Doctor Who

Rise of the Cybermen (1) - S2-E8

Question: This and the next episode credits John Lumic with the creation of the Cybermen. However, in "The World and Time", it appears the Master creates the Cybermen. Which is the correct line?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: This episode takes place on an alternate Earth. This is where this version of the Cybermen were created. However the Cybermen first debuted in 1966 in the episode "The Tenth Planet". Originating from the planet Mondas. So both are true. The Master's Mondasian Cybermen, and Lumic's Cybus Cybermen.

MasterOfAll

In classic There were Cybermen from this universe which were people whose bodies were failing so they used spare parts to become Cybermen they came from places like Mondas it was destroyed so they went to some other plants to live. The new Doctor Who rise of the Cybermen takes place in an alternative universe where people's brains were put in Cybermen suits these Cybermen ended up coming through to are universe. Matt Smith's last season the Cybermen were mentioned to being from this universe. The Cybermen the master used in the world and time - the master had people's Souls uploaded in gallifreyan technology and then she downloaded them into Cybermen suits. So you have original Cybermen/ alternative universe Cybermen/ back to original Cybermen/ Then Masters Cybermen/ and then Cybermen from Peter Capaldi's episodes to do with the original.

The original Cybermen planet was destroyed but they were seen on other planets.

Quotes

Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.

Trivia

"Torchwood" is an anagram for Doctor Who. Russell T Davies came up with it during the filming of Series 1 to label the tapes in order to prevent theft and potential leakage, and decided to use the name in the show proper.
