In a new Doctor Who Series 8 interview released by the BBC, Steven Moffat has teased that a “major foe” is returning.
He isn’t speaking about the Daleks – could it be the Cybermen he refers to, or is it a hint of a masterly presence in Peter Capaldi’s first run?
Here’s how he put it: “We’ve got some cracking new monsters – the Teller. And we’ve got some cracking old monsters – the Daleks will be back. Another major foe will be making a return, but more of that later.”
Depending on when the interview was recorded, Moffat could be referring to Cybermen prior to the various location shoots that took place in London last month. Alternatively, he could be referring to a return for the Master, heavily rumoured in the early days of Series 8’s production.
