    Love the Timelord version of the Cybermen, such a great design. Hopefully Eaglemoss, Character Options and Big Chief Studios all decide to do it justice eventually.

    I love this Cyber design so much and controversially really liked this episode. Series 12 was a major step up from series 11 despite a few let down episodes

      It is a great design and yes, a great story too!

      I agree this design is so cool, it’s like the Master was really mocking the pomposity of the Timelords making his Cybermen look this way. A good episode too!
      I hope we get a figure of this one as well as Jodie’s new regular Cybermen.

      How did the Master kill the Time Lords in the first place if they wouldn’t stop regenerating?

      Maybe he converted them alive? A lot more gruesome and scary. Remember Bill we the Cyberman. Anger wasn’t a luxury she could have, Timelords are full of anger and perhaps He has taken away their ability to think for them self

      So now it’s just a walking puppet of hate for the master, to serve him

      Bobby how did none of the time lords killed in deadly assassin not regenerate?

      Being able to regenerate does not stop you from dying, but dying stops the ability to regenerate.

      Doesn’t really matter. The cybermasters can regenerate so presumably when he says he kept the bodies he means in some for of cryo suspension so they may not have been completely dead just suspended and unable to regenerate, so effectively dead until thawed.

      Dalek Z, that’s what I’ve always said. Him mocking the cybermen. Their sad eyes and down turned lips and dressed up like dolls. They almost look embarrassed and ashamed at their own existence, like a dog with the cone collar around its head or dressed up in silly pink outfits. The designers managed to catch so much deeper meaning in their design that’s why I love it so much

    I have watched story three times and still did not fully recognise Cyberman. Very unusual and good cover. Be interesting to see how difficult it will be getting a copy Thursday. Less around and some branches of WHS get so many and others barely any. I bought penultimate copy midday Thursday last time.

    Although I can’t wait for the clean subscribers copy, I also love the three small photos across the bottom … Death to the Daleks on the cover two months running! In 2020! Who’d have thought…

    Is this a new image of the Cybermaster? Csnt say I’ve seen it before

      From 13th Doctor The Timeless Children. Created By the Master, which is why its all etched and over Designed. The other Cybermen in the same episode, were so Amazing, Clean, functinal, and very Cyber Designed.

      These are TimeLord Cybermen. Still a beautiful design, not sure about the mouth turned down. But thats the Master for you.

      Lovely cover though, and great to see some new series Covers.We dont get enough of them, specially when not on air.
