Original Mondasian Cybermen Return to Doctor Who!

From the official site

The original Mondasian Cybermen return to Doctor Who as filming begins on the final block of the forthcoming series…

Filming has begun on the final two episodes of Doctor Who series 10, with this first look image revealing the return of a much-feared classic foe.

The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is pictured with the Mondasian Cybermen – the original version of the Doctor’s deadly enemies who hail from the planet Mondas and have not been seen in Doctor Who for over fifty years.

The Mondasian Cybermen – Peter Capaldi’s long-time favourite foe – will return in episodes 11 and 12 of the series, alongside Capaldi as the Doctor, Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts, Matt Lucas as Nardole and Michelle Gomez as Missy. The episodes, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay, are now filming in Cardiff.

    Interesting that you say that; in the Moffat era the Daleks have only ever come into contact with a few people (the Doctor, his companions, Churchill, Bracewell, a few WWII soldiers, the small cast of Into The Dalek [briefly], and Missy). This feels to me like they are being undermined – They’re just silly pepperpots when there is nobody to exterminate.

    Plus Capaldi really wanted the Doctor to meet his grand daughter, Susan. I would love to see that myself. Capaldi’s final story at Xmas would be ideal to see him meet up with Susan. Perhaps they could both regenerate at the end. In a story I would call ‘The Time Lord Invasion of Earth’. Set on a future Xmas on Earth, where the Doctor reunites with Susan, and a disgruntled Rassilon decides to take the Earth, and make it his ‘new’ Gallifrey. Plus Rassilon would be supported by the Master(Missy), the meddling monk, the Rani, Morbius and the Valeyard to name just a few rouge timelords.

    Can we expect the fish people from ‘The Underwater Menace’ to come back too. 🙂

    Great minds think alike, as the saying goes.

    The Daleks need to exterminate more people as well. When rusty killed those two soldiers in series 8 at the start that’s the first time we’d seen a Dalek properly exterminate and kill somebody since series 5

    If its set in 1986, then its probably a story where:
    A) They explain how the Cybermen survived the destruction of Mondas or
    B) Another Attack style story where various different types of Cybermen team up to save Mondas.
    I personally think it’ll be set in the modern day because of rumours I’ve heard about this series’ story arc.
