Our own impression of the new Cybermats…
Cybermats act as the advanced guard and are mainly used for sabotage. This makes things easier for the Cybermen as the Cybermats are much smaller and can easily gain access to forbidden or secure areas.
1st Generation of Cybermats
The Cybermats first featured in The Tomb of the Cybermen. The original Cybermats had crystalline eyes and a segmented body with sensor fronds along their base.
2nd Generation of Cybermats
The Cybermats that appeared in The Wheel in Space were very similar to the ones that had appeared in The Tomb of the Cybermen. They had stronger armour and solid photoreceptors for eyes.
3rd Generation of Cybermats
The 3rd generation of Cybermats were a lot larger than the previous versions, they still had a segmented body but no eyes. The Cybermat that appeared in Revenge of the Cybermen could be remote controlled.
Blood of the Cybermen
The Cybermats made a return in the 2010 Doctor Who Adventure Games Blood of the Cybermen.
