Whilst we wait with breath that’s positively baited for the Festivus episode of “Doctor Who“, which will feature new companion Jenna Louise Coleman and perhaps answer some unresolved questions, news reaches this blog of Neil Gaiman-based wonderment in the soon-come season 7B – as in, the Hugo-scoffing Brit Goth Lord has enlisted Cybermen in the weaving of his latest ep.
The cast for the ep – announced by the BBC here on the official “Who” site – also includes SF stalwart Warwick Davis, soap escapee Tamzin Outhwaite and Jason Watkins (previously seen in “Being Human”, apparently) and is set in space again, as Gaiman’s previous, genius episode “The Doctor’s Wife” was to quite fine effect.
Behold the wonder in Spring 2013, I’m guessing.
