Mr Crane, played by Colin Spaull, was responsible for converting humans into Cybermen in Battersea Power Station, as seen in "Rise of the Cybermen" (2006). He turned against his boss, John Lumic, in "The Age of Steel" (2006), when he tried to have him converted into a Cyberman. Crane damaged Lumic's life support system and was then killed by a Cyberman. Crane's actions prompted the Cybermen to "upgrade" Lumic prematurely, converting him into a Cyber Controller.
Actor Colin Spaull previously appeared in Doctor Who as Lilt in Revelation of the Daleks (1985).

Then you, the burlesque of our lustand faith,
Lug us back lifewardbone by infant bone.”

But those of memory.
Yet how much room for memory there is
In the loose girdle of soft rain.”
