Series 7 Filming: Cybermen on Set

Filming has begun on Neil Gaiman’s Series 7 episode and already some exciting details are coming through.

Note: This post may contain spoilers.

The Cybermen will indeed be getting a new look as was rumoured once again. Set reporter Ryan/Timeboy described their redesign:

Very similar to the Cybus ones, but they have tighter armour and Tomb of the Cybermen-like faces!!! Really shiny. The armour is like slim-fitted rubber, similar to the new Sontarans, but silver. Guns fixed on arms, and the leader has an extra gun.

They’re walking softly, slowly, and quietly, like the Hartnell/Troughton era Cybermen

Unfortunately, Ryan also reports that the production team have asked that no photos be taken, so no pics (yet). But we’ll update the post if any happen to get out.

UPDATE: More details from Ryan:

The Cybermen have a cool chest plate, with a camera iris thing in the middle, like this, but closed… Cool slot-like mouth and a more blank, fitted headpiece. And dare I say it, as close to cloth faces as would work in 2012.
