They’re back! The BBC has confirmed The Cybermen will indeed be returning to Doctor Who in Series 7 Part 2. And not just in any episode, but in the episode penned by celebrated and loved writer Neil Gaiman. Double win!
Here are the recently released episode details,
Starring Matt Smith as the Doctor and Jenna-Louise Coleman as the new companion, the episode co-stars Warwick Davis (Life’s Too Short and Harry Potter), Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders and Hotel Babylon) and Jason Watkins (Being Human and Lark Rise to Candleford) as a band of misfits on a mysterious planet…
Steven Moffat, Lead Writer and Executive Producer, told us, ‘Cybermen were always the monsters that scared me the most! Not just because they were an awesome military force, but because sometimes they could be sleek and silver and right behind you without you even knowing. ’ He added, ‘And with one of the all-time classic monsters returning, and a script from one of our finest novelists, it’s no surprise we have attracted such stellar names as Tamzin, Jason and Warwick.’
I think a lot of fans might be more excited for this episode than any other, what about you? I know Gaiman’s episode in Series 6, “The Doctor’s Wife” was my favorite and I can’t wait to see what he does next. I wonder what the title is? Gaiman offered some clues on his blog a few weeks back and it’s been guessed the title will fit this format: _ _ _ (3 letters ) _ _ _ _ (4 letters) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (8 letters). So, “The _ _ _ _ Cybermen” perhaps? It’s a guess, but what could that four letter word be?
