good-bye to the Commander, Sarah tells him not to argue. The three rush into the TARDIS and it dematerialises. edit Cast The Doctor - Tom Baker Sarah Jane Smith - Elisabeth Sladen Harry Sullivan - Ian Marter Commander Stevenson - Ronald Leigh-Hunt Lester - William Marlowe Kellman - Jeremy Wilkin Tyrum - Kevin Stoney Vorus - David Collings Warner - Alec Wallis Magrik - Michael Wisher Sheprah - Brian Grellis Cyberleader - Christopher Robbie First Cyberman - Melville Jones edit Crew Assistant Floor Manager - Rosemary Hester, Russ Karel Costumes - Prue Handley Designer - Roger Murray-Leach Film Cameraman - Elmer Cossey Film Editor - Sheila S Tomlinson Incidental Music - Carey Blyton, Peter Howell Make-Up - Cecile Hay-Arthur Producer - Philip Hinchcliffe Production Assistant - John Bradburn Production Unit Manager - George Gallaccio Script Editor - Robert Holmes Special Sounds - Dick Mills Studio Lighting - Derek Slee Studio Sound - Norman Bennett Theme Arrangement - Delia Derbyshire Title Music - Ron Grainer Visual Effects - Jim Ward edit References [edit] Cybermen The Doctor says to the Cybermen, "You've no home planet, no influence, nothing.", which may refer to either Mondas or Telos. The Doctor refers to the Cybermen calling them "total machine creatures". [edit] Metals The Cybermen plan to destroy Voga because of its high density of gold. [edit] Space stations The Doctor, Sarah and Harry have been to the 'beacon' before, in the future when it becomes Nerva Beacon. [edit] Transport technology Phobic energy is associated with recent transmat use. [edit] Time travel The Doctor's TARDIS has been travelling back through time to reach the Doctor and his companions. Once the Doctor and his companions have finished using the time ring, it disappears. [edit] Weapons During the Cyber-Wars, the glittergun was used to great effect by humanity. The Armageddon Convention banned Cyberbombs, two of which could destroy Voga. edit Story notes A new Cybermat. This story features a new form of Cybermat. This is the first story to feature the Cyber-Leader. The BBC Radiophonic Workshop's Peter Howell, later to become one of the series' regular incidental music composers, made his uncredited debut on this story when he was asked by producer Philip Hinchcliffe to add to, and enhance, the score provided by Carey Blyton. This story had a working titles of; The Revenge Of The Cybermen, Return Of The Cybermen, additionally; Part 1 had a working title of: The Beacon In Space Part 2 had a working title of: The Plague Carriers Part 3 had a working title of: The Gold Miners Part 4 had a working title of: The Battle For The Nerva A number of sets in this story were reused from The Ark in Space, which was recorded immediately before it. The Cybermen's voices were provided for the first time by the actors inside the costumes. Five of this story's guest cast had played notable roles earlier in Doctor Who's history: Kevin Stoney in The Daleks' Master Plan and in the previous Cyberman story, The Invasion Christopher Robbie in The Mind Robber Ronald Leigh-Hunt in The Seeds of Death William Marlowe as Harry Mailer in The Mind of Evil. Michael Wisher would go on to play Davros in Genesis of the Daleks, which came after Revenge of the Cybermen in production order even though it was aired prior to this serial. The Vogan seal is reused by designer Roger Murray-Leach in The Deadly Assassin. Between the broadcast of Episodes 1 and 2, William Hartnell, the First Doctor, passed away. Ironically he died during broadcast of a serial that served to reintroduce the Cybermen -- his final solo appearance as the Doctor occurred during the serial that introduced them. [edit] Ratings Part 1 - 9.5 million viewers Part 2 - 8.3 million viewers Part 3 - 8.9 million viewers Part 4 - 9.4 million viewers [edit] Myths to be added [edit] Filming locations Wookey Hole Caves, Wells, Somerset BBC Television Centre (Puppet theatre, TC1, TC8), Shepherd's Bush, London [edit] Production errors The symbol seen hanging in the Vogan audience chamber (and smaller versions on the Vogan costumes), would later be re-used in The Deadly Assassin, and become better known thereafter as the Seal of Rassilon. (The Time Lords may have had some influence on Voga during the time before their Non-Intervention policy.) The launching of the Skystriker is represented by rather obvious NASA stock footage of a Saturn V rocket taking off. The Doctor was wearing a long brown coat and hat at the end of the previous story, but they've vanished when he materializes. Lester wears his interplanetary Space command insignia upside down. When the Doctor enters the TARDIS in episode four the paper printout of the space/time telegraph can be seen hanging on a hook just inside the door. At the end of the story, the Cyber-ship explodes into flames, yet oxygen is need for fire, and The Cybermen do not breathe, as seen in The Moonbase so why would the cybermen have oxygen on there ship? they may take prisoners edit Continuity This story takes place after the Cyber-Wars, which started in 2526 in DW: Earthshock. The Cybermen of that story look at video of past encounters with the Doctor and watch him deliver the "no planet" line. It later becomes clear (Attack of the Cybermen) that the Cybermen have had access to time travel technology. The Cybermen's first home planet Mondas was destroyed in DW: The Tenth Planet, while their second home planet Telos was destroyed in BFA: Telos, which was made some time after this story. The discrepancy over how many moons Jupiter should have is resolved in EDA: To the Slaughter. edit Timeline This story occurs after MA: A Device of Death This story occurs before ST: Nanomorphosis edit Home video and audio releases [edit] DVD releases This story was first released on DVD in the UK on 9th August 2010 as part of the Cybermen boxset.

