Cybermen to Return to Doctor Who, Courtesy of Neil Gaiman

DOCTOR WHO "Closing Time" Season 6 Episode 12 (2)

Earlier this year, Neil Gaiman announced that he was penning a new episode of Doctor Who. Although there aren’t too many details available yet, BBC One’s Doctor Who blog recently confirmed that the Cybermen would be returning to Doctor Who and revealed a little bit about who would be involved in this episode.

Gaiman’s Cybermen episode will be directed by Stephen Woolfenden and co-star Warwick Davis, Tamzin Outhwaite, and Jason Watkins, who form a band of misfits that The Doctor (Matt Smith) and his new companion (Jenna-Louise Coleman) encounter on a mysterious planet.

Doctor Who is scheduled to return for its Christmas Special on December 25th. Neil Gaiman’s Cybermen episode is expected to be a part of the eight episode spring run of Doctor Who in 2013.
