Cybermen 1 (2006) Inks by SteveAndrew Cybermen 1 (2006) Inks by SteveAndrew
A few years ago, I had a friend who had a kid who was really into Dr Who - out of nowhere he drew me a sweet picture of a Dalek. So in return, I knocked up this picture of the new-series Cybermen as a present. (Sneakily swiping a copy before I handed it over...)

Great fun to draw, but the Cyber-Leader's arms are rather short now I think of it.

Update: I've now made a couple of minor changes as this image seemed to be a bit more popular than I had originally thought it would be. I've made the front Cyberman's arms longer and knocked back the rear ones to a lighter grey. Also the image is bigger, if any colourists out there want to have a go colouring it in.

Preliminary sketch here: [link]

After seeing the episode where the Cybermen fight the Daleks, I can't take them seriously any more.

Admittedly, it would be badass to have a small personal army of those guys or have armor like them. Their weapons need a major upgrade though...

Yeah, it's a shame - since they were reintroduced in Tennant's first season, I don't think there's been a decent Cybermen story. They were always my favourite DW enemy when I was a kid, especially in the 80s. ("Excellent!")

It's very telling that the best Cybermen moment in the new series was with the disembodied head under Stonehenge.

I do love the current design though, just wish someone would write a good story for them.

After reading this comment, I gotta ask--we you satisfied with Night in Silver?

To be honest, I never really understood the negativity towards this story. The redesign was great (with some nice call-backs to the 60s) and it was a nice, relatively simple base-under-siege plot. True, I hated the kids - there was no reason at all for them to be there. It wasn't perfect by any means, but certainly not the worst Cybermen story of the new series. It did the job it set out to do.

Quite a few stories from season 7b owed a lot to the style of some classic stories. For example: Hide and Crimson Horror wouldn't have looked out of place as Hinchcliffe / Baker tales. Similarly, Nightmare In Silver and Cold War had overtones of the Troughton years.

Agreed. And aside from those dang kids, I consider Nightmare to be one of the two best stories of the season. (The other being A Town Called Mercy.)

I saw an episode with them from the 2nd Doctor. It was so retro seeing them like that, but ugh the voices could've cut glass. Still, Tomb of the Cybermen was pretty cool. I need to watch more of the older series.

Indeed, they need a good story. I almost take pity on them. They're more written off then the Daleks. They should have the 11th go to another Cybermen planet where a REAL Cyber King is active.
