Incomprehensible talking Cyberman

I received a talking Earthshock-era Cyberman from a mate a few years ago, and very good it is too. If you’re looking at it. If you want to listen to it you’re in for a shock.

Because while the talking Cyberman is supposed to have four phrases – “Emotion is a weakness” and “Excellent!” are the only ones I can remember – they all sound exactly the same. Which is to say the all sound like “schhh, tschhhhhh, shhhh, tshhh, tschhhchshchhh”.

It’s utterly hopeless at talking. But it still sounds better than the new Cyberman.
