Information about author Neil Gaiman’s upcoming Doctor Who episode, including guest stars and the enemy of the episode, was revealed to fans on Wednesday.
The official Doctor Who BBC blog announced Wednesday Gaiman’s episode will feature the Cybermen. The episode will be directed by Stephen Woolfenden and written by Gaiman.
The episode, which will air in 2013, includes Smith and the new companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman. Warwick Davis (Harry Potter), Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders), and Jason Watkins (Being Human) will be a group of characters from a strange planet.
Steven Moffat, the head writer and an executive producer of the show told BBC:
“Cybermen were always the monsters that scared me the most! Not just because they were an awesome military force, but because sometimes they could be sleek and silver and right behind you without you even knowing. And with one of the all-time classic monsters returning, and a script from one of our finest novelists, it's no surprise we have attracted such stellar names as Tamzin, Jason and Warwick.”
Blastr reports a draft of the script to the episode was left in a cab in Cardiff, Wales. The episode title is reportedly “The Last Cyberman.” A photo of the title page was posted on Facebook.
According to MTV Geek the script was returned to the BBC. One of the actors is believed to have left it in the cab.
Doctor Who will return for a Christmas special on Christmas day on BBC and BBC America. It will then continue in spring of 2013 with the last eight episodes of season 7.
