Don't click here if you don't want to know what classic monster is back in Doctor Who series 8....

This article contains a spoiler for Doctor Who series 8. The new series of Doctor Who begins on BBC One on Saturday 23rd August, with Peter Capaldi taking over the controls to the TARDIS. We've got some idea of the shape of series eight since the show's revival too, but details have been scarce as to whether he'll be battling any classic monsters.

Here, then, we put up a big picture of Mr Capaldi. If you tread the other side of it, you're in spoiler-land.

Still here? Well, it turns out that the Cybermen are going to be making an appearance in the new series. The BBC's official Doctor Who account Tweeted a picture which confirmed their reappearance. Whether the cybermen will have a fleeting appearance, as has been the case in some recent episodes, or something more substantive remains to be seen. It's not uncommon for us to be led into thinking the monster of an episode is one thing, only for it to be revealed as another.

The Cybermen are following the design seen in Nightmare In Silver, by the way.
