Hyperdrive - Cybermen Container

I was watching Hyperdrive the other evening, I was skipping channels and noticed it was on, the episode featured the Lemurian Freighter that I made.
I made some posts back in 2006 about this ship Here's post 1 and here's post 2 also I made a post here about the Dark Star bombs that I'd put amongst the cargo as an in joke.
One thing I thought I'd mentioned at the time but didn't was another of the containers was a series of 12 cylinders meant to contain Cybermen from Doctor Who, the containers had the Cyberman logo on that was seen in the classic Tomb of the Cybermen. Of course this was far too small ever to be seen during the actual episode, I just put them there for fun.

Heh - good Dr. Who choice. I love having personal, 'subliminal' details like that. :-)

I seen this episode on Dave Channel last week, you don't see that ship half as good as you do in your pictures. You should have hidden the Tardis in there too. :)

You fanboy. Thats excellent!

I always thought the cybermen had a good grasp on corporate identity. I'll have to watch Tomb again to see if there's really a little (R) beside the cyberlogo.

Hey you work on Doctor Who? that's awesome! And yeh, things like that add so much believability to a show. Even if it goes unnoticed!

Hey Ken, I don't work on Doctor Who, but I did work on the BBC SF Comedy show Hyperdrive, this container of Cybermen was thrown in as an in joke just for a laugh !!