    I mean, er...we are honored and pleased to have guest bartender Lillibet from the Professor Dave's Ark in Space podcast with us this evening as we explore the Ninth Doctor in "The Long Game."

    Frankly, this show was a long time coming, as it was recorded almost three weeks ago and we've recorded Episode 23 since then (timey-wimey), and our memories of this recording are not all that fresh.  So fill this space with your comments regarding Christopher Eccleston, Simon Pegg, or maybe even something appropriate regarding this being the first member of the fairer sex along for the ride.  (We promised to be really, really polite or else we knew we'd end up with Professor's Dave boot up our ass.)

    Hate us?  Or want to make passionate love to us?  Send us some email at tardistavern@gmail.com, join our Facebook page (we're tied with Professor Dave's page, let's beat 'em), or follow Sean on Twitter @tardistavern or Steve @SteveTARDIStvrn (no A or E in Tavern).

    01:48 (GMT) - 20 Jul 2010

    In something of a continuation from our last episode, we decided to review the episodes of the second half of Series 5. Little did we know that the discussion would rage on for over 2 hours! So, we decided to split the episode into 2 parts, the first of which you find here. Nat, Katrina, and Erik natter away about "The Hungry Earth," "Cold Blood," and "Vincent and The Doctor."

    Show Notes Introduction

    @ 1 minute - Who we are.

    General Discussion

    @ 1 minutes 45 seconds - An open call for Season 5 inspired creativity, especially items on personal blogs or other out of the way places.

    @ 4 minutes 50 seconds - We begin with "The Hungry Earth," which gets compared to an EastEnders intro to The Phantom Menace. Whether that's a good or a bad thing, we'll let you decide. Plus, did the BBC make a mistake in letting everyone know that the Silurians were back?

    @ 15  minutes - We start to move on in earnest to "Cold Blood," which comes in for a bit more criticism than we're accustomed to dispensing. In particular, did the Silurians get the relaunch and introduction to a new generation that they deserved?

    @ 23 minutes 45 seconds - Rory's temporary death and the nature of the crack get looked at from all sorts of angles, prompting a lively discussion about "soft rewrites."

    @ 39 minutes - "Vincent and the Doctor" takes its turn in the spotlight, with the space chicken, Vincent's illness, and the historical inaccuracy of the episode prompting strong reactions all around.

    @ 59 minutes - A promise of more to come...

    If you have any feedback about anything we’ve discussed, you can send messages on Twitter directed @BridgingTheRift, comment on this blog post or send short MP3 feedback to our GoogleMail address.  You can also "like" us on Facebook and leave comments there.
