Return To Telos
Tom Baker (The Doctor), Louise Jameson (Leela), John Leeson (K9), Frazer Hines (Jamie), Michael Cochrane (Geralk), Bernard Holley (Peter Haydon), Veronica Roberts (Relly), Nicholas Briggs (the Cybermen)
The Doctor reveals to Leela that they’re heading for the planet Telos. And K9 has new masters…
On Telos, in the past, the Second Doctor and Jamie are exploring the ‘tomb of the Cybermen’.
Meanwhile, the Cyber-Controller and Cyber-Planner consolidate their plans. Spare parts from Krelos are being used to construct a mighty Cyber army. The Doctor must be captured.
Out of control, the TARDIS tumbles down a chasm and the Doctor and Leela find themselves caught up in full-scale planetary invasion.

- Cybermats are adaptable, able to have stealth capabilities or venom. One is lodged in K9’s brain.
- The “TT capsule proximity alert” registers a past version of the TARDIS nearby.
- The Doctor changes his mind about interfering in the fate of Krelos, since the Cybermen used K9 and the TARDIS to originally interfere in time and destroy Krelos.
- The Doctor has a device to trace Cyber-TECHNOLOGY moving through the computer systems of the houses of Krelos, which are all interlinked.
- Telos is in the neighbouring system to Krelos.
- Geralk says the Cybermen were “the Scourge of the Galaxy” once.
- Cyber particles are a kind of living metal.
- The Cybermen carry cyber-conversion technology, able to convert with a touch.
- The Cyber time squad, from a future where the Cybermen have mastered time travel, have the same appearance and voice as the Cybermen on Telos. They try to kill the Second Doctor to remove the Fourth from the timelines, but stop to insure their plan works in the future.
- Because the cyber-particles are removed from Jamie before they can infect the TARDIS, K9 is never under Cyber-control and Krelos is never invaded.
