Storyline

The Doctor and his traveling companions, Jamie and Victoria, arrive on a planet where an archaeological expedition led by Professor Parry is searching for the home of the long-extinct Cybermen. Parry believes they have found the Cybermen's home, the city of Telos. The Doctor finds a way to get them inside the complex and the group splits up to explore what they've found. It's clear that at least one member of the party is up to no good. It all leads to death for one of them. Written by garykmcd

Episode 1 - the plot thickens
21 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although I've never considered myself a Cyberman fan, I really enjoyed the brooding set up this first of 4 episode. A strange deserted city is presented with the knowledge we know it is the home of the cybermen and we really know they are not dead. It is not stated in the episode, but we just know, just like the Doctor The cast is competent, although the bad guy/girl Klieg and Kaftan seem a little more stock standard and Hammer Horror orientated than the others.

The cliff hanger does not seem to make a lot of sense at this stage, but I assume as always the reasons for the death of the scientist and Jamie becoming almost hypnotized will be revealed
