The Doctor’s encounter with the Cybermen comes to a conclusion in the second part of this story.
As the Cybermen take control of London and start converting the populace Jackie falls under Lumic�s control and The Doctor, Rose and Mickey are reduced to fugitives in a world of terror.
With mankind facing the Ulimate Upgrade all hope rests with a desperate attack on the Cyberfactory. But will they all survive?
Actor Noel Clarke recently spoke to BBC Programme Information about the challenges facing Mickey in this story.
“Mickey has to step up to the plate and become a man,so some of the challenges he faces aren�t just the monsters that he comes across but also his own fear really” Noel explains.
“I think a lot of things that he�s involved in [with the Doctor and Rose] help him come to terms with his own uncertainties and really change him.”
