Doctor Who: Caroline Skinner discusses new twist with Cybermen
The new issue of SFX Magazine, which is out today features a new interview with Doctor Who executive producer Caroline Skinner, who took time out of her busy schedule to discuss a new twist on the Cybermen, which is featured in Neil Gaiman’s second Doctor Who script.
“One of the things that Neil was initially really excited about was being given one of the classic Doctor Who monsters and being able to bring a new twist,” Skinner told the magazine.
The episode is rumored to be called ‘The Last Cyberman’ – will also see the Doctor “in conflict with the Cybermen in a new way”, Skinner hinted.
“[It's] a huge episode for Matt,” she revealed. “It’s a brilliant performance, that one. It’s interesting what Neil does – he always delivers such wonderful visual sequences… but one of his real strengths is that he gets right to the heart of the characters as well.”
As if the return of the Cybermen or indeed a Cyberman was not enough. This latest story by Neil Gaiman also includes some great guest stars, which include Warwick Davis (Life’s Too Short), Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders) and Jason Watkins (Being Human). The episode is also going to be the penultimate story of the season.
The series returns to BBC One on Saturday, March 30 with Steven Moffat’s ‘The Bells of St John’.
