This *really* needs to be updated with the 12th Doctor!
As an FYI, my review will be late for the finale as I’ll be away…
I’d love to see this updated to include more recent clips, but it’s pretty nice as-is:
Fan made and fantastic!
I just finished watching the classic 2nd Doctor story The Tomb of the Cybermen. Of course the Doctor and his companions (Victoria and Jamie) wind up in a dangerous place… The Tomb of the Cybermen, which isn’t as dead as one might hope.
The story of course has many issues, like the fact the Cybermen locked themselves in a freezer with “no way out” yet the walls seem to be made of plastic wrap.
Overall though, the story is well executed and quite brilliant. We are talking about a story from 1967, so keep that in mind. Yes, that does mean it’s in black and white, for all you NuWho fans out there. Although I remember the monsters being more impressive in my younger days. Perhaps because we didn’t have the special effects that we have now.
Up until some new episodes were discovered last year, this was the first serial involving Patrick Troughton which survived in its entirety.
I’d love to hear what you all thought of the episode!
Well, are you a Geocacher? I like to describe Geocachers as people who use multi million dollar satellites (read: hand-held GPS) to hunt for Tupperware (read: containers containing a log book and sometimes Dollar-Store tradables) in the woods (read: or anywhere else you can hide a container).
You can also put trackables out there, which you can watch from a page in your account (free) while it travels around the world. Got it? Now that you’re up to speed, you’ll probably want a police-box trackable, which looks a lot like a TARDIS:
They seem to be pretty difficult to find for sale, but you could always arrange to have a bunch minted… Oooooo now there’s a thought!
All right, if you’re able to travel you may also want to grab (read: search for and find) some caches. I’d posted about some geocaches before, but these are more spread out:
The Third Doctor – Oregon (currently archived, but they’re working on a new location)
The Seventh Doctor – Michigan (temporarily disabled because someone stole the container, but it will be back up soon)
The Tenth Doctor – New York (a Where-I-Go cache)
The 1960’s Film Version – Coming Soon
The Comic Relief Doctor – Coming Soon
According to the cache description for the 12th Doctor:
The Doctor’s twelfth incarnation is rather curmudgeonly at times but a loyal friend to those he serves with. While mysterious, he has built up his backstory and convinced many around him that he is actually from Earth. He tends to get emotional at times, much to the chagrin of his companions. He takes the name “Doctor” seriously as he travels through time and space. One of his most memorable (and tragic) adventures occurred on Earth during the great depression. The twelfth doctor does consider himself more a healer than any other incarnation. It seems that the TARDIS has repaired its chameleon circuit since it has yet to appear with this doctor… then again this incarnation claims to be divorced.
Since this cache was placed in 2011, I’m going to say that the cache owner was just completely making this up!
