Lauded Dr Who scriptwriter back
Neil Gaiman, who won a Hugo Award for his last Doctor Who episode, 2011’s The Doctor’s Wife, will script an episode for the current series. Executive producer Steven Moffat confirms Gaiman will script the episode that features the return of the Cybermen (pictured). The cyborgs have been enemies of the Time Lord since 1966. They last appeared in 2011’s Closing Time. The episode will also co-star Life’s Too Short’s Warwick Davis, EastEnders’ Tamzin Outhwaite and Being Human’s Jason Watkins. Stephen Woolfenden, a director from the Harry Potter films, will direct.
