    Fraid to say after all the hype I wasn't impressed. It was impressively mounted and Dervla Kirwin was an effective baddie but the rise of the Cyber King smacked on the ridiculousness of Wild Wild West and the finale involving a short beam of energy from Tennant was simplistic given alll the build up. Morrissey started out chewing the scenary at every opportunity but did eventually begin to show a more emotional side.

    Is it being repeated anywhere? Only we got back late from Sonny Boy's last night (there was an accident on the A46 which meant they closed the road and sent us all ten miles around the houses) and missed it.

    BBC3 will probably repeat it 24/7 for the next six months!

    I always thought the Cybermen were second only to the Daleks in terms of fear but their threat seems to have been diminished. They need to get to you now to do harm. I'm sure they had a weapon originally. Wasn't it something on their chests?

    In my younger day I used to think of them having something akin to a Piano Accordion with which they would fire.

    Cybermen - isn't that a bit sexist for our enlightened times? What about the Cyberladies and Cybertransexuals?

    Enjoyed it a lot more than the one last Christmas.

    David Morrissey was the essence of a Victorian eccentric and Dervla Kirwan was an icy treat. Anything that concludes with a giant robot firing lasers at London can only be a good thing in my book

    Not sure if they have any genital arrangements. Anyway man is just short for woman isn't it?

    I enjoyed it - not perfect but a fun piece of escapist holiday entertainment.
