Peter Capaldi to face the Cybermen in Doctor Who series 8

By
Peter Capaldi will face off against the Cybermen in his first series of Doctor Who.

The popular monsters will return in the BBC sci-fi drama's eighth series, it has been confirmed.


The BBC posted an image online featuring Capaldi and co-star Michelle Gomez posing alongside Gerry Davis and Kit Pedler's creations.

First devised by Davis and Pedler for 1966 serial 'The Tenth Planet', the Cybermen have recurred on Doctor Who for almost 50 years and are ranked as one of the Time Lord's most dangerous foes.

They last appeared to see off Matt Smith's 11th Doctor in Christmas 2013 special 'The Time of the Doctor'.
