This Doctor Who story, written by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, was first broadcast in four episodes in 1966.
It features the last regular appearance of William Hartnell as the Doctor and the first appearance of the Cybermen.
This audio version consists of a digitally remastered soundtrack with linking narration provided by Anneke Wills.
The year is 1986, and at the South Pole the crew of the Snowcap Base have detected a new planet on their radar. The arrival of the Doctor, Ben and Polly at the Base coincides with another landing – that of a spaceship whose humaoid passengers have used cybernetics to replace their limbs and vital organs. Battling alongside the humans to save their planet, the Doctor appears to weaken and age before the eyes of his companions.
