The BBC have officially confirmed that the Cybermen will return in Neil Gaiman’s Series 7 episode, as was rumoured all along.


Starring Matt Smith as the Doctor and Jenna-Louise Coleman as the new companion, the episode co-stars Warwick Davis (Life’s Too Short and Harry Potter), Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders and Hotel Babylon) and Jason Watkins (Being Human and Lark Rise to Candleford) as a band of misfits on a mysterious planet…

Steven Moffat, Lead Writer and Executive Producer, told us, ‘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. ’ He added, ‘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.’

So “The  _ _ _ _ Cybermen” is looking even more likely for the title now.

UPDATE: Several readers have sent in what is allegedly a pic of a leaked script cover which seemingly confirms the title as “The Last Cyberman”. This originates from a Reddit post claiming it was found in a taxi. It’s more than a little dubious and we advise readers to take with a hefty dose of salt. You can see the image here.

UPDATE 2: It appears that the script is genuine after all based on these tweets from Neil Gaiman and Edward Russell.
