Rebirth of the Cybermen was the 8th episode of Common Series 3. It introduces the original Cybermen from Mondas for the first time in the revived series.
The TARDIS is hijacked by familiar beings, and in the skirmish that follows the Doctor and his companions are ejected into the Time Vortex.
The Doctor falls through time and lands on enemy turf in the future. He hears a recognisable clanking in the distance, and soon faces one of his greatest enemies since his first body.
Amy ends up on Earth in her native year, but when she returns home there is a deadly surprise waiting for her. Once the door opens, steel crunches and maybe she can never leave...
Rory wakes up to a world of machines and factories. He soon discovers everything is wrong...an ancient trap is springing round the time travellers, and men of steel march to victory.
Only the winners write the history books. A new generation of Cyberman is, therefore, ready to grab a pen and paper...
