      I think I remember in a back issue of DWM showed part of a script and it had a mugshot of a Cyberleader in the form of these new Cybermen,I could be wrong however as it may have been a first concept idea, I say the best thing to do is wait and see, as all Doctor Who fans know… time is relative :XD:

    I really enjoyed Patrick Troughton,s Invasion story back in 1968 and if this story is a sequel too that one bring it on soon with Peter, can,t wait.

      O.k. lets be honest the Cybermen are The Best Monsters in The “Who-niverse” So Good they were and let’s be kind here, “copied” by Star Trek, i.e. The Borg, and Better than the much over used Daleks (Yawn!!)
      End of!

      Let’s just hope they’re at their Sneaky Best and not being despatched in some oh so lame way as in the past.

      I am sure Peter Capaldi will be an Excellent Doctor,

      Glad to see they’ve gone for someone older with some gravity and personality this time around.

      O.k. Let’s be perfectly clear about this,

      There is No chance of this ever happening in the near future but?…

      I do think it would have been Great to see Benedict Cumberbatch as The Doctor and Tom Hiddlston as The Master I think they would definately be a Fantastic combination!

      Bring back Sutekh all is Forgiven!

      “Who Rocks!”
      Peace Out

      Daleks are No.1, Cybermen come 2nd – ALWAYS 🙂

  • Macster

    July 22nd, 2014 - 2:40pm

    Great to see the Cybermen again,They were always my favourite Monster,

    How about Tom Hiddlston as The Master.

    • Steve Jarvis

      July 23rd, 2014 - 5:57am

      Tom Hiddleston as the Master! Are you mad? Yes, you clearly are, but in a and visionary kind of way. What an excellent idea.

  • The Moffat Paradox

    July 22nd, 2014 - 12:29am

    As in the original Invasion I do hope they are actually up to no good here and not just helping the Doctor as some have thought from the other photos.It really shouldn’t be much of a choice between being cyberised or exterminated.

    • Obsie

      July 22nd, 2014 - 10:33am

      Agreed, let them make bad as they were intended. Can’t beat a good Cyberman (if you see what I mean).

    In an earlier picture from this shoot I saw (what I thought was) an Invasion Cyberman head!
    Some more left overs from the Troughton story?


      July 21st, 2014 - 3:45pm

      It is an Invasion Cyberman head.

    Well well well! Someone’s looking proud of their plan working!

    • The Other

      July 21st, 2014 - 10:51am

      You can picture what’s going through his head:
      “Aah, at last, no one can stop us now!
      It only took us 47 years, 8 design overhauls, and a load of time travel since our first try to succeed!
      You don’t see The Daleks with those stats now do you!?
      Now… hang on… who’s that old guy?Carrying that old Cyber-head?
      *GASP* NOOO! IT’S HIM!”
      LOL XD

      July 21st, 2014 - 4:18pm

      LOL. Actually, the Daleks did beat the Doctor once. It took them 47 years, and an almost complete redesign, but they did beat him. So now the Cybermen are embarrassed as well as dead!

    • Obsie

      July 22nd, 2014 - 10:36am

      Or “Does my bum look big in this?”

    • The Other

      August 6th, 2014 - 11:35pm

      @Dalek The Supreme
      If you’re referring to Victory of The Daleks, then I don’t really count that as a victory, more of a successful escape and the chance to rebuild
      I see a victory for them as a successful conquest, or Exterminating one of their enemies, such as the entire Time Lord race, or even better, THE DOCTOR!

    Nice to see a two-part final again; the tension-built-up to the cliffhanger always gives me goosebumps!

    • Obsie

      July 23rd, 2014 - 8:16am

      I thought Mr M said he wasn’t keen on two-part stories; wonder what changed his mind.

  • Prof Horner

    July 20th, 2014 - 5:34pm

    No! Please say they have found episode 1 and 4 of THE Invasion.

    what monsters would people like to see in the new series. i’d like to see the ice warriors return with the flood.

    • the astronaut of death

      July 20th, 2014 - 1:15pm

      I think the ice warriors should have a return and I would love to see the zygons again


      July 20th, 2014 - 3:19pm

      A modern Special Weapons Gunner Dalek, and the Slitheen, cos they was dead funny back in series 1, and they to me are a classic monster in their own right from the early days of modern Doctor Who.

