The BBC has posted a picture of Peter Capaldi and guest star Michelle Gomez on set in Cardiff. And guess who’s back?


The Cybermen last appeared in the Eleventh Doctor’s swan song in Christmas 2013 special The Time of the Doctor.

Michelle Gomez will play the Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere. She told BBC “Well of course Peter Capaldi is our next Doctor, which makes complete sense. I’m thrilled to join him. Well, you would be, wouldn’t you?”

Lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, added: “I’ve known Michelle for years, and I’m thrilled to welcome her to Doctor Who. She’s everything we need – brilliant, Scottish, and a tiny bit satanic.”

The umbrella does give her a slightly evil Mary Poppins air…
