Review

After defeating a Dalek in 2019, the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) now comes face to faceplate with the series’s other great baddies – silvery cyborgs the Cybermen, back with a slightly tweaked design (new handles!) and a particularly ruthless attitude.

In the first of a two-part finale that concludes next week, the Doctor and her friends arrive in the far future at the tail end of a dreadful war, with a handful of humans still trying to hold out against the remnants of a Cyber-army.

Soon, the Doctor realises she might have put her friends in some seriously terrible danger – and as the Cybermen march on, expect some seriously shocking moments.

Summary

In the aftermath of the Great CyberWar, the Doctor arrives in the far future, intent on protecting the last of the human race from the deadly Cybermen. But in the face of such a relentless enemy, has she put her best friends at risk? What terrors lie hiding in the depths of space, and what is Ko Sharmus? Guest starring Julie Graham, Patrick O'Kane and Steve Toussaint.
