Webley has an empty Cyber-suit in his home, which he uses as a parlour trick when he gets people to play chess with it. Inside is actually a little person nicknamed "Porridge" (Creator/WarwickDavis!) who quickly befriends Clara. Just as the whole gang is about to head back home, the Doctor realises that things are ''very wrong'' on this planet, and goes off to investigate, telling the kids to stay put. They don't, of course, and while Angie, Artie and Webley get kidnapped and put into a "walking coma" by the quickly revived Cyberman, the Doctor is infected by Cybermites (like Cybermats, only quite tiny) and turned into a ''magnificently'' LargeHam in the process. The Cybermen were only looking for clever young children, like Angie and Artie, but a ''Time Lord'' is infinitely more useful. And they really didn't expect to find one here . . . after all, the Doctor has been deleting himself from history across the universe.

Webley has an empty Cyber-suit in his home, which he uses as a parlour trick when he gets people to play chess with it. Inside is actually a little person nicknamed "Porridge" (Creator/WarwickDavis!) who quickly befriends Clara. Just as the whole gang is about to head back home, the Doctor realises that things are ''very wrong'' on this planet, and goes off to investigate, telling the kids to stay put. They don't, of course, and while Angie, Artie and Webley get kidnapped and put into a "walking coma" by the quickly revived Cyberman, the Doctor is infected by Cybermites (like Cybermats, only quite tiny) and turned into a ''magnificently'' LargeHam in the process. The Cybermen were only looking for clever young children, like Angie and Artie, but a ''Time Lord'' is infinitely more useful. And they really didn't expect to find one here... after all, the Doctor has been deleting himself from history across the universe.

The Doctor tells the Cyberplanner, who's taking over the Doctor's mind, that he could simply commit HeroicSuicide and regenerate on the spot to destroy the Cyberplanner's implants -- and, via the Cyberiad network, every Cyberman it controls. Instead, they battle it out both in the Doctor's subconscious and over a game of chess. The Doctor's fully aware that the Cyberplanner will betray him no matter who wins, but does what he can to protect the children. Meanwhile, Clara takes full advantage of the Doctor's BavarianFireDrill and takes charge of the platoon. She spends most of it trying to prevent the soldiers from blowing up the planet, since that's been their modus operandi ever since the last war with the Cybermen. They even blew up the Cybermen's entire galaxy. Porridge tells Clara that he feels tremendously guilty over that -- because no matter how much he tries to think about all the lives that were lost that day, all he can really bring himself to care about is the poor man who had to push the button.

The Doctor temporarily manages to short-circuit his cyber parts using his golden ticket and tries to avoid Clara's difficult questions about the things the Cyberplanner has been telling her -- about her being "impossible", for one. When he finally manages to use the platoon's gadgets and his own screwdriver to remove his cyber parts and gets the kids out of their comas, Angie points out what's been glaringly obvious to her all along: Porridge is the missing galactic emperor. Porridge explains that his off-planet army can transmat them all out within seconds, so blowing up the planet was actually a pretty viable idea all along. And he's so impressed by Clara's leadership skills that he asks for her hand in marriage. She declines, to Angie's great annoyance.

Hedgewick's World of Wonders is known as the greatest theme park in the galaxy. The Doctor takes [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E11TheCrimsonHorror new temporary companions Angie and Artie Maitland]] to the park for a fun day out (he's got a golden ticket and everything), but the TARDIS parks them there a few decades too late and the whole place has been shut down. Instead of the Spacey Zoomer and free ice cream, team TARDIS finds an army platoon that has been sent there (mostly to keep them out of everyone else's way) and a caretaker named Webley. The Doctor runs a BavarianFireDrill and pretends to be a high-up envoy of the emperor, who's been missing for a number of years. He decides to hang out with Webley for a bit just to show the kids a good time.

