Who fans rejoice! The Cybermen will return to this season’s Doctor Who thanks to Mr. Neil Gaiman. This will be Gaiman’s second time writing a Doctor Who episode. His first script, The Doctor’s Wife, won a Hugo Award.
The episode is reported to be planned for the spring and will also star Life’s Too Short‘s Warwick Davis and Being Human‘s Jason Watkins.
