  • A race of cyborgs first appearing in the serial The Tenth Planet, which was the last to feature the First Doctor (William Hartnell). Cybermen originated Earth's twin planet Mondas as an attempt by Dr Kit Pedler to prolong life.

    In New Who, they were created by John Lumic on Earth in a parallel universe. They also crossed into our universe where they proceeded to trash talk some daleks.
