"The Twelve Doctors."
Patrick Troughton plays the second Doctor in this four-episode adventure from 1967, set on Earth's moon and featuring a return appearance by the emotionless Cybermen. The year is 2070, and the Earth's weather is controlled by a device called the Gravitron which is under threat from a plague epidemic and the Cybermen.
"amazing. too bad it's missing"
Patrick Troughton's Doctor encounters the Cybermen in London in this classic soundtrack adventure, narrated by Frazer Hines. Arriving on Earth in 1975, the Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe discover that the component manufacturers International Electromagnetics has a vice-like grip on the world's technology.
Following an emergency landing, the Tardis arrives on a remote world orbiting a peculiar star - a pulsar which exerts an enormous gravitational force, strong enough to warp time. On further exploration the Doctor and his friends, Jamie and Zoe, discover a human outpost on the planet surface, inhabited by scientists who are there to study an ancient city. The city is apparently abandoned, but the scientists are at a loss to explain what happened to its sophisticated alien architects.
"Frazer Hines channels Patrick Troughton"
On the planet Telos, the Doctor and his friends encounter a party of archaeologists intent on uncovering the mythical "tomb of the Cybermen". Only the Doctor seems aware of the folly of this venture, but suddenly it's too late, the ice tombs are open, and the Cybermen are coming back to life.
When Jamie McCrimmon brings the Second Doctor a mysterious book, little does he realise the danger contained within its pages. The book transports the Tardis to a terrifying glass city on a distant world, where the Archons are intent on getting revenge on the Time Lord for an ancient grudge...
