Cybermen, Warwick Davis, Tamzin Outhwaite for Neil Gaiman's Doctor Who episode in 2013

Neil Gaiman's upcoming Doctor Who story is currently in production in Cardiff, with the BBC revealing a stellar cast and the return of the Cybermen.

Created by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, the classic monsters made their Doctor Who debut in 1966 and are set to feature in the second half series seven next year.

Stephen Woolfenden will direct Gaiman's episode which features guest stars Warwick Davis (Life’s Too Short and Harry Potter), Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders and Hotel Babylon) and Jason Watkins (Being Human and Lark Rise to Candleford) as a "band of misfits on a mysterious planet".

Steven Moffat, Lead Writer and Executive Producer, said, ‘Cybermen were always the monsters that scared me the most! Not just because they were an awesome military force, but because sometimes they could be sleek and silver and right behind you without you even knowing. ’

He added, ‘And with one of the all-time classic monsters returning, and a script from one of our finest novelists, it's no surprise we have attracted such stellar names as Tamzin, Jason and Warwick.’

Doctor Who will return for a festive special at Christmas, to be followed by the remaining eight episodes of series seven in Spring 2013.
