The Strange Future World of 1986 (Defrosting "The Tenth Planet")

The Tenth Planet is a big deal in the Doctor Who universe — remembered for the first appearance of the Cybermen and William Hartnell's Doctor regenerating into Patrick Troughton. What it's not remembered for is its depiction of 1986, a world where space exploration is managed internationally, American generals are walking stereotypes, and the South Pole is considered a good place to store a world-destroying bomb. It's still a promising plot, but perhaps it could do with… an upgrade? Chris and Pete are here with some spare parts to help.
