Storyline

In 2526, 8 Earth paleontologists and geologist were investigating a fossil find in a newly discovered case when 7 of them disappear. The only one who seems to have got out is Professor Kyle. She accompanies Lt. Scott and his troop of soldiers into the unmapped caves to see if they can find her colleagues. What they find however is the Doctor and his traveling companions Nyssa, Adric and Tegan who have also just arrived in the TARDIS. They're near the location where the scientific expedition was attacked and Scott suspects the Doctor. There are others in the in the subterranean structures however. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Eric Saward was very happy with the score by Malcolm Clarke, which he said added another dimension to the story. See more »

Goofs

When the troopers are in the caves, the two dark figures in background walk past (to the right) and one of the troopers stops and turns around. As he does this the shadow of a crewmember can be briefly seen on the left wall. This is not the dark figure's shadow because they have already walked past. See more »

Quotes

[the androids attack]
Kyle: Who are they?
The Doctor: Androids. That's why they didn't register on your scanners.
Scott: Androids?
[to the Doctor]
Scott: Are they yours?
The Doctor: No. And if you want proof you'll find they'll kill me as willingly as they'll kill you.
[one of the androids fires at them and they duck behind the rock. Seconds later, the Doctor looks over the top of the rock again]
The Doctor: See what I mean?

Kids today...
5 April 2010 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I'm not a Whovian by any stretch of the imagination, but used to watch every episode as a child in the 70s and 80s. How things have changed! I'm currently sitting here in 2010 watching this with my 7 and 10 year olds on SciFi HD on a 37" LCD screen with my kids absolutely falling about laughing at the effects, acting (how many times has that Cyberman said "Eeeexcellent" like Mr Burns from The Simpsons?) and the story-lines. This is just a few days after they were truly wowed by Matt Smith's debut as The Doctor.

Having said that, they are still sitting here nearly an hour and a half later... There must be something in it.
