We do our third episode about Classic Who, the Tomb of the Cybermen. Because the Cybermen buried themselves in Egyptian-style, trap-filled caves.
Welcome to Episode 60 covering Classic Who Season 5 episodes 1-4: The Tomb of the Cybermen.
This is the one where the Doctor discovers Cybercicles, the worst flavor of popsicle ever.
The Doctor, Jamie, and Victoria land on a planet and meet an expedition trying to find the ancient tomb of the Cybermen. Inexplicably, he agrees to help the expedition. After two people die, they decide to abandon the mission, but something strange is happening. The spaceship has been sabotaged and Klieg insists on continuing the search.
They find the cybermen frozen in stasis and Klieg thaws and wakes them so they can combine forces with the Brotherhood of Logicians. The Cybermen have…. different plans. They will alter the humans to make a new race of Cybermen to rule the Earth.
After some fighting, and shooting, and jiggery pokery, the Doctor manages to re-seal the Tomb of the Cybermen, but not before just about everyone from the expedition dies.

Difference between first and second Doctor. All that jibberty jabberty but the first Doctor would of said “bet you didn’t think of that hmmm.”
It’s a Cybermat. What’s a Cybermat? One of those.
