Dear Tom,

Hope you're well.

Tom, cast your mind back to Autumn 1974, and you, Liz, Ian and co are filming the location shots for 'Revenge of the Cybermen' in the caves at Wookey Hole in Somerset...

Do you recall anything strange happening whilst you were filming in the caves?

I've just finished reading Liz Sladen's marvellous autobiography, and she mentions some weird things that happened during filming - a page of script suddenly disappearing, lighting equipment failing, etc.

I'd love to hear your memories of the location.

Dear Graeme,

The important incident was the narrow escape Lis had from drifting down into a bottomless underwater cave. She describes it in her book. Her life was saved by her devoted stuntman, Terry Walsh, who anticipated the possibility.

My memories of being below ground are not cheerful ones.
