"Silver Nemesis" is to the 25th anniversary of "Doctor Who" what "The Five Doctors" and "The Three Doctors" were to the 20th and 10th, with the notable exception that, unlike those two, this one isn't at all special.

The story centers around a woman from centuries ago, the Cybermen from the future (more or less), and Ace and the Doctor in the present. There's also some neo-Nazis thrown in and lotsa gold, cause the Cybermen are as allergic to it as modern kids are to peanuts. The Cybermen, the woman and the neo-Nazis are all trying to get their hands on a statue made by Rassilon to protect Gallifrey and... zzzz...

*offscreen poke with stick*

Hmmm? Hmph?! Oh, sorry. Yeah, this is a pretty boring story, really. There's not much to recommend it, except that it is the start of the darker turn for the 7th Doctor. That alone makes it worth watching, plus it's always fun to see the Cybermen before they turned into weird alternate universe versions of themselves, never to be seen again apparently.

There's quite a bit to recommend the DVD, however, including commentary, some behind-the-scenes stuff, and, well, it's the 7th Doctor and Ace! That alone makes it worth buying. :)
