Gaiman on The Last Cyberman
Neil Gaiman is sticking with the episode title we first heard last year for his upcoming Series 7 story, the penultimate of the run.
He told TheMusic: “I’ve written [one] that broadcasts in May. It guest stars Warwick Davis, Tamzin Outhwaite and Jason Watkins. The episode is called The Last Cyberman.
He adds: “It’s about identity, it’s about responsibility and it’s about porridge.”
Warwick Davis is playing a character called Porridge, so presumably he is referring to him.
Gaiman also reveals his favourite Doctor: “I think it’s really hard. It used to be Patrick Troughton, because he was my doctor, the one I grew up with. Yet, Matt Smith is amazing, and it’s writing for him that gives me an increased awareness of how amazing [he is]. He is technically one of England’s finest actors. Matt for me is the only Doctor who really feels a thousand years old and a kid – he really is this ancient space alien.”
