Torchwood Episode 4:


Not all of the humans converted into Cybermen during the last invasion were killed. One has survived, and she used to be Ianto's girlfriend, Lisa. Now half-human and half-Cyberman, Lisa has been hidden in the bowels of the Torchwood Hub until Ianto can find a way to restore her to the way she was. But can Lisa really be saved -- or is she lost to him forever?


Cyberwoman -- originally called “The Trouble With Lisa” -- marked head writer Chris Chibnall's second scripting contribution to Torchwood, following Day One. It was directed by James Strong, who had helmed The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit for Doctor Who's 2006 season. Cyberwoman was part of Torchwood's third production block, joining They Keep Killing Suzie.
