A newsreader sitting at her desk in a TV studio delivers an emergency broadcast. The country is under attack and the government have declared it a state of emergency. As she talks clips of the Cybermen attacking army strongholds are shown on screen, the metal giants wiping out anyone and anything that stands in their way. The reporter hears from her earpiece that there is no new word from the government; the country is on its own. She unnervingly explains that the Cybermen are everywhere, before urging people to run if they see the metal monsters. Suddenly the building is under attack and as the desperate newsreader falls to the floor explosions rock the room, destroying the set. The reporter then tearfully calls out to her mum and dad before attempting to sign off, but it is too late.
