Around this time, an Earth expedition led by Professor Parry was trying to uncover the lost tombs of the Cybermen on Telos. There they discovered that the Cybermen, contrary to popular belief, had not gone extinct, but instead gone into frozen hibernation in their huge underground tombs. One of the members of that expedition, Eric Klieg along with his accomplice Kaftan, aimed to use the Cybermen's strength, coupled with their intelligence from the Brotherhood of Logicians would transform the Earth Empire into a new power. His plan fell apart and eventually the tombs were sealed shut, supposedly forever. (TV: The Tomb of the Cybermen)

The 25th century was notable for hosting the life of Darzil Carlisle, initally described by the Fifth Doctor as one of the most eminent advocates for peace in human history. Born outside Olympus Mons on Mars in 2414, Darzil Carlisle was later relocated to an orphanage in Finchley, north London, at the age of three following a freak airlock accident which killed his parents. In the 2430s, the 17 year old Darzil Carlisle earned a scholarship to the Phobos Academy of Music, proceeding to study for three years before, as quoted by the Doctor, "stumbling into a glorious career as a peace negociator", in which he was apparently responsible for ending 36 wars. However, the Doctor, following an encounter with an older Darzil Carlisle in the later period of the century, would realise that Darzil's career was actually the result of him having taken the credit for actions that he would perform in his personal future.
