This one is 'okay'. I don't love it and I don't hate it. It would have been better if we'd seen more of the Cybermen. The Vogans were a bit naff. What we did see of the Cybermen wasn't mind blowing either. However, it's still watch-able and fun.

All in all, an okay story. Nothing spectacular, nothing terrible either. 3/5.

Not particularly exciting...boring, actually. Not really a fan of Cybermen being "allergic" to gold...I always thought that was kind of crap. The Cyber voices are barely modulated...they sound like the actors' talking from inside their helmets with practically no enhancement at all. The Vogans are kind of weak, and the fact that they put the incredibly expressive face of the great Kevin Stoney in one of those masks is criminal.

The only props I can give this one is the re-use of the great sets from Ark in Space and the new look for the Cybermen. In addition, Tom was great in the confrontation scene with the Cyber Leader in episode 3. I love the way he practically sneers at him.

Seven years since the previous Cyberman story, and we get this mediocre one. No surprise it took another seven years until the next one...
