Keep Calm The Mondasian Way by AntediluvianWhovian Keep Calm The Mondasian Way by AntediluvianWhovian
An homage to "Spare Parts" - that fabulous Big Finsh audio drama that explores the origins of the 'true' Cybermen, those created on the Earth's long-lost twin sisterworld, Mondas - using the famous and currently popular 'Keep Calm' theme.


Doctor Who belongs to the BBC.

I just noticed the year of creation. Ahah. I now have to theorize how Spare Parts and Iceberg can fit together , as Spare Parts is set millions of years in the future and far from Planet 14 , while in Iceberg the Coordinator/Controller is only 10 000 years old.

Ah - I might be able to clear that up for you! I only put the copyright year on the poster as 8687 because of implications made in two other Cybermen audio stories - The Reaping and The Gathering. Mondas is actually many thousands of years older than Earth, and so the supposed year might well be 8687 on the Mondasian calendar, but the Earth year at exactly the same time is in fact AD1984.

Hope that's helpful :D

I listened to them , so I get the eight six eight seven thing. However anything that happens on Mondas seems to contradict the other sources. And we don't even know what happened on Planet 14 with the Doctor.

Unfortunately because there's no "official" publication or production that explains the events on Planet Fourteen, we fans have to come up with our own theories there. Strangely enough I am at this very moment in the process of knocking together an eBook which presents my theory of those events...

I had the feeling you were already on something like this. Meanwhile I'm reading the three Cybermen books (just finished Iceberg , starting Killing Ground) to try to understand the rest of their history. And writing down theories at 1 AM about why Kroton was on Telos with this Nomad design.

Haha best of luck figuring it out. I should just point out at this stage that the generally accepted theory among devoted Cyberfans (supported by David Banks in his Cybermen book) is that there are loads of different factions of Cybermen all over the universe. In the audio "Kingdom of Silver" it's suggested that Telos wasn't the only planet that they built a cryogenic preservation unit on; the Cybermen seeded "tombworlds" throughout the galaxy. Of course, part and parcel of this generally accepted theory is that along the way the various groups of Cybermen landed on planets all over the place where they found civilisations, and as well as processing/converting the life forms into their race they also incorporated any of said civilisations' technology they felt they could use into their own. The inclusion of new technology would subsequently influence Cyber-upgrades, explaining why there are lots of different-looking sorts of Cybermen. The eBook I'm doing at the moment is meant to explain how the "Invasion" type came about. It implies that some "Tenth Planet" Cybermen arrived on a planet, converted all its people and nicked all its tech, and the new tech had pontential to improve the efficiency and performace of Cyberman body mods, so they used them and made themselves into the "Invasion" type. But because the "Moonbase" type, for example, never went to that planet, they never had that technology and so they are different.

Hope that's helpful!

Just so you know, the Cybermen in "Spare Parts" were from ~1985, not 8687 :) But amazing none the less!

Just so you know, Mondas civilised thousands of years before Earth and would have a totally different calendar, so what's 1985 to us would probably be a totally different number on Mondas. I used 8687 as the "Mondasian year" parallel to whatever the Earth year was because of the extensive use of the number 8687 in relation to the Cybermen in the paired audio dramas "The Reaping" and "The Gathering" - and thanks!

Ha, yeah, hey, I just really wanna know, being a new series fan who has seen some of the classic series, I consider them to be one big continuity, why dont alot of classic fans consider it that way, to me Doctor Who is Doctor Who, whether its from 1963, 1970, 1998, or 2012, its all the same show to me, why not to you guys?

They survived, though, seeding tombworlds throughout the universe. I love the way the audios play on that same Cybermythology that was introduced in Tomb of the Cybermen and suggest that Telos wasn't their only seat of hibernation. Who knows how many little pockets of Cybermen exist out there? :)

It would be fun to have the "new" Cybermen find one of the Tombs and wind up fighting with the Mondasian Cybermen. It'd make for an interesting episode...
