Regarding future episodes news, please assume that 'It has been rumoured that, suggested that' and 'media articles point to the idea that' is in front of every sentence,so you won't be disappointed. Most news is cobbled together from various sources and can change at the last minute, and that includes titles of stories! Most of this is NOT confirmed. Please enjoy these possible spoilers while waiting for the real news!

Doctor Who first started in the UK on the 23rd November 1963 and ran continually until 1989. (There was a test screening of the pilot episode a week previously in a small area of London but that doesn't count!) Doctor Who continued in the form of books, stage plays, comics, magazines and audio adventures. In 1996 a US/UK co-financed telemovie burst onto our screens. It didn't rate well in the US so a related series was never taken up. 2005 and Russell T Davies got the nod to bring back Doctor Who as a TV series. In 2010 Steven Moffat continued the legacy. Doctor Who has been reconfirmed for another annual series in 2016. Squeeeee!

The Actor's Request Story
Peter Capaldi gets his wish and has his childhood cybermen in this episode. The first cybermen from Mondas, the twin planet of Earth from our universe.
These could be the ones that escaped the destruction of the Tenth Planet, of which the Doctor is partly responsible. Will they get their revenge?

I just hope that they bring back the Zarbi, Menoptera and Optera for the Christmas special!

3613X. Fall of the House of The Doctor (Projected Title)
276. 251217 by Steven Moffat
Does the Animus cause the Doctor's regeneration? Will we see Vortis again? Will a Zarbi run into a camera?
It would be so cool to have these in Doctor Who again for we classic series fans. At this stage, there is no information on who/what will be the antagonist in this episode.
