Neil Gaiman confirms the title of his series seven Doctor Who episode...

Warning: contains spoilers for Doctor Who series 7b

This is more confirmation of an existing rumour than newly minted news, but it's good to know all the same. The penultimate episode of Doctor Who's current series (due to return to the BBC on Easter Saturday), written by Neil Gaiman, will indeed be titled The Last Cyberman.

The name first leaked late last year when a script for the episode was discovered in the back of a cab and its title page went whizzing around cyberspace, and it's been listed on the IMDb ever since, but this confirmation comes straight from the horse's mouth, via an interview Gaiman gave to

Aside from the obvious then, what's the episode about? Identity, responsibility, and porridge according to Gaiman. A look at some of the episode's character names explains the presence of an oats-based breakfast dish on that list, as Porridge happens to be the name Warwick Davis' character goes by. Davis stars alongside Jason Watkins, Tamzin Outhwaite, and Calvin Dean in the Cybermen-focused instalment.

Below, with thanks to Doctor Who News, are a few episode stills taken from the BBC's Coming Soon trailer. Those who want to remain spoiler-free, look away now...
