The Old Cybermen design is scary as hell.

Yet, utterly hilarious when you see it in action.

Wonderful. Was it designed for a book cover or similar? Was it published?

I think it was done in 94 in the era of the BBCs VHS releases, upon the rumour [hoax] that episode four had been found and returned. I believe another artist, possibly Andrew Skilliter, had been commissioned for the cover and Michael Craze recorded an intro before the hoax was revealed. By the time I had my meeting with BBC Enterprises plans to release the story were on hold, although I was told that my art was the preferred choice. However, by the time the story appeared on VHS with a reconstructed episode 4 the design ethos had changed and covers were photo composites supplied by the studio 'Black Sheep'.

Damn shame - would have looked wonderful on a video. Artwork covers are so much more interesting than photo ones.

The expression on the Doctor's face is lovely.

For some inexplicable reason, I found the original cloth-faced Cybermen far, far creepier than the sleeker old school models...
