Yeah, me too. :) I'll have to re-watch it to decide whether I loved it, but it was definitely a good'n. Matt Smith was excellent as 'scarier CyberDoctor'. :D Oh, and Warwick Davis was great.

Good episode. Not as good as the lastepisode, The Crimson Horror, or indeed Gaiman's previous story, The Doctor's Wife, but pretty damn good all the same.

I have to agree with Q I thought drs wife was far better and I much preferred crimson horror to this one. As I said before it was good but just seemed to lack something and was predictable in parts, even with the added distraction of trying to remember tamzin outhwaite's name, downside of watching on the iPad can't pull up imdb while watching!
Some obvious things you accept eg children will end up in danger, dr will save the day etc.
But
Spoiler: show
warrick Davies turning out to be either the emperor/the man responsible for destroying planets or a cyber spy until tamzin called him aside then he obv wasn't the spy and trying to make it a ta-dah moment at the end
Also as soon as the cyber dr was shown in the drs brain with all the neural links I knew the dr was going to overload them :? , although I admit I thought it was going to be by giving them access to memories of all the planets he'd seen or something similar.

Plus the introduction of the kids just somehow feels like CBBC saying "please can we have another dr who spin off to replace Sarah Jane adventures" which personally I think would be a very bad thing because I'd much rather see a madam vastra spin off.

I think that it was more an attempt at regaining the younger viewers with creating relatable characters
than a plea to make another children's spin-off

I really enjoyed that one and they also answered my question of why gold isn't poisonous to Cybermen anymore. :D (The question was probably answered elsewhere but I missed it.)
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Nobody got that stuff about cleaning fluid?! :?

Okay. Deep breath...

And start.

In The Moonbase, Polly, Ben, and Jamie, imprisoned in a medical bay by the Cybermen, decide to try and fight back. Jamie suggests that back in his day, witches were sprinkled with holy water. Polly, who's been doing her nails, hits upon the idea that, if nail varnish is a kind of plastic and can be removed with something like acetone, then maybe it could affect the Cybermen's own systems. They mix up stuff like benzene, ether, and acetone, put it into fire extinguishers and squirt guns, and christen it 'Cocktail Polly'. It kills the Cybermen rather effectively in the Moonbase, and on the lunar surface, although a spray wouldn't work, a thrown bottle does.

Thanks Q, I was wondering about that. I probably saw that episode when it was on TV originally and certainly didn't remember it. :)

Unfortunately, it's also one of the missing episodes. Episodes 2 and 4 are available, but 1 and 3 aren't, and 3 is where Cocktail Polly is used. It's effect on Cybermen is pretty startling, if the telesnaps are anything to go by. Here's the results of the first attack by Cocktail Polly...
