The Cybermen have been around for a long time! Even in the modern era of Doctor Who, the metal giants from Mondas have taken many forms, and have spawned in multiple universes. When the Tenth Doctor first met them in the 2006 story ‘Rise of the Cybermen,’ they had been created on a parallel world, a branded ‘human upgrade’ instigated by the deranged John Lumic.
However, since then, the New Who Doctors have encountered the ‘real universe’ versions of these cyborgs in multiple times and places. The Twelfth Doctor even met the original Mondasians, which hadn’t been seen since the 1966 story ‘The Tenth Planet.’
