Returning later in Doctor Who Series 7 are the Cybermen, wreaking havoc in their freshly designed new look – but other than that we knew little, until Nicholas Briggs kindly filled in fans at the Lords of Time convention in New Zealand last weekend.
There is a lot to get through above, but the key facts are as follows:
- Nicholas Briggs recorded two types of Cyberman voice, one in the style of The Tenth Planet and another similar to The Tomb of the Cybermen. He claims not to know which will be used in the finished episode.
- Additionally, these Cybermen don’t talk as much as they have been known to.
- Excitingly for fans of classic Doctor Who, the Cybermen are not from Pete’s World – these are the real deal!
Nightmare in Silver by Neil Gaiman heralds the return of the Cybermen, scheduled for May 11th on BBC One and BBC America.
