And do you also love annoying-ass bratty kids that do nothing but complain and don't contribute to the story whatsoever?
Wait don't walk away...
Where are you going?

The Cybermen in Nightmare in Silver are badass, I mean really badass, Guts wrapped in Sean Connery served with a platter of Clint Eastwood badass. Did I also mention they look and act a lot like Monsoon from Metal Gear Rising? Here is a well reasoned explanation in the form of song, feel free to sing along.
WASH AWAY THE ANGER
HERE I STAND BENEATH THE WARM AND SOOTHING RAIN
THE DROPLETS FALLING GENTLY DOWN ON THE TERRAIN
WASH AWAY THE SORROW ALL THE STAINS OF TIME
BUT THERE’S NO MEMORY IT’S ONLY DRY INSIDE
IN THE MUD AND SINKING DEEPER INTO A PEACEFUL LIFE
AND IT WILL COME LIKE A FLOOD OF PAIN
POURING DOWN ON ME
AND IT WILL NOT LET UP UNTIL THE END IS HERE
AND IT WILL COME THROUGH THE DARKEST DAY IN MY FINAL HOUR
AND IT WILL NEVER REST UNTIL THE CLOUDS ARE CLEAR
UNTIL IT FINDS MY DREAMS HAVE DISAPPEARED MY DREAMS DISAPPEAR
Alternatiely, they are straight up Borg ripoff there.
All that bullshit aside, it's obvious in retrospect that Neal Greyman's script was ruined and the whole thing bollocksed-up by the director. The ever-superior El Sandifer describes how it all got wrong here.
