The Mas­ter (John Simm) is back, along with Missy (Michelle Gomez). Michelle has con­firmed this to be her last se­ries, so would it be a fair guess to think the pair could be say­ing their fi­nal farewells in next week’s fi­nale?

Hor­rors wait­ing on board in­clude the Mas­ter (John Simm, back af­ter six years), who’ll be meet­ing up with Missy, even though they’re dif­fer­ent in­car­na­tions of the same Time Lord! But the most ter­ri­fy­ing pas­sen­gers of all are Mon­dasian Cy­ber­men – the orig­i­nal form of one of the Doctor’s dead­li­est, most fa­mous foes. They first turned up in 1966, and have long been a favourite Doctor Who alien of Peter Ca­paldi’s. He’ll be happy these cloth-faced semime­chan­i­cal be­ings are back, but his Doctor has one hell of a bat­tle on his hands…