    • Anonymous

      July 20th, 2014 - 5:54pm

      The Sea Devils, Autons, Rutans, The Vastra Nevarda, Sontarans, Sycorax and Axons

    • 100,000BC

      July 21st, 2014 - 12:15pm

      Raston Warrior Robot, more Zygons, the Rani or Master, Davros, Autons, Special Weapon Dalek, SERIOUS Sontarans and other surprise classic monsters (i.e. Sea Devils, the Mara, etc.)

    • The Surgeon

      July 21st, 2014 - 4:08pm

      I’d like to see the Rutans appear, and I think it could be cool if the Blathereen turned up. I know that sounds stupid, but I think a visit to Raxacoricofalapatorius with the Slitheen and Blathereen could be good.

      Morbius? Omega? WOTAN & The War Machines, Thals, Zarbi, Sensorites, Mechanoids, The Celestial Toymaker, The Eight Legs, Vervoids, Graske, Reapers, Yeti, The Dream Lord, Gelth, The Black Guardian, Krynoids, Skarasens, Macra, Krotons, Quarks, so many that Doctor Who can choose

    • The Moffat Paradox

      Proper Silurians which also means Sea Devils,Sea Devils and more Sea Devils!

      Would be interesting as well if this Doctor returned to Peladon.

      I’d like to see a singular villain return, someone who doesn’t appear in masses like the Daleks, even though I am suffering from the disease we all know as “Dalekmania” :XD:, I think it’d be cool as a one off to see a baddie like Meglos return or maybe have a strand off an original monster like we did with the Silurians, It’d be cool to see what they’d do with a monster like the Mara, I mean I got into classic Who after Eccleston stepped to the console (first classic story Remembrance of the Daleks) and I enjoyed learning about the old show and all the old monsters. I can just imagine if there were a cult dedicated to the Mara where the people mutate into snakes… that would really up the creepy factor.

    It was amazing being there. Capaldi was an absolute gentlemen and really spent time with the fans between filming. Really can’t wait to see this when its done.

    • the astronaut of death

      July 20th, 2014 - 1:54am

      Did you get his aughtograpgh or anything

      What happened during filming


      July 20th, 2014 - 7:32am

      Astronaut of Death – I’d rather not know what happened during filming, cos if Doctor Simeon starts blabbering about what he saw when they was filming that it might only spoil it, not just for me, but for others as if it wasn’t bad enough having 5 scripts posted online and an edited version of ‘Deep Breath’ also posted online as well which has no doubt made Moffat and everyone who works on the show extremely annoyed already.

      Still, if he got Capaldi’s Autograph – lucky man !! 😀

    • DalekSec

      July 20th, 2014 - 9:23am

      I think he just got a posed photo!

    • the astronaut of death

      July 20th, 2014 - 1:14pm

      oh right sorry

      but did you get his autograph doctor simeon

    • Doctor Simeon

      July 22nd, 2014 - 1:47pm

      I didn’t see too much, nothing with plot details anyway. Just lots of Cybermen marching around.

      I did indeed get a photo with him and his autograph on the 12th Doctor DWM Art Card.

      I also met and had photos with Steven Moffat, Michelle Gomez, Ailsa Berk, Tracie Simpson and Peter Bennett. And Moffat signed my Day of the Doctor print.

      Doubt it, but it is a nice reminder of that story.

      ‘The Invasion’ was aired in 1968, by the way.

    • Steve Jarvis

      July 23rd, 2014 - 6:10am

      The Invasion was definitely one of the second Doctor’s more dramatic and cohesive stories, excellently delivered… It would be a shame to meddle with it. Just my opinion, though.

  • Graham Frank Lawton

    July 19th, 2014 - 7:47pm

    Will they dk classic walk down steeps I hope


      July 20th, 2014 - 7:35am

      No they won’t, ans they can’t anyway, cos since the 1968 Cybermen walked down the steps outside St Paul’s filmed there years ago, the so called ‘Wobbly Bridge’ was built in between St Paul’s and the Tate Modern art gallery, so instead of them going down them steps, they may as well be walking over the bridge.


    July 19th, 2014 - 4:46pm

    DAMN !!. Every time I go up London, nothing interesting ever happens !! 😛
