Doctor Who fans are set for a pretty amazing surprise on next week’s episode of Doctor Who, as there will be some very familiar faces popping up in the latest instalment.
Doctor Who – Nightmare In Silver is set to air on BBC One on Saturday 11th May and once again the Doctor’s arch enemies The Cybermen will be wreaking havoc around the universe.
The titular timelord (Matt Smith) will be captured by his foes, and they will dig into his mind and all of his many previous regenerations. It’s been reported that former actors who held the role over the years, including late stars William Hartnell and Jon Pertwee, will flash up on a screen.
The episode synopsis for ‘Nightmare In Silver’ states:
“Hedgewick’s World of Wonders was once the greatest theme park in the galaxy, but it’s now the dilapidated home to a shabby showman, a chess-playing dwarf and a dysfunctional army platoon.”
The Doctor, Artie, Angie and of course Clara arrive to investigate, only to shockingly discover that The Cybermen are back and following through with more plans of evil world domination once again.
The episode was written by Neil Gaiman and directed by Stephen Woolfenden and it’s been reported that show boss Steven Moffat asked Gaiman to make the Cybermen “scary again”. Neil explained that he thought back to classic series serials The Moonbase and The Tomb of the Cybermen (1967) and decided to “take the 1960s Cybermen and [incorporate] everything that’s happened since”.
The foes haven’t been featured on the show since the sixth series episode “Closing Time”
