Notable Characteristics: Nicknamed the “Cosmic Hobo”, the Second Doctor was far more scruffy and childlike than his previous incarnation. The Doctor was clever and always a few steps ahead of his enemies, often calculating and manipulating people for the greater good, but with a tendency to act like a bumbling fool to trick others into underestimating him. He is noted for playing the recorder.

Notable Episode: The Tomb of the Cybermen was a four episode arc from Season Five. The TARDIS arrives on the planet Telos, where an Earth archaeological expedition is trying to uncover the lost tombs of the Cybermen. The tomb is revealed to be a trap to lure humans suitable for conversion.

Recipe: Cyber Tombs

1 box individually wrapped rectangular ice cream sandwiches (i.e. Kemps Family Classics Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches)
Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup
Silver sprinkles
Lots of freezer space.

Fill a bowl with Hershey’s syrup.
Unwrap sandwiches, but keep the paper handy. Dip one side of the sandwich (one of the cookies) in the chocolate syrup, making sure it coats the entire cookie.
Carefully place the sandwich back in the paper, keeping the syrup side up. Cover the syrup side in silver sprinkles, and place the sandwich in the freezer, sprinkle side up with the paper open.
The syrup should harden after 2-3 hours. Either serve immediately, or carefully re-wrap the sandwiches.
