Tomb Of The Cybermen on DVD intrigued me. With so many of the participants from that era of the series having passed on, who would they get to talk about it?
Evil Of The Daleks, title sequence tests for the new opening titles with Troughton's face, and a half-hour convention appearance by many of the stars and guest stars of Tomb Of The Cybermen upon the first public screening of the four-parter when long-lost tapes of it were recovered in 1992.
All things considered, it was damned amazing that Tomb Of The Cybermen survived to be shown in this form, or shown at all, rather than being relegated to the TV-by-way-of-audio medium that has become the permanent resting place of many a classic specimen of 1960s Who.

Tomb of the Cybermen brought the Doctor, Patrick Troughton, into conflict with his silver cyborg nemeses for a third time, following The Tenth Planet (1966) and The Moonbase (1967).
That Tomb exists at all, of course, is a miracle; like much Who of the era, it was junked from the BBC archives in the 1970s, and remained lost without trace for years afterwards.
The odd thing about Tomb is that the legendary Cybermen aren't really given much to do; in fact, they barely make it out of their subterranean prison for much of the story.

 Review - DVD: Doctor Who - The Tomb of the Cybermen
Sometime in the 1970s, somebody at the BBC decided it would be a good housekeeping move to destroy a bunch of old Doctor Who footage from the 60s.
The good news is several complete series were discovered not too long ago and, thanks to the mind-boggling magic performed by the Doctor Who Restoration Team, they look radically better today than they did on those old TV screens when they first ran.
The Tomb of the Cybermen (1967) is one of these lost series, now available in its entirety on one extras-packed DVD.
