Alexandra Tynan, known as Sandra Reid during her time on Doctor Who, was the credited costumer for several stories during the programme's fourth and fifth seasons. Because the design of the Cyberman was handled by the costumes department, she is as important to the development of that species' basic design as Raymond Cusick is to the Daleks'. She was also at least partially responsible for the design of the Second Doctor's iconic "look".
