Summary: When Clara is discovered by the children she’s babysitting, the Docto takes them to Webley’s World of Wonders, an outer space amusement park The owner has remains of the Cybermen and a midget named Porridge. But they discover the Cybermen are not scrapped remains. They are very much alive and have taken the children hostage. They infect the Doctor with Cyber-mites, nanites that threaten to turn him over to their side.

Review: This was excellent! Seeing the Doctor battle himself was pretty cool. Clara got a chance to shine here. I loved how she handled the soldiers The only problem was the kids were pretty annoying.

Overall Review: 9/10

Continuity: The Cybermen coming out of their confinement is reminiscent of “Earthshock”. Mr. Clever sees several of the Doctor’s past regenerations.
