sypnosis

Hedgewick’s World of Wonders was once the greatest theme park in the galaxy, but it’s now the dilapidated home to a shabby showman, a chess-playing dwarf and a dysfunctional army platoon.

When the Doctor, Clara, Artie and Angie arrive, the last thing they expect is the re-emergence of one of the Doctor’s oldest foes. The Cybermen are back!

NOTES

  1. The episode’s title, Nightmare in Silver, is reminiscent of Silver Nemesis, in that, in both cases, the "Silver" is referring to Cybermen.
  2. A working title for the episode was The Last Cyberman
  3. The Cyber-Doctor answers to Clara‘s question of "More Cybermen?" with "They’re waking from their tomb right now." which is a possible reference to the television story Tomb of the Cybermen.
  4. Subsequently, the Cybermen exiting their tombs mirrors the cliffhanger of Earthshock Part 3 when three rows of Cybermen march towards the camera.
  5. When the Doctor lets the Cyber-Doctor access his memories on regeneration, his previous ten incarnations are seen. Each image of an incarnation is taken from photograph stills used as promotional material during the respective actors’ tenures.
  6. The Cybermen’s ability to adapt to attacks is reminiscient of the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Additionally, the Borg used nanotechnology to convert individuals, similar to the cybermites, and Webley’s cyber-appearance is reminiscient of the Borg’s "half machine, half human" face. And as of "Star Trek: First Contact" they, like these Cybermen, assimilated new members by uEve De Leon Allen (Angie), Kassius Carey Johnson (Artie)se of something coming out of their wrists.
  7. The Cyber-Doctor imitates the Ninth Doctor and says "Allons-y" like the Tenth Doctor.
