Ever since its title page was leaked on the internet last year via a taxi cab snafu ‘The Last Cyberman’ has been the unofficial title – it has been listed on IMDB ever since – to Neil Gaiman’s return to the Doctor Who fold.
That’s right – the episode formerly known as The Last Cyberman will now forever be known as…
The Last Cyberman.
Confirming what we already knew the author of American Gods and The Doctor’s Wife told themusic.com:
I’ve written [one] that broadcasts in May. It guest stars Warwick Davis, Tamzin Outhwaite and Jason Watkins. The episode is called “The Last Cyberman.” It’s about identity, it’s about responsibility and it’s about porridge [Porridge being the name Warrick Davis’ character].
Sharing his thoughts on his favourite Doctor Gaiman also let slip that Matt Smith is the only actor to capture the Doctor’s true nature:
It used to be Patrick Troughton, because he was my doctor, the one I grew up with. Yet, Matt Smith is amazing, and it’s writing for him that gives me an increased awareness of how amazing [he is]. He is technically one of England’s finest actors. Matt for me is the only Doctor who really feels a thousand years old and a kid – he really is this ancient space alien.
