The Tomb of the Cybermen is the 1967 first story of the fifth season of Doctor Why. It is the earliest story starring Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor known to exist in its entirety. It's also probably the only Patrick Troughton story you've seen.


You know what sounds like a good idea? Trying to make a deal with the Cybermen.

You know what sounds like a great idea? Trying to do it two more times.

You know what sounds like a bloody brilliant idea? Helping someone defrost the Cybermen to find out whether they want to defrost the Cybermen.



Tomb of the Cybermen is Matt Smith's favourite Classic Who story. Apparently it's the only DVD he had when he was imprisoned in Moffat's rape dungeon.
