Doctor Who – Nightmare In Silver

Hedgewick’s World of Wonders was once the greatest theme park in the galaxy, but it’s now the dilapidated home to a shabby showman, a chess-playing dwarf and a dysfunctional army platoon.

Executive produced by Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner

Directed by Stephen Woolfenden

Written by Neil Gaiman

Produced by Denise Paul

Series produced by Marcus Wilson

    I’m excited about the return of the Cybermen. THE REAL CYBERMEN. Not those stupid robots that stomp around and shout “DELETE!!!” I’m also glad those people who have no access to the old series will finally see what Cybermen are.

    This will be a classic for sure.

    You have better Cybermen which were long overdue (the previous lot just stomped, they didn’t DO anything and that signature tune was hammy as a pork factory).

    It’s got a great performance from Matt Smith against the Cybermen, you’ve got what appears to be CYBER-DOCTOR ( 😯 ) and it will be VERY SCARY, Neil Gaiman said so.

    Plus there will be, according to Moffat, a Cyber-something-else ❓

    Cannot wait for this episode, They recorded two sets of voices for these new cybermen, one of them sounding like the tenth planet voice, the other sounding like the tomb of the cybermen voice. I hope to god when the cybermen appear for the first time there is a new theme tune in the style of the Tomb cybermen theme, just slightly revamped.

    know one really knows you will just have to wait till the episode

    most likely reason Clara wanted to show them space so the doctor picked them up and took them to the greatest theme park in the universe


    April 27th, 2013 - 2:42pm

    The new Cybermen are form our Universe and will have either TTP style voices or TTOTC voices.

    the official symbols from, name of the doctor, has been released by the bbc

    Clara is summoned to an impossible conference call, alerting her that the deadly Whisper Men are closing in on Vastra, Jenny and Strax. Someone is kidnapping the Doctor’s friends, leading him toward the one place in all of time and space that he should never go. It’s a deadly trap that threatens to unravel his past, present and future…

    Tony, i couldn’t agree more. There were soooo many Dalek episodes and they just HAD TO escelate the whole dalek scenario. There hasn’t been a good cybermen episode and i don’t mean that DREADFUL cybermen from another dimension, i mean good creativity but don’t drag it on with the new ones. I want to see it classic and not some identical shape but SURPRISE! They upgrade others into more of them. My point is, you get the meaning of classic Doctor Who not immitation grab some NEW idea out of a bag and throw it out there. And the episodes like how you say are what Doctor Who need.

    Im a little fed up with all these kids appearing left, right and centre. They really have turned it into a kids show. Whilst its true, Doctor Who was created as a childrens show, it didnt pander to them or dumb itself down. It respected each and every age group, taking itself basically seriously but with humour injected at various points. Now I feel the reverse is true.

    The crew consists of three men, so not only would one of them have to die, but one would need to switch genders in the ensuing two episodes.

    clara probably wanted them to see the universe so the doctor picks them up and takes them to the best them park in the universe

    It’s a show about time travel, it’s kinda hard to expect it to be simple.

  • Dalek The Supreme

    April 26th, 2013 - 2:38pm

    The stomping kinda broadcast a warning: Oh no! It’s the Cybermen! Get packed and get moving before they come and get you in oh, half an hour, maybe a whole hour? I think the original Cybermen were scarier because they looked more organic and could be silent if they wanted to, but also very strong.

  • Dalek The Supreme

    April 26th, 2013 - 2:36pm

    Or, they could already be there and the Doctor might not know about it.

  • Dalek The Supreme

    April 26th, 2013 - 2:36pm

    Um, the Doctor’s methods have helped him survive almost every time. I don’t think Rose has much right in criticizing the methods that have helped the Doctor surivive for centuries…
