Rory Versus the Cybermen
Enemies are returning, old foes that have been patiently waiting for the Doctor and his friends to be in the right place at the right time so that they can exact their plans and carry out their dastardly deeds.
The Silence are going to play a huge part in the new series of Doctor Who and River Song may just turn out to be the person that the Doctor has the most trouble with but that doesnâ€™t mean that all of his other enemies will just up and leave and forget about their oldest tormentor.
To that effect it seems that the poor old Cybermen are feeling a little bit left out in the cold and so have decided to make an appearance for this latest series!
From a picture that was released in this weekâ€™s Radio Times and also now on the official Doctor Who website we can clearly see Rory Williams Pond, dressed as the Lone Centurion, facing off against a Cyberleader and at least three Cybermen.
But where exactly does this fit in with the overall story arc of the season? And why is Rory dressed as the centurion? Is this all part of a trap devised by the Doctor and his friends or did the Cybermen enlist Roryâ€™s help as he was watching over Amy whilst she was locked away in the Pandorica last year?
All these questions and hopefully more will be answered in the first half of this yearâ€™s series but the sure bet is that the story is going to be worth waiting for!
