Nice Dr Who clips & photos.
RE: The Cybermen. They were from the 80s. Anyway, they were pretty much all tall and skinny in most of the old series. Even so, you should have seen the Cybercontroller from the 1985 serial Attack of the Cybermen. Some fans nicknamed him (a bit cruelly) as the Fat Controller.
RE: Medusa. She was the real deal, for a given value of 'real'. She appeared in a story called The Mind Robber, set in a world of fiction come to life, so it's not surprising that Medusa appeared. I highly recommend The Mind Robber, it's one of the best from Patrick Troughton's era.
The song comes from an audio story called Doctor Who and the Pirates, or: The Lass that Lost a Sailor. I have it in my possession, but am yet to listen to it. I heard that it is, for the most part, funny, although it gets darker as time goes by. Even so, it has Bill Oddie as a pirate captain. They used (albeit deliberately) a clip of Peri though for a different companion's brief dialogue at the start ("Oh no, you ARE going to sing..."). Said companion is Evelyn Smythe, one of the few middle-aged companions the Doctor has ever had, and one of the audio-only companions. There's a link below for more info.
