In newly-released footage, we can see battered, half-converted Lone Cyberman Ashad (Patrick O’Kane) teaming up with two similarly rusty 2006-era “Cybus” Cybermen, a design of the cyborg baddies that was replaced with a newer model in 2013.
Meanwhile, there’s no sign of the shinier, larger-headed new Cybermen teased in an earlier trailer, suggesting that Ashad will have to team up with the dregs of the Cyberman army (including these older models) to somehow bring this powerful new force into being.
But does this mean we could see more older Cyberman designs in the two-part finale? Will the more human Mondasian Cybermen (last seen in 2017) make an appearance, possibly even alongside some genuine classic-era designs?
