    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Other Mistake: As Scott prepares to gun down the two Cybermen, the emotionless creatures seem to be gossiping, complete with hand gestures.

      • Revealing Mistake: During the cliffhanger, it's obvious that the three columns of Cybermen are mirror images: watch the middle one's right hand disappear.

      • Revealing Mistake: The steel bulkhead the Cybermen destroy flaps around as thought made of cardboard — the pieces of door also look like cardboard.

      • Continuity: The Cybermen set four explosive charges around the outside of the bulkhead, but only the middle is damaged.

      • Crew Visible: As Tegan complains that she's exhausted, something that looks like a stick is being waved around in the darkness. Then, as they climb the stairs on their way to the bridge, a person holding a script can be seen in the background.

      • Continuity: When the Cyberman breaks through the softened bridge door, the damage to the door and the Cyberman's arm change size and position between shots.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Cyber Leader: Our reports indicate that you have a fondness for Earth.
        The Doctor: "Fondness"? I'm surprised your emotionless brain understands the word.
        Cyber Leader: It is a word like any other. And so is "destruction", which is what we're going to do to that planet.
        The Doctor: You've tried before.
        Cyber Leader: This time we shall succeed, and you will live just long enough to witness it.

      • Adric: I think Mr. Ringway's recovering.
        Briggs: Pity. I've just composed a particulary nasty epitaph for him.

      • Ringway: I've apprehended two stowaways.
        Briggs: "Apprehended." Why can't you say "caught"? You're so melodramatic!

      • Ringway [ of the Cybermen ]: You know them?
        The Doctor: Oh yes. We go back a long way.

      • Tegan: I'm just a mouth on legs.

      • Cyberleader My army awakes, Doctor!
