Russell T. Davis was proud of the comeback of the cybermen. They have become popular, with school kids arguing over whether Cybermen or Daleks would win. He announced a series following the Preachers, Jake, Mickey and Pete Tyler and their small scale operations to shut down Cybus industries factories worldwide, the Cyberman occupation of the world and how the Free Infomation Collective began. Preaching Freedom first series began and was instantly popular. Critics gave it a mixed review. The target audience was apparently the teenage age group, although this was controversial, such as when the head of Terrasini crime family don Viincent Terrasini murder of black Torchwood official Emmanuel Smith, calling him a "nigger". Emmanuel also called Vincent racist names, such as "Ital", "homeless gangster" and "Italian chav". Despite this, a second series followed, involving the Cyberman occupation of Earth. The third series followed the full scale destruction of the Cybus remnant based on Pete's World and the invasion of Earth by the New Dalek Empire. The fourth series plot hasn't been comfirmed.
