Raise spoiler shields: is this the villain the Doctor will face in this year's Doctor Who Christmas Special?

Warning: potential spoilers about a returning villain in this year's Doctor Who Christmas Special.

Place this one firmly in the 'unconfirmed' pile for the time being. Stuntwoman and pro-triathlete Darelle Parker tweeted the following last Wednesday the 28th of August:

"Great to be stunting again for Dr Who in the Christmas special playing a Cyberman!"

Taking that as read, it looks as though the Cybermen will be back in Doctor Who (whether as the main foe or in a peripheral, perhaps flashback, role) sooner rather than later. Their most recent appearance was in the Neil Gaiman-scripted series 7b episode, A Nightmare In Silver.

According to some however, we may not even have to wait until Christmas for the Cybermen's return if the 50th anniversary Special has a shiny silver surprise up its sleeve...
