Episode Four contact sheet
The Cybermen march across the Moon's surface.
They're heading for the Moonbase.
Their second invasion has begun.
Walking on the Moon
Inside, the Doctor is worried - can the Cybermen just march in?
The Cybermen get in touch over the radio...
to insist that 'Resistance is Useless.'
Frantically, the Moonbase team try to get in touch with Earth...
... but they're having trouble getting through.
The signal is simply being jammed.
The Doctor realises...
... that the Cybermen are destroying the aerial.
In theory, all the humans have to do is to wait for rescue from Earth.
But the Doctor thinks the Cybermen know the rescue ship is coming.
The Doctor is correct. The Cybermen have spotted the craft.
On the surface, they are contacting one of their controlled humans.
Dr Evans is once more acting under Cyber-control.
Evans comes around in the sickbay...
... attacks an attendant...
... and leaves him unconscious.
In the control room, they're working flat out to keep the Gratitron working.
Benoit is tuning in the radio to the Cybermen's communications.
Back in sickbay, Dr Evans picks up a cybergun...
... and is ordered to the Gravitron chamber.
In the control room, they're now short-staffed and tired.
Ben learns how to operate some controls.
Menawhile, Dr Evans slips into the Gravitron chamber.
Evans overpowers the man on duty, and takes over.
Out in the control room, no-one has noticed - they've just seen the ship from Earth.
The Doctor is still worried.
The ship gets nearer to the Moonbase...
... then they watch, horrified, as it's suddenly flung out towards the Sun.
There's nothing that can be done for the doomed crew.
The Moonbase crew can't understand how it was done.
Then the Doctor points out to them that it must have been caused by the Gravitron.
Hobson realises who's in Gravitron chamber ...
Yes, it's Evans.
Back in the medical bay, the remaining victims are also coming back under cyber-control.
Ben and Jamie are working quickly to barricade them in.
Evans continues his tasks in the Gravitron chamber.
Hobson tries to reason with him, in vain.
Evans is manipulating the Earth's weather - he's now about to cause floods across Europe.
The Cybermen order the humans to surrender.
Hobson tells them they won't get back into the base.
'We are in it already.' the Cyberman replies. There is a massive explosion...
... and air rushes out of the Moonbase.
The Cybermen have punctured the dome.
The humans rush for oxygen masks.
Frantically, Hobson and Benoit grab a plastic tray.
They seal the puncture with the tray...
... and the atmosphere starts to return to normal.
Since Evans is unconscious, they can regain control of the Gravitron.
Another cybership lands.
The Cybermen issue their threat.
The humans must surrender to the Cybermen or they'll be attacked again.
The Cybermen fire their gun at the dome...
... but the gun's blast is deflected.
The Doctor realises the Gravitron has deflected the blast.
The Cybermen start to march on the dome again.
The Doctor and Hobson hurriedly work to re-align the Gravitron, pointing it down at the Moon's surface.
The Doctor has realised that the Cybermen themselves are affected by the gravitron.
When the Gravitron is repositioned, the Cybermen and their ships are flung off into space.
As the Moonbase crew celebrates...
... the Doctor, Ben, Polly and Jamie slip away.
The four travellers reach the TARDIS.
Polly notices a shooting light in the sky - is it the last of the Cybermen?
The TARDIS dematerialises...
... and outside the base, the lunar landscape is now empty.
The TARDIS is in perfect flight - but the Doctor has summoned up a worrying vision of the future. It is a giant claw...
