I never like to make predicitons
24 January 2011 | by Glen_ChapmanSee all my reviews

Watching this last installment is a little like a good Chinese meal. Great while you are eating it, but after a little while you see how little you actually got.

The plot takes a real hammering. First we have the Controller order all Cybermen into the chambers, but remains behind, just in time to kill Klieg (again) The controller himself has some serious wrestling moves pulled by Toberman who throws him around like a rag doll, but who magically comes to life at the required time to cause more furrowed brows Then there is the shoring timber left outside the control room. We see everyone find and enter the room, nobody was carrying timber. Period Now with all that you would think it is a pretty sucky end to an interesting idea. Funny thing it is not. The story comes together, the Doctor is at his best, and we are left with a great open ended finale that leaves us wondering when will the Cybermen will turn up again
