Neil Gaiman To Pen 2013 Doctor Who Episode Featuring Cybermen

BBC has announced that acclaimed author Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Coraline) will return to pen another episode of Doctor Who, which is slated to air next year as part of the series eight-episode spring run.

The episode will feature the Cybermen, the menacing cyborgs that have plagued the doctor since 1966.

Warwick Davis, Tamzin Outhwaite, and Jason Watkins are also set to co-star in the hour-long episode, alongside Matt Smith and new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman, who will make her debut in the upcoming Christmas special.

“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,” executive producer Steven Moffat said in a statement via the network. “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.”
