The TARDIS lands at the South Pole in 1986. The arrival coinciodes with the appearance of Earth's forgotten twin planet Mondas along with visitors from that world - the emotionless Cybermen. It's up to the Doctor and his friends to stop the creatures before they convert Earth's population into similar cyber creations - but the encounter will have a devastating effect on the Doctor ...

This DVD containd a brand-new animated episode 4, currently missing from the BBC Archives.


It was the end but the moment had been prepared for. The Tenth Planet stands out as one of the biggest game-changing stories in the history of Doctor Who. Not only does it introduce viewers to the Cybermen for the first time - popular emotionless creatures that would appear again and again for years to come - but it also reveals something that we didn't know about the Doctor. If his body becomes too old or damaged, he can change it ...

For three years, William Hartnell had starred as the Doctor, a role he loved and helped create - the curmudgeonly old man, who was brilliant, stubborn, childlike and mischievous, someone who insisted that history shouldn't be interfered with, but who consistently broke all the rules ...

Behind the scenes, the production team decided to break all the rules too. Ill health was preventing Hartnell playing the part, tensions were fraught on set and those in control of the series knew that something had to change. And what better way to keep Doctor Who alive than change the actor who played the Doctor and build it into the grammar of the series. And this is it. This is where is all happens. In the last episode - especially animated for this release - almost without warning, Hartnell's Doctor announces those famous words before rushing back to his ship. It's far from being all over.

In retrospect, never a truer word has been spoken. Watched by his companions, the Doctor collapses in the TARDIS and starts to change. And it seems not a moment too soon ...
