Summary: Curiously, the Cybermen can be found here displaying the distinctly human need for revenge, in a story of Vogan infighting and the lust for gold. The TARDIS crew discover that travel by time ring is not so reliable and deadly diseases can be cured by a transmat. Essentially, everybody wants gold for one reason or another (just whose side is Kellman on?), but the Doctor manages to escape the buckle of doom and spoil the Cyber fun.
Watch it because: Harry the Buffoon.
Original Air Date: 19 April – 10 May 1975.
Doctor: Tom Baker.
Companions: Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) and Harry Sullivan (Ian Marter).
I'm a 40-something scientist. I'm a big fangirl of most sci-fi, especially Doctor Who. I started watching in the early 80s when it was on PBS here in the US. Started again with the new series around 2006, stuck with that as much as I could and then got really into the Classic series again around 2014. I like to create art and write fanfiction. I'm also into Stargate, Mystery Science Theater 3000 and a few others, but I'll be blogging about Doctor Who here. I have a Tumblr blog of the same name but lately they've been wrongly flagging my photo posts as "adult content", so I decided to back up/move my blog to WordPress. I've backed up all my Tumblr posts and although my Tumblr blog is still active, I'll probably post here more often.
