Author Neil Gaiman (“Sandman”), who won a Hugo for writing the 2011 “Doctor Who” episode “The Doctor’s” wife, will have another “Who” episode air this coming spring.
The new episode will see The Doctor tangle with the Cybermen – evil cyborgs not glimpsed since last year’s “Closing Time” episode.
Warwick Davis, of "Willow" and "Life's Too Short" fame, will star in the installment.
Gaiman’s installment will be one of eight airing on BBC One and BBC America early next year.
