Doctor Who Christmas Special Will Feature Cybermen

Matt Smith started filming his last episode on Sunday, September 8. The cast returned to Cardiff on Friday for a read through of Moffat’s script for the Christmas special, with the BBC sharing a picture of Smith on their blog.

Smith confirmed in an interview that he would be wearing a wig for the filming, as he shaved his hair to film his first Hollywood movie, Ryan Goslings How to Catch a Monster.

The new 12th Doctor, Peter Capaldi, was on hand as well. He is expected to make his debut towards the end of the episode. While the BBC is keeping the storyline of the episode under wraps, it has been confirmed that the Cybermen will be in the episode, as stunt person Darralle “Daz” Parker tweeted “Great to be stunting again for Dr Who in the Christmas special playing a Cyberman!”

The Christmas episode will be the second special this year, with the 50th anniversary special scheduled to air on November 25th.
