‘Doctor Who’ 60th Anniversary Marathon – ‘The Invasion’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

Here’s another one of my favourite ‘Doctor Who’ stories from the Patrick Troughton era! 🙂 This is ‘The Invasion’, an epic eight-part story where Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor, Frazer Hines as Jamie and Wendy Padbury as Zoe face the Cybermen again. They also confront Kevin Stoney as the villainous Tobias Vaughn and they’re joined by Nicholas Courtney, who is promoted as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and is the leader of U.N.I.T., a new taskforce tackling alien invasions of Earth. Two missing episodes of ‘The Invasion’ have been animated for DVD. ‘The Invasion’ is currently available to check out on DVD and on Britbox.

Please feel free to check out, read and comment on my current review for ‘The Invasion’. I’ve also reviewed the Target novelization/audiobook ‘Doctor Who – The Invasion’ by Ian Marter, read by David Troughton with Nicholas Briggs as the voices of the Cybermen.


Bye for now!

Tim. 🙂
