I'm looking forward to seeing Warwick Davis in this...


Whats with the SFX previews recently? Constantly putting little digs on episodes.
the reviews from them seem a bit...off this year. In the past their spoiler free previews used to be more about giving a few teasers and hints about an episode to wheat the appetite, lately it just seems to be about having a sly dig (not even making constructive criticisms) which kind of goes against the whole point of what their previews used to do.

Must admit I am getting quite weary of this current trend of using CBBC as a way to attack the quality of this/other shows. CBBC has been responsible for some of the finest, most creative and engaging shows made by the BBC in recent years.

Stcoop fits right in at SFX.

You really can't cope with people not worshiping every aspect of the show can you, you pathetic losers.

What do people think the new voices will be like? I hope they're different. Not to robotic or monotonous. I think sometimes it's too easy to forget that Cybermen aren't actually robots.

They created 6 different voices for this, not even Nick Briggs knows which one they're going with. One was like the Cybus voices, another like Tomb of the Cybermen voices etc... and the final one was simply Nick's voice normally so that they could apply whatever effects they wanted in post production. I cant wait to see which one they've gone with

Radio Times interviews Neil and gives away some minor spoilers.
Neil, could you give us a non-spoilery encapsulation of the story?

Easily! It just stops at about minute three. The Doctor has been talked by Clara into taking the two kids she looks after, Artie and Angie, for an excursion, a day out, and he decides to take them to Hedgewick’s World, the biggest, best and most wonderful amusement park in the galaxy, a quarter of a million years in the future, because he has a golden ticket and it gets four people in for free, gets you free ice creams and it gets you to the front of any line, which is great because the lines for the Spacey Zoomer can go on for weeks. And that’s where it starts.

Unfortunately, it also starts with them discovering that Hedgewick’s World has been closed for several years and there’s almost nobody on it now except for a small army troop on manoeuvres and a mad old showman named Mr Webley who landed his spaceship there after it closed and is now there with a Cyberman that plays chess. That’s where it begins. This is also 1,000 years after the end of the big human/Cyberman war – where we won.

There are some well-known actors in the episode. Can you tell us about the characters they’re playing?

Jason Watkins plays Mr Webley, this wonderful, slightly alcoholic old showman touring the universe with a waxworks and a chess-playing Cyberman. Warwick Davis is his henchman, who is called Porridge. He’s affable, sweet and helps Webley and cannot wait to get off this planet.

Tamzin Outhwaite is a captain named Alice Ferren who’s in charge of the platoon doing troop exercises on an abandoned amusement park planet and as we discover, as the story goes on, it’s actually a punishment platoon. They’re all people who’ve got into trouble. She was sent there for disobeying orders. They’re not the kind of crack troop you’d want if it so happened that a Cyberman moves in – a new model Cyberman that we haven’t seen, who is absolutely lethal and hyper-intelligent.

Cultbox Spoiler-Free Review:

'Nightmare' will be (perhaps unfairly) judged in a similar way, by the twin hopes of what a Cybermen story should be, and the high-quality fans demand from a Gaiman-written episode. In both categories of judgement it comes up lacking.
3/5

Who cares about reviews, let's make our own minds up!

Last weeks was superb and it didn't get the kind of reviews it deserved.

The fact that most of the reviews constantly cite The Doctor's wife proves it is not being fairly judged.

That episode in my eyes was as close to perfect as perfect could be in 45 mins.

So even if this episode is 2 thirds as good, we are in for a treat.

What happened to that series, anyway? Why wasn't it ever released on DVD?

Speaking as someone who thought The Doctor's Wife was distinctly average (by Who standards so still a great ep) if the reviews think it's not that, I'm hopeful it will be a classic (that said, most reviews have matched my opinion so far this season, Cold War being the main exception).
