037: The Tomb of the Cybermen

(First watched 2014-07-09, -10, -08-14, -15) Hey, it's nice to see some actual moving film footage again.

The Doctor seems to be his own worst enemy here. On the one hand he's like "The Cybermen are super awful and the evil here should remain buried forever!" but on the other hand he's the one helping the archaeological team to bypass tomb security and showing them the system by which the internal machinery operates.

I like how the hatch-opening problem was solved two different ways. The Doctor used knowledge of mathematics to figure out the proper pattern of lever pulls, while later the engineers needing to follow partially disassembled the panel to examine the circuitry attached to the levers. It struck me as... good game design, allowing different paths for progression.

The Doctor pretending to go along with the villain's plain in such an overblown manner was great. A scene I could see showing up nearly unchanged in a Matt Smith episode.
