Attack of the Cybermen

I985, and the Cybermen see a way to obliterate the Earth before it can destroy their home world of Mondas

Halley’s comet is aimed to collide with Earth. The Doctor returns to the ice tombs of Telos to thwart the plan. There he meets the Cryons.

Story background: 1985, written by Eric Saward and Paula More, produced by John Nathan-Turner. Notable for: The Doctor’s attempts to fix the TARDIS chameleon circuit see the ship appear as something other than a police box (an organ) for the first time. This story references a lot of previous Cybermen stories, chiefly The Tenth Planet, Tomb of the Cybermen and The Invasion.
