REVENGE OF THE CYBERMEN

Director: Michael E Briant Producer: Philip Hinchcliffe Broadcast: 19 April – 10 May 1975

For the subterranean sequences on planet Solos in 1972’s The Mutants, director Christopher Barry had taken his crew to Chislehurst Caves in Kent, filming there for three days in February that year. But for the underground environs of Voga, the planet of gold, in Revenge of the Cybermen, director Michael E Briant required a greater variety of settings and was keen to use the different chambers at Wookey Hole Caves near Wells in Somerset (detailed on Briant’s crew map, below right). Here he would shoot various action sequences depicting the involvement of the Doctor (Tom Baker), Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) and Harry Sullivan (Ian Marter) in a civil war between opposing ‘Hawk’ and ‘Dove’ factions of the indigenous Vogans, as well as their battle against Cybermen determined to destroy the planet.

About Doctor Who Magazine

In its early days, Doctor Who was recorded on cumbersome cameras tethered to claustrophobic and often inadequate studios. The show rarely escaped these confines in the 1960s, but as technology improved, producers and directors became more adventurous. Location shooting has helped to create some of the most memorable episodes in the series’ long history. In this unique publication, new features, exclusive interviews and rare images tell the story of those episodes and the people who made them happen.
