The Cybermen return in 2013 for Neil Gaiman's stand alone episode for the 50th anniversary year story.
It seems the primary inspiration comes in part from those early black-and-white Cybermen episodes, and partly from a decision from Steven Moffat to take these lifesize tin soldiers in a darker direction: “Steven wrote to me and said, ‘Will you make the Cybermen scary again?’. And I thought back to when I was 6 or 7 years old – ‘The Moonbase’, ‘Tomb of the Cybermen’… I saw these when they were first broadcast.”
And one of the creepiest things about their early work is that they did a lot less stomping about like soldiers, and were kind of silent, blank and eerie: ”Daleks went around going, ‘Exterminate’, and blowing things up,” he said. “Cybermen were just… You look up and there’s a Cyberman.”
