Storyline

All of Dr Lauren Anderson's patients suffer from either a permanent brain injury or an incurable brain disease. So when she agrees to Thomas Mordley testing his new experimental drug Cyberon on her patients she expects there to be some benefits for them but no significant improvement in their condition. However, Cyberon is different. Mordley knows that he has created a wonder drug and that it will revolutionize medicine, it may even revolutionize the world. What Morley does not realize is that Cyberon has its own plan and there may well be nothing he can do to stop that plan. Written by Mark_a_Wood <markawood@hotmail.co.uk>

The best standalone Doctor Who spin-off yet!
3 July 2001 | by filmnut1See all my reviews

I have been a fan of the independent British Doctor Who spin-off movies since 1995's Shakedown and CYBERON is quite possible the best yet. But what makes this different is that it features no cast members or characters from Doctor Who. Although it does feature the Cybermen, not mentioned by name, they are barely glimpsed and could be any alien race.

This is first and foremost good sci-fi drama. They don't try to stretch the budget unrealistically and so virtually all the limited f/x work is good quality and doesn't take over the story. What we have is a story of two doctors who work at a psychiatric hospital testing an experimental drug, which is believed to take human evolution to the next step but is in fact being used by aliens to gain control of the population. It may hardly be an original concept but it works. There are two principle characters who play off of each other well - one is an American actor (this also creates the feeling of higher production values) - played by Jo Castleton and PJ Ochlan, and they deserve full credit for making this one of the best films of 2001.
