The Original Cybermen Return

    Sometimes retro is good. Other times, not so much. The BBC released a photo of what the Cybermen will look like in the final two episodes of series ten. As you can see, they are going for the original look of the Cybrmen rom their first appearance in “The Tenth Planet” over fifty years ago.
     Showrunner Steven Moffat said many times in the past he was planning to send current Doctor actor Peter Capaldi off with a bang. Capaldi was a fan from his younger days, so it makes sense he would bring back an old villain. I am a bit skeptical bringing back the Cybermen back in their original form in 2017 might not work too well.
      Anyone remember when Moffat redesigned the Daleks into rainbow colors? For a mercifully brief period of time, an army of Daleks looked like a spilled bag of Skittles. I would hope Moffat would have learned from his decision considering the fan backlash, but it looks as though he has not. Crows your fingers and hope I am wrong.
