Jodie, 37, will return as the thirteenth and first female incarnation of Doctor Who alongside companions Yasmin Khan (played by Mandip Gill), Graham O’Brien (Bradley Walsh) and Ryan Sinclair (Tosin Cole) when the BBC sci-fi series makes a comeback next year.
After the New Year’s Day hour-long special, which saw the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) take on eerily sinister and metallic-cased beings the Daleks, it was announced the show wouldn’t return until 2020.
With the Judoon lined-up for a battle with the ancient Time Lord in the upcoming series, fans will be pleased to know the throwbacks to the past don’t end there.
It has been reported the Cybermen, a long time enemy of the Gallifreyan being, will come face-to-face with the Doctor in a “dark” plot connected to one of the greatest horror novelists of the past.
Things are about to get darker
The Cybermen have not been seen since Peter Capaldi’s, 61, twelfth incarnation of the iconic Time Lord struggled to fight a deadly attack from the metallic race at the end of the tenth season.
Missy (Michelle Gomez) and her past incarnation The Master (John Simm) joined forces to reconstruct an army of the sinister beings, but the Doctor was able to foil their plot, only to take the full force of a deadly blast from the Cybermen himself.
Although he fought valiantly, the twelfth Doctor finally succumbed to the Cyberman’s blast in the 2017 Christmas special Twice Upon a Time, paving way for Jodie’s incarnation to take on the role.
Like many times before, the Time Lords may have believed they’d seen the last of the part-human, part-machine beings, but recent reports suggest otherwise.
It seems the Cybermen will be the monsters terrorising 19th Century England as they inspire author Mary Shelley to pen the novel Frankenstein.
A source told The Mirror: “This new run is much scarier than Jodie’s first year and will definitely put the frighteners on fans.”
