    Booboo- is there a Cyberman boxset with all the episodes or at least the classic ones like the Sontaron boxset with all the classic episodes that they appeared in?

      I also think The Chase and Remberance Of The Daleks are my Favourite Classic Dalek Stories, but i cant decide which comes First

      July 15th, 2013 - 8:29pm

      I agree with you on Remembrance Of The Daleks but im not to bothered with The Chase. If i had to pick another Favourite Classic Dalek Story i would pick Ressurection Of The Daleks

      frontier in space is the best dalek story

    It’s odd that this one is the only set not to feature the monsters first and most recent appearance.

      I’m guessing it’s because of the popularity of the Tenth Doctor.

    • Liason Ice

      July 14th, 2013 - 4:47am

      It’s probably because the Tenth Planet only just got released and A Nightmare in Silver isn’t a 2 parter

    • josh smith

      July 14th, 2013 - 8:22am

      they dont want to put an animated story. tomb is the first cyberman story that has all its episdoes

    • Dalek The Supreme

      July 15th, 2013 - 6:15pm

      Asylum of the Daleks isn’t a two parter and they added it to the Dalek one. I say it’s because many people like the Tenth Doctor.

      not in age but casual buyer who walks into HMV and sees these Doctor Who DVD’s who maybe hasn’t bought many of any before.

      I know right, daleks were just on the news because a new maze shaped like a dalek has opened and it was so cheesy, it made me cringe, the reporter got inside the daleks and started doing a dalek voice, it actually made me a little bit embarrassed because I was watching with my family and now they think doctor who is really childish 😡

    • Dalek The Supreme

      July 12th, 2013 - 7:59pm

      Josh Smith, some of the stories seem kind of dark for 5-8 year olds, especially A Good Man Goes To War, A Town Called Mercy, and The Name of the Doctor.

    • josh smith

      July 12th, 2013 - 8:35pm

      the name of the doctor was in my opion the wors series finalie

      i loved the series 3 and 2 finalie

    • auton101

      July 12th, 2013 - 8:46pm

      Doctor who is more childish than it used to be, more so in steven moffat’s stories. But i still think a tomb cybermen would have worked better.

    • The Living Shadow

      July 12th, 2013 - 9:17pm

      … Not to mention how dark TCH was

    • Dalek The Supreme

      July 12th, 2013 - 11:00pm

      The Eleventh Hour, The Beast Below, Amy’s Choice, The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang, A Good Man Goes To War, The Girl Who Waited, The God Complex, Asylum of the Daleks, A Town Called Mercy, and The Snowmen all take a look at the Doctor, the main character and hero of the show, being a darker, more manipulating character, and in the cases of Amy’s Choice, The Girl Who Waited, The God Complex, and A Town Called Mercy, almost evil.

      July 13th, 2013 - 8:26am

      my problem is though that perwees worst story is still way better than matts best.

      spearhead form space vrs hide

    • auton101

      July 13th, 2013 - 10:28am

      spearhead from space is one of the best stories that was made. It was all filmed on location, the Autons are a fantastic enemy. To be fare it was a great introduction to such a brilliant doctor.

    • josh smith

      July 13th, 2013 - 2:50pm

      but its very boring. nothing happens until the last episode

    • Dalek The Supreme

      July 13th, 2013 - 3:28pm

      I agree with Auton on Spearhead From Space, but my all-time favorite story is The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang. No offense, but I find it hard to comprehend you find Hide better than the above story, or most of Smith’s run.

    • josh smith

      July 14th, 2013 - 8:23am

      i dont know either but hide clicks with me. i love it. and i love clara

    • auton101

      July 14th, 2013 - 10:19am

      I enjoy spearhead from space and every other classic story because there is so much detail in the stories because of the length. That’s why new who stories will never be as good.

    • josh smith

      July 14th, 2013 - 10:21am

      not just that but the new who is boring because every episode is linked. if you dont like the story arc its very har t enjoy any stories however with the classic every serial is its own and if youl ike one and odnt like the other its not long to wait until another one.

    • Dalek the Supreme

      July 13th, 2013 - 5:48am

      I actually agree with Josh Smith on Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel, but not because of how Rose dressed, no matter how pretty or talented the actress, I still dislike the character. I like the dark feel to it, kind of like Spare Parts as a Doctor Who episode. The only think I don’t like is that they try to replace the original Mondasian Cybermen.

    • josh smith

      July 13th, 2013 - 8:27am

      yh but i remember when i saw the episode i screamed because i didnt think cybermen would come back.

      I always like it when compaions are good looking. Davis tennent was very much in love with rose

    Really? The Parallel Cybermen and the Mondas Cybermen in the same box set. It might make sense if it contained more serials, but for just two, they really should be the same enemies.

      yes and no. Yes they are both cybermen, only one set were created by a mad man in a parallel universe and the other set were a form of humans from earths twin planet who modified themselves to survive. Is that better?

      You are incorrect they are totally different cybermen, they only started being mondas cybermen after “the next doctor”.

      if i didn’t have all the current box sets i may have bought this. i think they should just be classic, as you can get the full box sets, and i wouldn’t want to duplicate.

    July 12th, 2013 - 3:28pm

    Of course they’d put the new series cyberman design on the cover. It’s never the 20th century designs is it? Also, the text on the spine is facing the wrong way 🙁 Not getting it anyway, I’m just being critical of it’s artistic design, as dvd cover’s are something I personally like to design 🙂

      Actually that’s the Second Doctor’s TARDIS, which had the St Johns sign on the other side of the door. So it is actually correct

    • Some bloke

      July 12th, 2013 - 5:04pm

      oddly TheMysteryLiker is right, well partially. In the end of evil of the daleks and in the abominable snowmen, the ‘Pull to open’ sign was on the right Tardis doors, but unfortunately not in any of troughtons cyberman stories, so really it is wrong.
