Doctor Who writer Phil Ford has spoken recently to Digital Spy about the development of the script of the second game, Blood of the Cybermen.
Doctor Who: The Adventure Games‘ second episode features the Doctor and Amy encountering Cybermen in Antarctica – not to mention Cybermats, last seen in 1975′s Revenge of the Cybermen…
“…we haven’t seen the Cybermats for donkey’s years, since the ’70s I believe, and they come back and do something different to what they used to do. In the old days they just used to kill people, I believe.
“This time it’s a bite that has a different kind of effect on their victims, which suffice to say, means a lot of flesh turning into metal!”
“At one point when we were developing this story, the scientist discovers something under the ice, and in the original draft it was a Cyberman’s head. And then Steven came back to us sometime after the first draft and said, ‘Sorry you can’t have the Cyberman’s head because I’m going to use it.’”
