That Neil Gaiman-penned Who episode we’ve been all a-flutter about since it was announced? It’s going to be a Cybermen story.

Directed by Stephen Woolfenden, Gaiman’s episode is to feature the silver villains alongside a guest cast including Warwick Davis, Tamzin Outhwaite and Jason Watkins as “…a band of misfits on a mysterious planet”.

Steven Moffat had this to say, “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. 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.”

We’ll keep you posted as soon as we know more. In the meantime, why not read our celebration of the Cybermen, here.
