    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Although the fact that the Cybermen are seeking "revenge" is often cited as a goof, in fact it is Tyrum who says they need fear the "vengeance of the Cybermen." The Cybermen simply plan to destroy Voga as a primary threat to their conquest.

      • Despite the fact that Cybermen are emotionless beings, the Doctor easily provokes the Cyberleader into strangling him. Worse, the Cyberleader then tosses him away.

      • In the previous episode the Doctor explains the Cybermen's weakness to gold is because it clogs their breathing appartus. But here gold affects the Cybermen radar. Radar doesn't need to breathe.

      • The Vogans live on a planet made of gold. They helped develop the gold weapons that defeated the Cybermen. They know the Cybermen are coming and live in a state of paranoia about that eventuality. So why in the world do they attack the Cybermen with useless projectile weapons instead of "glitter guns" or some other gold-based weapon?

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Cyberleader: The matter is of no interest to you.
        The Doctor: Everything's of interest to me.

      • Cyberleader: That is why we will rule the cosmos!
        The Doctor: Loose thinking. The trouble with Cybermen is they have hydraulic muscles, and of course hydraulic brains to go with them.

      • Lester: Why don't we just wait here?
        The Doctor: I think my idea is better.
        Lester: What is your idea.
        The Doctor: I don't know yet. That's the trouble with ideas – they only come a bit at a time.

      • The Doctor [who has a bomb strapped to his back]: Careful, careful! I might explode!

      • The Doctor [to the Cyberleader]: You've no home planet, no influence, nothing! You're just a pathetic bunch of tin soldiers skulking about the galaxy in an ancient spaceship.

    • NOTES (1)

      • There's an amusing sight gag when Lester, the Doctor, and Stevenson are recovering consciousness. Lester is covering his ears, the Doctor his eyes, and Stevenson his mouth. This is an in-joke to the three monkeys and the phrase "Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil."
