The Winged Spidelephant is based on a comment made by a denizen of Twitter who said she’d just seen:

Gone for Gold

Why Cybermen should not go for gold
29th July 2012
Inspired by the 2012 Olympics.
For those of you who aren’t versed in Doctor Who lore, Cybermen (The dead one in the middle) have a weakness to gold. It’s their Achilles heel and exposure to it kills them.
The Dalek on the left should be recognisable to pretty much everyone even if you don’t ‘do’ Doctor Who.
The one on the right is a little more obscure. It’s a character called Alpha Centauri from the 1970s Doctor Who stories; “The Curse of Peladon” and “The Monster of Peladon” and one of my all-time favourite Doctor Who creatures.
The bottom half of Alpha Centauri is my own extrapolation as you never really see it clearly in the original series and the design seems a little vague even in clear photos.
