Rumour: Cybermen to Face Jodie Whittaker in “Darker” Series 12

One of the criticisms of Doctor Who Series 11 was the lack of returning foes. It appears showrunner Chris Chibnall is attempting to rectify the situation though with Series 12.

The Judoon are of course already confirmed, and now comes another rumour from the Mirror this time claiming the Cybermen will also make an appearance.

The full report states:

Doctor Who will battle old villains the Cybermen in a plot that is the stuff of classic horror.

Jodie Whittaker’s Time Lord clashes with them in the 19th century in a “darker” new series out next year.

And the plot involves the part-human, part-machine monsters inspiring author Mary Shelley to write iconic horror novel Frankenstein.

A source said: “This new run is much scarier than Jodie’s first year and will ­definitely put the frighteners on fans. Things are about to get darker for the Doctor.”
