A Cyber-Controller directed lesser-ranking Cybermen and Cyber-Leaders from the Cyber-Tombs and, later from Cyber-Control.




Early history

In 2006, the Doctor met the Cyber-Controller in its original form as the Cyber-Planner. (NA: Iceberg)

On Telos

The Cyber-Controller (right) as it appeared around the time it encountered the Sixth Doctor.

Centuries later, though at an earlier stage in his personal time, the Doctor and his companions found the Cyber-Controller in the Cyber-Tombs. It immediately took charge of the Cybermen. Toberman, a partially cyber-converted Human attacked the Controller before just the Doctor sealed off the Cyber-Tombs, freezing the Cybermen once more. (DW: The Tomb of the Cybermen) Later on returning to Telos, though the the Doctor believed the Controller had died, he met the Cyber-Controller again. A blast from a cyber-gun fired by the Doctor himself (presumably) killed him. (DW: Attack of the Cybermen)

Alternative timeline

On the planet Chronos in the year 3286, the Doctor encountered a version of his companion, Evelyn Smythe, who had become the Cyber-Controller long ago. This Controller planned to convert the Doctor himself into the next Cyber-Controller. This Cyber-Controller had come into existence when, Evelyn, infected by a techno-virus created by her own future self, had landed on 1927 Earth. The techno-virus had allowed the cyber-conversion of the Humans who survived the virus. The Cyber-Controller himself infected Evelyn, his former self. Reece Goddard, a Cyberman from this timeline who resembled a Human, killed this Cyber-Controller. Neither the Doctor or Evelyn realised the connection between her and this Controller. (BFA: Real Time, WC: Real Time)

Since this timeline was negated, we must speculate that the Cyber-Controller's plan never came to fruition.

Physical appearance

Taller than the others, the Controller had an enlarged, dome-shaped semi-transparent brain case lit from the inside. He also lacked the Cyberman chest unit. The Cyber-Controller had such authority that, upon awakening, the other Cybermen appeared to salute him. (DW: The Tomb of the Cybermen) Later, he served to co-ordinate from Telos, the Controller had changed physically, now having changed to resemble the other Cybermen of that era. He had a chest unit. He now had a metal, though still enlarged, brain case. (DW: The Tomb of the Cybermen)

Behind the Scenes

  • The credits list the Controller in The Tomb of the Cybermen list the Controller slightly differently, as the Cyberman Controller.
  • Whether not the title of Cyber-Controller belongs to a unique individual or more than one (sequentially or at the same time) remains unclear.
