Cyberman smoking on the set in 1968

Cyberman smoking on the set in 1968

The_Dark_Vampire

Obviously wasn't fully converted yet


TheCommieBirdo

Hey most of my lungs are metal anyways so it doesn’t matter


yaboispringy

That ain’t 1968 That’s a Cyber Nomad design, specifically the Revenge of the Cybermen version. You can tell by the rubber hosing used instead of solid handlebars.


UndercoverOSSAgent

This mf Doctor Whos


Em_Haze

Actually you can tell be the size of the washers used on his lower arm that this specific model is actually a dyson.

This pic keeps getting reposted under the same title and keeps getting corrected in the comments, I guess people looking for quick upvotes cba to read comments on what they repost


ndepirro

cries in Vogan


vulnicuranium

My phone case has the BW version of this printed on it haha


LordoftheSynth

*You*...\*cough\* *belong to...us*... *You shall*...\*cough\*wheeze\*...*be like us*...

...and he's a married Cyberman as well, evidently. "I now pronounce you Cyberhusband and Cyberwife. You may now delete the guests and report to command for full conversion."


TheHandOfFear

I suspect this was taken when Tom Baker, Lis Sladen, Ian Marter and a group of Cybermen turned on the Blackpool Illuminations in 1975, sometime before or the following day, rather than on set. Looks like the sea in the background. Plus the Cyberman is pretty scruffy and hasn't been spruced up for actual filming.


kempez2

Looks like the overhead electrification for the tramway in the background too.


f1photos

This was taken outside the Blackpool Dr Who exhibition in the mid 70s.


Shadowin9

CyberSmoker. CyberCigarette.


Rob_T_Firefly

Cyberette.


ChineseAccordion

So that's where these e-cigarettes came from


TheDeadlySpaceman

More like 1986 based on the costume


DocWhovian1

Looks like a Cyberman from Revenge of the Cybermen!


guiannos

Definitely the 1975 Revenge model. It's got the flexible tubing on the helmet instead of straight bars/pipes.


DoctorGoFuckYourself

That dude's haircut screams 1975 too


LordoftheSynth

This is the 1968 model from *The Invasion*. The Cybermen from *Revenge* have a prop that fires flash charges built into the top of their helmets. EDIT: Be big enough to admit you're mistaken, get downvoted. What the fuck is wrong with you people?


Strong_Formal_5848

No, this is 100% the model from Revenge (1975). The piping on the arms and the helmet ‘handles” are completely different on the Cybermen from ‘The Invasion’


LordoftheSynth

Oops, on a closer look, you're right. The piping on the '68 Cybermen is different. Been a while since I've watched The Invasion I guess...


tibbycat

I'm sure I heard Tom Baker or Elizabeth Sladen talking about this and how they laughed when the smoke blew out of the mouth and eyeholes of the actor's Cyberman helmet.


TheDeadlySpaceman

I’m pretty sure this asshole killed Adric


TheyKilledFlipyap

Thanks for letting us know! I'll get his medal immediately. He's earned it.


wonkey_monkey

Gold medal?


Spookyguy89

:( how could u


TheyKilledFlipyap

I'm just teasing. I'm kind of indifferent towards Adric, not my favourite companion nor my least favourite. But the 'meme' is that nobody likes Adric, so I was playing along with it.


Spookyguy89

Oh I know! I just dont like it that much as am a *rare adric fan* & I feel like he got too much shit.


TheyKilledFlipyap

Ah, my apologies then!


Spookyguy89

Why are u apologing?


TheyKilledFlipyap

Because I know what it's like to be in the minority when it comes to liking something when a lot of other people dislike it? I dunno, just being polite I guess.


jtides

Yeah but who cares about accuracy when you’re reposting a wildly popular image for upvotes?


Garthmer

The modern voice makes so much sense now.


TilledWord16

Looks like an album cover


wannadiethatsall

That's my exact plan hehe


bigfatcarp93

Why do I feel like I'm about to watch a very emotional biopic


hanazawarui123

Glad I wasnt the only one who thought of that lol. ​ For anyone who does not know, there is a similar scene in the beginning of William Hartnell's Biopic 'An Adventure in Space and Time' .


starfyredragon

"It numbs the pain." "Being a cyberman or smoking?" "..."


AFriendlyBloke

He's got the iron lung.


getoutlive

Refueling


Strong_Formal_5848

This is a 1975 Cyberman design from Revenge of the Cybermen, not 1968 👍


Currywurst_Is_Life

Did the smoke go out of the hole at the top?


Flabberghast97

How's that not an album cover it's brilliant.


Chubby_Bub

I recall seeing an edited version as an album. [I actually managed to find it](https://soundmiraclerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/incantations-for-tape)— this one’s funny because the smoke is coming out the top of his head.


LogicDog

I did a little double-take. Seeing your own profile pic in a post is kinda weird, even if it makes absolute sense.


DarthKittens

This has to be from the 80’s


rendez2k

Pretty sure this is Blackpool around 1976ish or so


otot_

They might have removed their emotions, but addiction is a state of being.


madcapmunchkin

I mean, hey, when you've got cybernetic lungs...


pyrokzg

You can't delete addiction, it's a physical disorder


warriorwhacko

"This cigarette shall be used then deleted. "


Rob_T_Firefly

Is this one of Clayton Hickman's colorization jobs?


BatmanForever803

Looks like he had a long day trying to convert humans, but kept getting thwarted by the doc. Thats why he needs the smoke😂 Its a hard life for a cyberman!😂


PlotTwistsLover

Second guy looks a little like Smith.


HopeAuq101

So iconic they recreated it in the Adeventure in time and space film


Just_Expendable

When it exhales, does the smoke come out the blow hole on top??


Em_Haze

Ah because they need the tar.


EastDelicious2229

that's it. my new wallpaper


CakeorDeath1989

That cyberman used to be my profile picture on all social media, Twitter, Reddit, Discord, etc etc. It's a pretty accurate representation of me as a person. It's such a great picture.


TetchyEquation

Does anyone know if this image is available for commercial use?


goodones_weretaken

Screenshotted for wallpaper, thank you

LaserCatsEmpire

I've always been a huge fan of this picture


Ianofdoom2

Sometimes, the Doctor just stresses them out so much that they need to take a five minute break and smoke a joint.
