Sixth Doctor vs Cybermen

4 May 2018

The 1980s Cybermen are returning! The Hour of the Cybermen, a Sixth Doctor tale, is out this July, and the Sixth Doctor meets the new UNIT team – but will they trust him? Read on for some exciting cast news for this release.

You can now listen to the epic trailer for Hour of the Cybermen by Andrew Smith, coming out in July.

Answering a call from UNIT, the Doctor arrives in London to find the streets deserted, apart from looters in possession of a valuable commodity – water.

Britain is suffering an extreme and bizarre drought. The cause is suspected to be extra-terrestrial.

The discovery of a signal being transmitted into space, and of a spacecraft whose crew are desiccated corpses, provides a possible answer. But the true enemy is an old foe of the Doctor’s.

The Cybermen have been patient, setting their plans in place over a number of years. As the final stage is implemented, in the darkest hour, the Doctor must identify who among his allies he can trust.

Playing the Cybermen we’ve two 1980s Doctor Who television actors returning to their roles, with David Banks as the Cyber Leader and Mark Hardy as the Cyber Lieutenant.

Joining them on this adventure along with the Sixth Doctor are Frog Stone as Riva, Blake Harrison as Daniel Hopkins, Wayne Forester as Captain Reaver and Russ Bain as Lewis Price. But what has happened to this new UNIT team since the events of the Fifth Doctor and The Helliax Rift? And will they trust this latest regeneration? Find out in July!

Coming out this month in the Doctor Who Main Range, the Sixth Doctor has a new companion, Mathew Sharpe – space pilot in The Lure of the Nomad.

For thousands of years, it has drifted through space, unimpeded, forgotten, seemingly lifeless. Now, finally, it has been discovered.
Responding to a distress call from the mysterious hulk, the Doctor and his companion, space pilot Mathew Sharpe, walk into a desperate situation. The multi-tentacled
semibionic Makara were tasked with renovating the abandoned craft, but now they’ve begun murdering their employers.
The Doctor soon
realises that the Makara have been programmed to kill, but by whom, and for what reason? Finding out the truth will mean uncovering a secret that threatens the entire universe.

And next month, the Sixth Doctor visits the Industrial Revolution in Iron Bright.

It's London, 1828, and the father-and-son team of Marc and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, are masterminding a dangerous project – the digging of the Thames Tunnel. There's just one problem...

The Brunels' tunnel is haunted. Every night, a spectral blue lady walks the excavation.

Now, the 22-year-old Isambard, eager to step out of his famous father's shadow, finds himself dealing with not only the supposed supernatural, but a second unexpected guest – a colourful trespasser who calls himself 'the Doctor'.

Isambard would like to know a great deal more about this strange man and his mysterious blue box...
