tomb of cyberman
Favourite TV Show Episode Blogathon which takes place this easter weekend is about bloggers talking about their favorite tv show episode. So today i am talking about tomb of the cybermen which is one of my favorite serials of doctor who. It is also the birthday of the leading doctor of this tale whom is Patrick Troughton who is a wonderful legend of the britsh acting that led the show to new heights after the leaving of the frist doctor. So happy birthday to this wonderful legend i hope you enjoy my review of this classic tale.
The Doctor goes on an archaeological dig on the planet of the Cybermen only to find that they’re still very much alive, and much more creepy than their modern fibreglass equivalents. It is one creepy tale that really effectively make the cybermen some of the best villains in the show’s history it is a mix of the hammer horror meets universal’s the mummy. This smartly crafted tale with such great acting and depth brings to life the cybermen in a creepy way that really can be effectively called something amazing and noteworthy. Patrick Troughton gives us his finest hour as the doctor as he really brings to life this tale to such great effect. Fans of the era should watch out for Hammer veteran George Pastell playing yet another weaselly character while Roy Stewart makes an impact as an imposing strongman. Frazer Hines and Deborah Watling have such great moments giving us some of their finest hours. I would also say many one thing one can notice its nods to Metropolis in many of its scenes with the cybermen. It turns them into some of the creepest villains ever. Tomb of cybermen form its wonderful casting to its great and creepy layers remains one of the best doctor who tales to ever grace the screen.
The ruth rating:
Jamie McCrimmon played by Jamie McCrimmon. He faced off against Daleks, Cybermen, Time Lords, Ice Warriors, the Yeti, and even a unicorn. And yet, he never lost his cool throughout those adventures as he stands out as the acting by the actor lead is just truly outstanding as they come. I acted alongside today’s birthday boy Patrick Troughton as a small tribute i thought i put this nod to one of my favorite companions of his era. Happy birthday to Patrick Troughton i hope you enjoyed my review of this classic serial.
