Meanwhile, a lone Cyberman (Cyberperson?) is revived on Telos... only for it to go randomly berserk for no reason and destroy things. Apparently, this is happening to all the Cybermen in stasis, but we're never told why in this story.[[note]]Or any story. It's ''implied'' to be the work of the Cryons, maybe, but never stated outright.[[/note]] Anyway, the TARDIS arrives on Telos, this time turning into a massive ornamental gate that everyone walks through... but they're in the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E1TheTombOfTheCybermen Tombs of the Cybermen]][[note]]Which look nothing like it used to, incidentally.[[/note]] rather than Cyber Control because the Doctor decided to fudge the coordinates. As everyone goes up to Cyber Control, another random Cyberman breaks out of his cryo-freeze chamber and goes berserk because why the f$¢k not? Lytton, Griffiths and Peri escape--only to nearly get killed by ''another'' rogue Cyberman because... well just because it's been a while since something ''really'' contrived happened. Luckily, they're saved by the Cryons! Peri goes off to get out of the way with one Cryon while another Cryon meets with Lytton and Griffiths. As it turns out, Lytton is really working for the Cryons in their struggle to destroy the Cybermen and prevent them from using B&S' captured time machine. Griffiths joins in, mostly thanks to the fact that the Cryons are filthy rich and offer him £2 Million in diamonds. The two then find B&S, and it is revealed that the pair of criminals are actually [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul failed Cyber-conversions]], left with robot arms and legs.

Predictably, the Doctor and Flast come up with a plan in order to make sure everything on Telos gets [[{{SCTV}} blowed up real good]]--but it seems that Flast cannot leave the room, as Cryons cannot survive at room temperature. But hey, [[HeroicSacrifice she's willing to warm up the explosives]] to the point where they'll automatically explode. The Doctor uses a small amount of the explosive to kill off the Cyberman guard, then just leaves Flast to await her death after thanking her for the help she provided .(Though she would have died anyway since she can't leave the room and was ready to sacrifice her life to stop the Cybermen.)

Season 22 was an oddity for ''Doctor Who''. Beginning with this serial and continuing for the remainder of Season 22, episodes were 45 minutes in length (as opposed to previous episodes which were 25 minutes long), leading to many two-parters and one three-parter. This format would return 20 years later when the series resumed in 2005 with [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E1Rose "Rose"]].