Webley has an empty Cyber-suit in his home, which he uses as a parlor trick when he gets people to play chess with it. Inside is actually a little person nicknamed "Porridge" (Creator/WarwickDavis!) who quickly befriends Clara. Just as the whole gang is about to head back home, the Doctor realises that things are ''very wrong'' on this planet, and goes off to investigate, telling the kids to stay put. They don't, of course, and while Angie, Artie and Webley get kidnapped and put into a "walking coma" by the quickly revived Cyberman, the Doctor is infected by Cybermites (like Cybermats, only quite tiny) and turned into a ''magnificently'' LargeHam in the process. The Cybermen were only looking for clever young children, like Angie and Artie, but a ''Time Lord'' is infinitely more useful. And they really didn't expect to find one here... after all, the Doctor has been deleting himself from history across the universe.

** In the opening scene, Angie and Artie are convinced they're on the moon, even though the obvious signs that they aren't are literally on the walls off-camera. They also didn't seem to find anything odd about being able to ''breathe'' on the moon.

* FlipPersonality: Mr Clever and the Doctor are repeatedly taking control of their shared body from each other.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The Captain definitely twigs onto Angie's mention of Porridge, and takes her aside saying they need to talk. On first watch, it seems that the Captain wants to know about squatters living on the planet, but after TheReveal that A) She previously was part of The Emperor's guard detail and B) that Porridge is the Emperor, the reason for her reaction becomes far more clear.

** The Creator/BigFinish Eighth Doctor audio episode "The Silver Turk" also features Cybermen playing board games. Both episodes reference the original mechanical turk (a supposed chess machine which was actually operated by a person inside). That makes the second direct reference in this season to an Eighth Doctor audio from that specific storyline, after "Hide" name-checked the story "The Witch from the Well" (which comes directly after "The Silver Turk").

* IShallTauntYou: At the end of his chess game, the Doctor claims he can win in three moves. This is such a bare-faced lie that the Cyber-Planner borrows the computing power of his entire army to definitively prove the Doctor's full of it. This allows Clara and the soldiers to escape an otherwise-imminent demise and the Doctor to modify a pulse glove to free himself. For the record, the Doctor was indeed lying. He did not have mate [[ExactWords in three moves]]. [[http://setsuled.livejournal.com/880790.html He had it]] [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome in six]]. After all,he [[ExactWords didn't say]] he "had mate" in three moves, he said he ''would win'' in three moves.

** The Cybermen take this trope up a notch with their AdaptiveAbility by being able to shrug off methods that would have killed them left and right. In particular, the electrified moat only briefly stops one until it adapts, and the gun that ''vaporized'' one Cyberman only gets off two more shots before they're completely immune.

** The chess-playing Cyberman at the beginning is a reference to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Turk The Mechanical Turk]], an eighteenth-century automaton that, like the Cyberman, was actually a fake operated by a chess-player hidden inside the cabinet, which used [[DisappearingBox magicians' tricks]] to make the space available appear smaller than it was (yes, it was BiggerOnTheInside).
** Clara is told that if she has a chance to become queen of the universe, [[Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}} she should say yes]].

** The Cybermen took ''many'' over the millenia. They went from being somewhat slow-moving cyborgs that had several methods of taking them down to graduating into {{Lightning Bruiser}}s by means of SuperSpeed, require special guns to even damage them, can now convert races other than human (Time Lords included), and a ''very'' quick AdaptiveAbility. They've also stopped saying "[[RoarBeforeBeating Delete!]]" It seems these Cyberman don't bother with giving advanced warnings, preferring to simply grab people and convert them as quickly as possible, since it's far more ''efficient''. The upgrade is so severe, the Cybermen, a planetful of which were getting [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E13Doomsday mowed down by only four Daleks once upon a time]], appear capable of matching the Dalek's in the Time War. Most frightening of all, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking they stopped talking in those high-pitched electronic voices and have gone to a]] [[EvilSoundsDeep Deep Baritone]]! It has gotten to the point where if a ''single Cyberman'' is seen, military units have standing orders to kill it on sight, and failing that, flat-out destroy the planet they are on, regardless of any people that may also be on said planet at the time.

** The infamous gold allergy. Most of the Cybermen have evolved beyond it, but the cyber-mites' operating system ''still'' contains this glitch buried deep within the source code. This causes the tech to be temporarily scrambled by gold until the Cyber-Planner manages to install a software patch.
