- This bookazine from Panini Comics launched a new and distinct series of special edition guides to Doctor Who in all mediums and was priced £9.99 (UK) running to 116 pages.
- Panini asked Tynan to design a new Cyberman. She submitted a design that "reinterpret[ed] Kit Pedler's original brief using 21st century materials and a more generous budget than had been available in the 1960s". It used features that been dropped at the time, such as seeing the actor's face and hair.
- The contents saw a combination of televised adventure features interspersed with behind the scenes themed articles. Televised adventures were covered by a two-page double page spread each including story feature, Cyber Technology (development of), The Cybermen (the evolution of), Classic Scene and Essential Data (broadcast and credit details).
