This insect-like birth is disturbing, but it's also a marvel of special effects, no small feat for a show known for its shoestring budget and less than convincing visuals. The black and white broadcast is particularly suited to the Cybermen, their metal casing and empty eyes appearing much more sinister in the stark contrast.
These early tales from the Doctor's storied history are the perfect companion for a Summer Challenge focused on space.
