I must admit i was expecting a bit more from the first cyberman adventure. I liked the artic base and the astronaunts (ironic that they considered there should be black astronauts in 2000 but that they still referred to him as a negro). I liked the old and sick pre-regeneration doctor and the way Polly and Ben tried to compensate for him. It seemed like a good start but then it all kinda fell apart. The arrival of the other planet and the cyberman's lack of a plan seemed rather silly. Of course the biggest problem was the sexism in this story. Polly, being a woman, wasn't considered a big enough threat to even be locked up with the Doctor and Ben and all she had to do was make cups of tea and coffee!!! Which she got yelled at for doing wrong! It's only a few years away from Zoe defeating the entire invasion fleet and sending missles into orbit with the power of her brains! But what a big difference those few years make. I love Polly and Anneke Wills but this was just too sad.
