This Doctor Who story, written by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, was first broadcast in four episodes in 1967.
This audio version consists of a digitally remastered soundtrack with linking narration provided by Frazer Hines.
On the planet Telos, the Doctor and his friends encounter a party of archaeologists intent on uncovering the mythical tomb of the Cybermen. Only the Doctor seems aware of the folly of this venture, but suddenly it’s too late – the ice tombs are open and the Cybermen are coming back to life…
Trapped underground with the Cyber Controller and his acolytes, including the vermin-like Cybermats, the Doctor and company learn that they are to be turned into a new generation of Cybermen. To make matters worse, there is treachery and double-crossing amongst the humans. Can the Cyber menace be made dormant before it spreads out to the galaxy once again – and will the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria escape with their lives?
