Doctor Who: The Moonbase

PodKast with Handlebars

With the news of a Doctor Who and Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover series from IDW, we decided to have a look in depth at the Cybermen and how we felt they had been handled by various producers over the years.

Referencing everything from Tenth Planet to Earthshock, Rise of the Cybermen to Closing Time, we attempt to establish where the Cybermen have gone wrong – if at all.

After all, the Borg could be described as being “Cybermen done right” – they aren’t basic storm troopers and have a fascinating, developed back story, something largely ignored in the case of Cybermen.
