This is the Doctor Who S10 Ep11 Trailer that aired on BBC America over the weekend. Making much more obvious that the story is a genesis of the Cybermen tale.
These Cybermen are from the planet Mondas which we first saw in 1966. Mondas was said to be a sister planet to the Earth, rotating around the Sun 180 degrees apart. So it was always hidden from astronomers view behind the sun. It was William Hartnell’s last story and it was the first time we saw the Doctor regenerate.
In more recent times we saw the Cybermen created on a parallel universe Earth. These later travelled across to ‘our’ universe.
As you will note these early Cybermen have cloth faces. They are now referred to as Mondasian Cybermen. In later stories they went on to have metal faces making them much more like the subsequent parallel universe Cybermen.
This story is the first of two parts. The second episode, airing on July 2nd 2017, is titled “The Doctor Falls”.
