Anniversary Of The Cybermen

Fifty years today! Their golden anniversary!

What? Oh.

Anyway, as I’ve mentioned before, the Cybermen are great creepy identity-destroying body horror monsters - for kids! Daleks reign supreme but it’s the Cybermen that give me the chills. Notice how Asylum Of The Daleks has them converting people...

As the Daleks are the opposite of the Doctor’s tolerance and reluctance to use violence, the Cybermen are the opposite of his individualism and warmth.

Want to bring them into a game? Always a good excuse to use a different design!

The totally-impractical-on-TV Flood Cybermen perhaps...

And maybe to mess with expectations, bring in Kroton!
