Looks like The Cybermen are set for the new series of Doctor Who

A new report has it that Jodie Whittaker’s TARDIS travelling time lord will be facing off against one of his, em, her most fearsome foes in the show’s next series.

Yes, the Cybermen are back… let’s hope they’re better than the return of the Daleks on New Year’s Day, right?

In the series, the Doctor will reportedly face-off against them in the 19th Century.

In the episode, the Cybermen will appear in and episode based around Frankenstein author Mary Shelley and will reportedly be the inspiration behind her writing that classic gothic horror.

“This new run is much scarier than Jodie’s first year and will definitely put the frighteners on fans. Things are about to get darker for the Doctor,” runs the report.

In the non-official Doctor Who canon of the Big Finish adventures, Shelly has already met The Doctor played by Paul McGann. I wouldn’t expect this to be part of this new outing.

So, what say you all? I want to hear your thoughts, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
