Neil Gaiman is writing another episode of Doctor Who, marking the return of the villainous Cybermen, Deadline reports. The writer’s episode will air as part of the second half of series 7, airing Spring 2013.
Gaiman’s previous episode featured the TARDIS getting a human body, and was critically acclaimed. A self-proclaimed life-long fan of The Doctor and his adventures, Gaiman focusing this time on the classic villains is a welcome surprise.
In addition, Warwick Davis, known well for his geeky roles in small franchises like Star Wars and Harry Potter will star in the episode, along notable British TV actors Tamzin Outhwaite and Jason Watkins.
