Recurring and Historical Characters

The Ogrons are apelike creatures who the Daleks used as slave labour in Day of the Daleks .

The Cybermen were the inhabitants of Earth's twin planet Mondas who replaced much of their bodies with machines in order to survive it being pulled out of orbit and flying away from the sun. In the process, they removed their emotions. They were first seen in The Tenth Planet (Classic Series Season 3), and the model seen here is the same as in The Invasion (Classic Series Season 6), in which they attempted to invade Earth during the 1970s.
