Trivia

According to "Behind the scenes...", the Cybermen were redesigned for this episode and got a variety of new abilities and features. These new Cybermen share several similarities with the Borg Collective of Star Trek - which were in turn originally based somewhat upon the Cybermen. The Cybermen's ability to adapt to attacks is reminiscent of the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). Additionally, the Borg used nanoprobes to convert individuals, similar to the cybermites, and Webley's cyber-appearance is reminiscent of the Borg's "half machine, half human" face. And as of Star Trek: First Contact (1996) they, like these Cybermen, assimilated new members by use of something coming out of their wrists. Voice notifications for individuals to convert were also typical for the Borg and the Cybermen, both new and old. See more »

The Cybermen are NOT a Borg Ripp off
22 December 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

It is so funny to see someone claim the Cybermen are a Borg rip off! If anything it was the other way around, in fact (being a fan of both shows) I remember stating when next gen was on "Oh look it's the Cybermen"! The upgrade to the Cybermen was brilliant and works perfectly with their character, I for one would now like to see them take on the Pepper Pot Daleks again and whoop their eye Stalks! Loved the Episode, and the style, come on everyone, DR Who is cutting edge, fast paced and requires some investment of attention, unlike almost every other show I watch where I spend most of the time playing on my phone as well. I agree it has gotten quite Dark, but that's the show, constantly changing, let's see what the new DR brings:)
