The music on this Mini-CD Album is taken from the 1966 Dr Who Episode ‘The Tenth Planet’. It was not only the last episode to feature the first Doctor, William Hartnell before he regenerates, but also the first to feature the Cybermen. Limited to 2000 copies. Includes musical scores by Wally Stott (Scott Walker). “ It is late September 1966 and the Tardis travels 20 years into Earth’s future to 1986 as Zeus 4, an earth spaceship is being mysteriously pulled off it’s course between Mars and Venus by the influence of a rough ‘Tenth Planet’ which has drifted into our solar system. Events are being monitored at ‘Snowcap’ Antarctic Space Tracking Station where the Tardis crew take shelter having landed in the icy, snow driven wastes outside. This CD re-establishes the importance of the tracking music as it creates the tension and heightens the claustrophobic atmosphere as the first invading Cybermen arrive at the Outpost. They have travelled from Mondas in Cyberships to carry out their objectives and convert the humans into their own kind. As the story moves towards the first climax where Mondas and the Cybermen are destroyed we are also witnessing the story’s steady build up to the famous ‘regeneration’ of the Doctor where William Hartnell leaves the title role and transforms from an dying figure into the younger, rejuvenated Patrick Troughton. The Time Lord’s success at prolonging life using ‘natural’ forces makes the failure of the Cybermen more dramatic. Writers Gerry Davis and Dr Kit Pedlar, a medical researcher at London University, had co-created The Cybermen whose popularity in this, their first story, went on to rival that of the Daleks and ensured their return in a number of Dr. Who adventures. They served to warn us of the terrible price they had paid in their quest for power and immortality. Humanoid in form they tried to cheat death by rebuilding their bodies to improve efficiency and eradicate illness. They became more machine than flesh presenting soul-less parodies of ourselves. The original Cybermen story 34 years on still has the power to terrify as today’s medical science puts into reach the real possibility of following their footsteps”.
