Tardisode 4 Tardisode 6

Tardisode 5 was the fifth of the Tardisode series of mini-episode prologues to Doctor Who series 2. This Tardisode was a prelude to the episode, Rise of the Cybermen.

Synopsis Edit

A mission briefing from Gemini calls all Preacher agents into action. It describes Cybus Industries, John Lumic, the head of Cybus Industries, and his latest "upgrade" - the Cybermen. It also tells how thousands of people have gone missing. The briefing ends, and the laptop it was playing on is closed by Ricky Smith (Mickey's counterpart on the parallel Earth), who drives away in a van just as an advertisement for Cybus Industries is heard on the radio, announcing: "Coming soon, the ultimate upgrade"...

Cast Edit

Production crew Edit

Continuity Edit

  • This is a prelude to TV: Rise of the Cybermen.
  • This minisode features the very first appearance of the Preachers emblem- a spray-painted circle with a "P" drawn inside. The graffiti continues to appear long after the Preachers have completed their work and disbanded, even echoing into other universes. (TV: Captain Jack Harkness)
  • The unknown person referred to by the code name "Gemini" here is later revealed to be an alternate version of Pete Tyler. (TV: The Age of Steel)

Production notes Edit

  • Noel Clarke makes his second Tardisode appearance, this time as Ricky Smith. He was the only core cast member to appear in the webcasts.
