It has been confirmed that the Doctor will be facing a blast from the very distant past in Series 10 when the Mondasian Cybermen return for the grand finale.

Filming has now begun on Episodes 11 and 12, directed by Rachel Talalay, which will mark the first time the original metal monsters have been seen on screen in over 50 years.

Written by Steven Moffat, the climactic two-parter will also guest star Matt Lucas as Nardole and Michelle Gomez as Missy alongside Pearl Mackie as companion Bill.

Are you excited to see the Mondasian Cybermen again? The new series begins 15th April.

    I’m confused more than anything, but I suppose if older models of Dalek can be seen on screen, older models of Cybermen can too.

    I suppose what makes this different is that the Cybermen want to upgrade and this is a very retro design for them. Still, I’m interested to see them as a Revived Era fan and I guess a lot of Classic Era fans will be excited to see them back.

    I look forward to learning more about them. An interesting decision.

    Your slightly wrong mate. Your right when you say that we saw old different models of the daleks last season but your wrong when you compare that to the Cybermen. All the daleks are the same except sometimes they are edited a bit to make them even more evil, but all cybermen are not. These are the Original Cybermen from the planet Mondas (earths twin planet) and the planet housed beings who decided to upgrade themselves. They went into hybernation which is when the second doctor found them in 1977’s tomb of the Cybermen. He defeated them and trapped them back in their tombs but considering this finale uses Missy , I’m guessing she decides to go to mondas and free them. The modern Cybermen you know and maybe prefer are technically a different species of Cybermen all together considering the tennant ones were created by a dying human in a parallel universe and the smith and capaldi Ones were built by themselves for a war. These are the genuine articl compare these to the renegade daleks@JC

    Well, I am a Revived Era fan, so I don’t know much about the Mondas Cybermen, although I did know they were different to the Cybermen (or Cybusmen, as some people call them) of “Pete’s World”. I also know that the design of the Mondas Cybermen changed over time, so that’s why I was confused at them still looking so retro, but if as you say they’re the ones that were trapped in Tomb Of The Cybermen, that may explain it.

    It sounds like I should read up more on the Mondas Cybermen before Series 10 starts.

    I am happy that these Cybermen are coming back – almost!! Big Finish have completed a Genesis story in the excellent Spare Parts. These look almost upgraded to the start of the Patrick Troughton story, so is this just after Tenth Planet? The only thing that will ruin this is the Pantomime known as Missy to the rest!
