Doctor Who fans are in for a new year's treat as the BBC has confirmed that the Doctor go up against her biggest threat, a "relentless" new version of the Cybermen.
The 12th season will return with a two-part special on New Year's Day that will see Jodie Whittaker return as the Thirteenth doctor for an action-packed series.
Now showrunner Chris Chibnell has claimed fans will see the Doctor go up the new version of the Cybermen because there was a "particular story" he was keen to tell.
Speaking to Radio Times, Chris said: "I really wanted to see Jodie against the Cybermen.
"There are certain monsters you want to see a Doctor go up against. She met a Dalek in Resolution last New Year."
He added: "Cybermen feel like an important part of the rogues gallery and we've done something slightly different with them this year – there was a particular story I wanted to tell. They're just relentless, the Cybermen. They just don't stop."
The Cybermen first appeared on screens in 1966 and alongside the Daleks are the Doctor's most terrifying threat.
After the season premiere on Wednesday 1st January on BBC One, episodes will air on Sunday evenings.
New Year's Day's exciting two-part episode, Spyfall, will no doubt whet fans' episodes for the thrilling saga ahead, with Jodie's Doctor taking charge of the TARDIS once again.
She will be joined by her usual companions Ryan [Tosin Cole], Yaz [Mandip Gill], and Graham [Bradley Walsh] – with a host of famous faces also set to make cameo appearances throughout the twelfth series.
Stephen Fry, Sir Lenny Henry, Robert Glenister, and Goran Višnjić are just some of the big names confirmed to guest-star in the coming episodes.
Season 12 marks Jodie's second outing as the Time Lord, with Chibnall previously letting slip that the new monsters are "absolutely terrifying".
He said: "I think we've got some amazing monsters. It's probably a bit scarier."
