The 1980s Cybermen return today in the latest adventure from the Doctor Who Main Range. The Sixth Doctor and UNIT must work together to stop them, but UNIT are wary since their last encounter with the Doctor...
David Banks returns as the voice of the Cyber Leader and Mark Hardy plays the Cyber Lieutenant. Joining Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor, Blake Harrison as Daniel Hopkins and Russ Bain as Lewis Price, Wayne Forester plays Captain Weaver and Frog Stone plays Riva.
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.

London, 2017. Except... it isn't. Berlin, 1961. But it isn't that either. Not really. Not in the timeline the Doctor knows. Something is very wrong.
While Ace tries to save the life of a wounded British spy, Mel and the Doctor must get to grips with the modern day socialist Republic of Mokoshia. For Mel it feels strangely familiar and 'right', which makes the Doctor feel even more uneasy.
Soon, a message from a dark and blood-soaked distant future is on its way... But the Doctor will have to act fast to stop this timeline becoming reality.
And with Ace stranded in an alternate 1961, will saving the Earth end her existence?
