Silurians to return to 'Doctor Who'
A tribe of Silurians will appear in the next series of Doctor Who.

The Sun reports that fans of the programme urged new showrunner Steven Moffat to bring back the lizard creatures.

The Silurians were first seen trying to spread a virus in 1970, but their last appearance was in 1984 when they built their own nuclear weapons.

Neve McIntosh, who has been cast as twin monsters, revealed that she is watching old episodes to try to understand the creatures.

Speaking about the new Silurians, she explained: "They're one of the Silurian tribes that have been undisturbed under the earth. And of course we get disturbed."
