The Doctor

The TARDIS arrives in the future, on the planet Telos, where the Doctor and his companions meet an Earth archaeological expedition, led by Professor Parry, and financed by Kaftan and Klieg from the Brotherhood of Logicians. The party are excavating the lost Tomb of the Cybermen, the site that the last of the race of metallic giants are believed to be buried in. Klieg is deranged, and plans world domination; he revives the Cybermen, hoping to utilise them in his plans. The tomb is actually a trap, and meant to provide the Cybermen with new and intelligent victims ready for Cyber-conversion. The party escapes the tomb, but are attacked by Cybermats - small metallic killers that home in on their brainwaves. The Doctor jams the Cybermats by using a power loop; meanwhile Kaftan and Klieg attempt to force the Cybermen to help them, but instead are killed. The Doctor refreezes the Cybermen in their tombs, but the Cybercontroller escapes and comes after them. Kaftan's giant servant, Toberman, has had his arms converted into those of a Cyberman, and he attacks the Cybercontroller, while the Doctor and the others escape. Toberman seals the tomb forever, but is electrocuted in the attempt.
